AFI is an American Punk Rock band. AFI was formed in 1991 when the members got bored in between skate sessions. The meaning of the initials "AFI" is A Fire Inside. AFI was nominated in the MTV Video Music Awards 2003 in the MTV2 award category for the video "Girl's Not Grey", which came to be the first VMA they won. Their latest album is Crash Love Crash.
In 2004, AFI recorded two cover songs: The Cure's "Just Like Heaven" for the MTV Icon television show and Nine Inch Nails' "Head Like A Hole" for the Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas soundtrack: this song appears only as the bonus track in the 2-disc set and is not present in the game.
Guests on AFI's new album include Nick 13, members of Throwdown, Day Of Contempt, Eighteen Visions and Bleeding Through, as well as some electronic programming from Ronan of VNV Nation.
