2 Girls Not Grey

I love everything about this song! It's just so good! Davey's voice is really great!

All songs are great but this one is just the best!

3 Silver and Cold

This song is definitely their best song. The soft, light, yet still melancholy piano opening leading to deeply heart-felt and emotional lyrics sung over a catchy guitar riff, and great drumming provides the perfect combination. This song is the best description of AFI as a whole

This song is just amazing and shows the whole emotion in this album!

This is one of my favorites, I love the feeling of the song

4 Totalimmortal

The dynamics of this song are absolutely incredible. This song is proof of how musically talented these guys are and how Davey Havok is one of the most badass punk singers of all time.
P.S. I love the offspring but them remaking total immortal was a bad decision cause their version sucks

First one I heard, and probably still my favorite. Certainly better than the Offspring version, but I'm still glad they covered it because that's how I discovered AFI.

Davey havok is a god!

So damn good!

5 Love Like Winter

It's between Love Like Winter and Miss Murder, should be 1st or 2nd not 3rd.

This is the song to start with.

6 The Days of the Phoenix

List missing so many songs. Winters Tale, But home is nowhere, now the world, and this celluloid definitely must be on here. AFI definitely = one of the best bands, ever.

I have always loved this song. This is AFI at their best! This song gives you hope for the future, and helps you continue to reach for your dreams!

This song is the best of them, but you guys must to check out "this celluloid dream" because is awesome and so under rated... peace

Old AFI was truly a wonder to behold. No way this song shouldn’t be top ten possibly number one. I mean the prelude to miss murder is better than the actual song.

7 The Leaving Song, Pt. 2

Probably my favorite song by AFI. This should be top three at least. Also, one of the first songs I've heard from them.

First AFI song that caught my attention.

One of the best songs I've heard by AFI

This one rocks so nicely!

8 God Called in Sick Today

It was a tough choice between this, Days of the Phoenix and Totalimmortal.

However, this song speaks to me on a level of how I feel about religion, from the time I first heard the song to present day. Studying religions is one of my favorite pastimes, as much as I find them all completely ridiculous. Whenever the chorus hits with Davey screaming, it makes me smile from ear to ear and cackle with glee. Davey Havok is a lyrical genius, and all the band members are beyond talented in their art. The whole Black Sails album was an absolute masterpiece.

That guitar intro and some of Davey's best melodic singing... The lyrics are amazing, powerful chorus. First AFI song I ever heard and still my favorite.

Greatest song they've made! Anything off black sails and art of drowning is amazing! Anything after is questionable. The old albums are just beyond awesome!

This song has raw emotion that can reel in any AFI fan.

9 Medicate

This song stands out the most. Miss Murder is good but after a while it starts to sound whiny. This song brings something new to the plate, and succeeds greatly.

I love how angry sarcastic he sounds toward society

Even tops miss murder. Guitar break is great.

This is my favorite song forom AFI by far! Great song! Pure energy adrenaline emotions

10 The Great Disappointment

The Contenders

11 I Hope You Suffer

The song that made me listen to AFI in the beginning. Now I love almost all of AFI's songs! AFI rocks!

Who doesn't have someone in their life that this song fits so perfectly.

I've listened to this song so many times I know all the words.

15 The Boy Who Destroyed the World

Really epic track with some great drum work and unforgettable lyrics

This should be #1, Honestly the best AFI song.

First song I heard by them and it'll always be my favorite. And Hunter's bass in this song is fantastic!

Remember when this song was so beautifull

16 Beautiful Thieves

AFI's new album is pretty good, but personally, compared to their older albums, I prefer the old AFI better. This song (and Medicate) would probably be the only ones that I like that are from the new AFI. Still, a magnificent song!

This tears miss murder apart.

17 This Time Imperfect

Hidden Track on Sing The Sorrow. Perhaps a reward for their loyal fans?

Hidden track... why the heck is it hidden?

Amazingly haunting

This, along with Kiss and Control, Miseria Cantare, On the Arrow, and It was Mine are the greatest songs AFI has made.
