So, let me introduce myself.
Hello, I'm Heather and I'm a closet AFI fan.
*everyone chimes in*: Hello, Heather.
I've only dabbled in some of their older stuff before my boyfriend and I started going out a couple of years ago, he's been a fan of their older stuff for some time. When the new album came out he bought it after downloading a couple of songs(he previously didn't own any of the newer stuff since they started their evolution). We were quite taken back at first but I have to say we've grown to love it more and more.
I personally love the kitschy-ness and campyness of it all. And, let's be frank - It's downright catchy as hell.
Not to offend anyone but I have to admit I get a kick out of how much they take themselves seriously. Even better, how much some of the hardcore younger fans take them so seriously. But, I happen to be old and boring and find my personally salvation through Ani DiFranco so that probably makes my view on things a little askewed.
