Quotes:

As you get older you will gain a bit more control over everything. Don't let anyone, even your parents, break you. Find good people who care about you and surround yourself with just them. If you can't find them at first, find good music and fall into it and let it hold you until they come...

Band Name Origins:

  • In high school before they even knew how to use their instruments, they came up with the name "ants farming indonesia" since they never thought they'd make it big. I read it in Smash Magazine back in '95. Submitted by: Myst
  • The band comprised of Davey, Jade, Adam, and Hunter has always stood for "A Fire Inside". Previously, it was known as Anthems For Insubordinates, and NOT (despite popular belief) Asking For It. The reason fans were told to write to Asking For It was because they wrote in to ask for free merchendise and information about the band. Submitted by: Nixx

Funniest Song Lyrics:

"Love Like Winter"
The Funny Lyrics:
It's in the blood, it's in the blood.
I met my love before I was born...
Why They're Funny:
Really, Davey? I highly doubt that...
Submitted by: Your Worst Nightmare
"Rolling Balls"
The Funny Lyrics:
The guys won't accept me, I guess I try the girls team
And lose a part of my anatomy then balls will roll.
I think I want to be...
Balls will roll, I think it's time,
It's time for me to be a girl.
Why They're Funny:
The whole song is just greatly humorous. He talks about how pretty of a girl he'll be. Oh the joy of AFI!

Insincere Song Lyrics:

"This Time Imperfect"
The Insincere Lyrics:
I'd show a smile
but I'm too weak
I'd share with you
Could I only speak
Why They're Insincere:
It takes more muscles to smile than to frown, Davey. And if you're already singing, why can't you just sing your pain to the girl already? I know he's trying to be tragic and convey a dying soul, but really!

Personally I find the message in these lines to be mean.
Submitted by: Heather J.
"Crop Tub"
The Insulting Lyrics:
Maybe you need affection,
I'd like to help you but I can't stand when you're around:
F*** you very much.
Why They're Insulting:
It's cutting, it's scathing, it's beautiful. I think we've all felt like this at some point.

Song Lyrics That Mention Brand Name Products:

"Cereal Wars"
The Lyrics:
Get up early in the morning,
going to the store.
Post, Kellogs, General Mills?
It's the cereal war.
Fuckin' store never has the monsters and they never get more.
Post, Kellogs, General Mills?
It's the cereal war.
I hope sexual chocolate is in stock,
it's got a condom in the box.
I'll try some cocoa puffs today.
What the fuck is Sonny anyway?
Some say Dino's are the best,
they've got more marshmallows than the rest.
There's not a lot of cocoa in cocoa crispies,
and always stay away from wheaties.
Now it's dinner time and I'm going back to the store.
I had some Erkles, 'liked 'em a lot.
It's the cereal war.
I wish I were Calvin or Hobbes
and then I could try sugar bombs.
The soggies will never get Cap'n Crunch,
I guess I'll have Crunch Berries for lunch.
Breakfast cereals need to be sweet,
that's the only kind I'll eat.
Give me sugar not nuts and twigs!
Do I look like a fuckin' squirrel to you?

Foreign Language in English Songs:

"The Leaving Song, Pt. 2"
The Lyrics:
He estado aqui Muchas veces antes Y regreso...
Why:
This is Spanish for: "I've been here many times before and I return..."
Submitted by: Cabeza de Chorlito
"Love Like Winter"
The Lyrics:
Read the lines in the mirror through the lipstick tray
"Por siempre"
Why:
Por siempre means 'forever' in Spanish. AFI has a few other songs in which random Spanish is thrown about, the other one coming to my mind being "The Leaving Song Part II".
