I would *LOVE* to see Miss Murder show up on DLC. I air drum to that song in my car all the time. It's an all around good energy song! :D

Other awesome A.F.I. songs:

Silver and Cold
Dancing Through Sunday
This Celluloid Dream
Love Like Winter

    I'm with you on Dancing Through Sunday. That song is very high energy and has a rocking guitar lead.

    But anything else this band has released after Art of Drowning is just....no...

    Not Miss Murder...or anything off of Decemberunderground...that was just so overplayed.

    Dancing Through Sunday would be pretty sweet though. This Celluloid Dream would take forevvvvver to play.

    Decemberunderground was awesome. People don't like it's different then all the other AFI stuff, but that's what they do; they re-invent themselves every album. But I would havw to say no for Miss Murder, it was very overplayed and not one of their best songs. I would like a 6 pack with a little new and a little old:

    Days of the Phoenix
    Carcinogen Crush
    The Missing Frame
    The Leaving Song Pt. 2
    Girl's Not Grey
    God Called in Sick Today (Rock Band doesn't have any slow songs, so this would be unique)

    1)There's not any old AFI in there, really. Though I guess All Hallows and Drowning kinda are. It's really bizarre for me to think of those albums as "old" though.
    2)I dislike decemberunderground (and sing the sorrow) because they're terrible, not because they "reinvented" themselves. They've changed their sound a little several times, but it wasn't until sing the sorrow that they changed it to crap, and they've only gotten worse since.
    3)I would have to say that Wanted: Dead or Alive as well as Moonage Daydream are pretty slow songs, not that God Called in Sick isn't possibly slower.

    And despite my complaints, Days of the Pheonix, Leaving Song Pt. 2, Girls Not Grey, and God Called in Sick are all at least okay songs, and I would likely get them. But still, Dancing through Sunday > the rest of that album combined.

    Well, I didn't put any of their even older stuff because it would be impossible to match Davey's vocals in that and the songs that I picked are for the most part mainstream so more people will be familiar with them and purchase them. :)

    And by the way, I can't stand people thatcomplain when band's change their sound or style. So please stop.

    I was trying to make the point though that I'm not complaining about them changing their sound.

    They changed their sound dramatically between Answer that and Stay Fashionable (their first full album) and Art of Drowning (their fifth full album), but I don't have any complaints about that because there's good work on both those albums.

    I don't like there two more recent albums because I feel their work isn't up to the level of quality I've come to expect from A.F.I. It has little to do with their sound changing.

    Firstly, I can't stand people that say they "hate" new AFI. K, we get it, you think their new stuff hates, you don't actually have to post it. Seriously though, no Miss Murder since that's already on Guitar Hero and it is a pretty easy song to play. I'd go with:

    Girls Not Grey
    The Missing Frame
    Carcinogen Crush
    Days of The Pheonix
    God Called in Sick Today (does that song have enoguh drums?)
    And a little bonus song- The Chicken Song!

    Ok, look, the truth is Miss Murder is overplayed and borderline annoying now. I just didn't want to post that because I was giving people hell for saying they don't like new AFI stuff lol. But I liked the song when it came out, really, just too overplayed now.

    See, you say that, and that's your opinion, so it's all good.
    In my, and others, opinions, Sing the Sorrow is their best album, and I really don't like much of their stuff prior to. Several random songs, sure.
    And Decemberunderground is O.K. There are a few nice songs on there, but it's rather bland.

    But, just take a look at my last.fm page and you'll see I like me my AFI. :P
    Or, at least, there was a period of time during which they were all I listened to, lol.

    No no no no no. I can't say it enough. I hate A.F.I. I hate MCR, I hate any bands associated with that genre. They seem incapable of making a difficult or intricuite piece of music. Even one that is pleasing to listen to. Plus they are not known for their skills in any area (drums, guitar, vocals, bass). It is likely that it would just be boring to play.

    *cough MCR and AFI both on GH3, both fun to play cough*

    You sound like my brother when it comes to graphic design. If it doesn't take him 129483948 hours to make, it's garbage. It could be the coolest looking thing in the world, it's still garbage because it was "easy".
    Good music does not need to be hard to play, and whether or not a song is pleasing to listen to is a matter of opinion.

    I understand what you're saying. I've found myself trying to decide recently if AFI's music was as complex as the other bands I listen to and whether complexity of music really makes it better or not. That's not what bothered me about your post.

    The fact that you, for some odd reason, related AFI and MCR together, now that bothered me. They aren't the same genre, they are nothing alike, so why put them together like that? I think that showed how uneducated, music-wise, you were. You really have no idea what genre either of those bands are and you place them together for what reason? Both lead singers wear eyeliner and have feminine voices. Congrats, you just proved yourself to be a moron.

    Listen to Brownie Bottom Sundae and tell me that bassline isn't complicated.
    Listen to Morningstar and tell me those vocals aren't complicated.
    Listen to Battled and tell me those drums aren't complicated.
    Listen to Dancing Through Sunday and tell me the guitar isn't complicated.

    Not every song by them is "amazingly hard or complicated", yet some of their choice songs ARE complicated. So make your opinion, but please, base an opinion on things you can back up, otherwise you're just a moron.

    Those are the AFI songs I would think that would be best for Rock Band in my opinion :)

    I kinda left out songs like Malleus Maleficarum or other older good suited songs because it might be a little hard for the vocal pitches with Davey's yelling. :p

    As much as people seem to dislike Decemberundergound (which I absolutely love) I think we can all admit that the songs on that album are really perfectly suited for Rock Band and they would all be fun to play, right? So having an AFI pack without any Decemberunderground songs would just be silly, in my opinion.

    From DU, "Endlessly, She said" would be my best pick for a song if I had to choose one. "The Interview", "The Missing Frame" and "Summer Shudder" would all also be good picks.

    Although DecemberUnderground is a great CD (if you're into popish-sounding rock.), Sing The Sorrow or The Art of Drowning have better songs suited for Rock Band, as they have more of a "I want to play THIS song in front of thousands of people next to my best friends" feel.
  • Crooked CarrotCrooked Carrot Rising Star
    edited June 2008
    I guess that makes sense, but I still feel that Decemberunderground, being a bit more mainstream radio-friendly CD has songs that are more suited for Rock Band just because the songs on Rock Band are pretty normal straightforward rock/alt rock songs. But I really do want those really epic, emotional AFI songs like God Called in Sick Today or Total Immortal.

    If you took one from Decemberunderground, it'd have to be The Killing Lights; it has a great guitar focus on it, and a decent solo aswell.
