    Default A Fire inside (AFI)

    So lests have a little AFI thread shall we? Whats your favorite CD and song?
    My favorite CD it black sails in the sunset and song is either god called in sick today or silver and cold.

    All goblin rituals serve a dual purpose as fertility rites, even the destructive ones. Especially the destructive ones.

    My fave CD is Sing The Sorrow, but Seeing as I only have that and The Art Of Drowning I don't have much to choose from.

    Fave song is probably Paper Aeroplanes.

    My fav AFI CD is Shut Your Mouth and Open Your Eyes, with my favorite song being "A Single Second". I saw them a while back and when they did that song, Nick 13 came out to do the vocals with them. It was unbelievably awesome. "This Celluloid Dream" is #2 for me, I think.

    Heh. Reminds me of good ol' JustinSane/PC Fascist/Pacifist Boy or whatever the kid called himself. Why did he ever get banned, eh?

    Haven't heard all their songs, but I do like A Single Second.

    That kid got banned? Haha. He was way cool. We was always talking about how punk rock we were and stuff. Or something like that, anyways...

    He got banned because he was RACIST. Against CHRISTIANS. >:</b>\

    I don't really like AFI, but I think their newest CD is pretty alright.

    AFI's always been in my top three or five favorite bands for as long as I can remember, but Sing the Sorrow puts them on an even higher shelf. They proved that they can make extremely unique music while being commercially successful. One band I never expected to catch on was AFI mainly because Davey Havok's voice doesn't really fit the mainstream stereotype, but I think signing with Dreamworks helped a ton.

    (SPOILER)...biased against Christians? Ban me too.

    You speak this as if it were fact...which it is not.

    I like AFI whenever I hear them on the radio, but for the life of me, I couldn't name you any song titles.

    Regardless of why Justin Sane got banned... which I would still like to know...

    AFI was huge before they signed to Dreamworks. They sold out every show in every city they played, everyone knew who they were, and they were making tons of money. Without signing to Dreamworks they might not be playing huge amphitheaters, but they would still be big, on KROQ and probably on MTV. Oh well. Who knows how things would've gone. They still rock, so it doesn't matter.

    Favourite song comes down to a three way tie between Morningstar, Clove Smoke Catharsis and The Great Disappointment, with their best album being Sing the Sorrow. Gotta say though, their second and third albums are pretty crap, though their first one is decent enough. Then they seemed to find their sound with Black Sails in the Sunset and been doing good stuff since then...

    And daddy is right, AFI made it pretty big with Black Sails in the Sunset and were doing brilliantly as it was; Sing the Sorrow just pushed them that extra little bit further =P
    Seriously the best band in the world.

    There is no way their second and third albums are crap. Both of those are so good, just not anything like their present style. In their genres, they are good music. It seriously is its own genre nowadays. "Old AFI" is a valid musical style. It is used to describe so many bands nowadays, it's rediculous. Anyway, they rock...
