Top 20 Best AFI Songs – Editors Choice

afi-a-fire-inside-wallpaper

I first came across AFI in 1997. They were one of the two opening bands for The Offspring, my favorite band at the time, who were on tour in support of the Ixnay on the Hombre album. I instantly loved AFI and a couple weeks later I picked up their first album, Answer That and Stay Fashionable. From then on I bought each new release. When AFI was recording Sing the Sorrow in late 2002, I definitely considered them to be one of my favorite bands and that record was one of the most anticipated albums that I can remember. Sing the Sorrow will probably go down as their best, most complete album but my personal favorite is The Art of Drowning. AFI has since released Decemberunderground and Crash Love, both good albums but I am partial to their older material. Overall, AFI is one of my all-time favorite bands and one of my endorsed bands here on my blog. Try and catch them live, they are amazing.

The following is a list of my 20 favorite AFI songs. This is not a list of their best songs, necessarily. Check out my Top 20 AFI Songs post for a more objective list of their best songs. I also posted the Top 15 Widely Unknown AFI Songs and the Top 15 Underrated AFI Songs here on Music Trajectory.

“Blood For Poppies” by Garbage – The Song of the Week for 4/23/2012

Garbage - band picture - 2012

“Blood for Poppies” by Garbage is the lead single from the band’s 5th studio album Not Your Kind of People, set to be released May 14, 2012

 

Genre: Alternative Rock

“Blood for Poppies” is the first single from Garbage since 2007’s “Tell Me Where It Hurts” from the band’s greatest hits album, Absolute Garbage. Will it be a successful ‘come-back’ single? Time will tell. I for one did not like the song at first but heard it a couple times on the radio and got to liking it quite a bit. It’s a return to some of their earlier work with a very catchy chorus. This is Garbage’s 1st Song of the Week nod.

“Watch the clouds, and I’m falling
Falling through the cracks
Head beats
And my heart is pounding fast
Off the ground
Into the starry dark, into your arms
I’m falling”

Top 15 Underrated AFI Songs

afi-band-picture-black-and-white

After putting together the Top 20 AFI Songs and Top 20 Best AFI Songs – Editors Choice posts here on Music Trajectory, I felt like something was missing. Most of the songs on these lists are singles and widely known AFI songs. Obviously the singles that AFI release and make videos for are great songs but there are plenty of songs in their discography that are amazing and in need of some attention. I wanted to highlight some of those ‘underrated‘ AFI songs.

“Go Right Ahead” by The Hives – The Song of the Week for 4/16/2012

The Hives - band picture - 2012

“Go Right Ahead” by The Hives is the 1st single from the band’s upcoming 5th studio album Lex Hives

I was mild about this song at first but after a few listens I love it. Another catchy song from a band that has made a career out of making rockin’ catchy songs. Looking forward to the new album!

Lex Hives is due out June 4, 2012. “Go Right Ahead” was released April 4, 2012 as the official 1st single.

“Go right ahead
Down the streets in a ufo
Find a bull and you grab the horns
Go right ahead
Spin your head up at the day you were born”
