Weekend Discussion: Favorite Music Video

We've decided to step away from the concept of albums and this week have our Weekend Discussion about what your favorite AFI music video is.

Was Silver and Cold's bizzare ending a great visual masterpiece or was Toalimmortal and Medicate's black and white montage the icing on the cake? Did The Leaving Song Pt. II capture an AFI show perfectly or did Miss Murder's deathly demeanor seduce you?

What about Davey's kidnap and murder on He Who Laughs Last? Or the skating teens of Third Season? And the Girl's Not Grey bunny entering to Jade's crotch world? Was there enough snow in Love Like Winter?

Let us know but back up your claim. We think this will be a fun discussion. Vote for your favorite in the new poll to the left.

  4. My favorite is TLSP2. Something about it is just so... captivating and majestic. I also very much enjoy the Miss Murder video for that reason. And third favorite would have to be Silver and Cold.

  7. Did you add The Missing Frame? Haha!My favorite videos come down to Silver & Cold and The Days of the Phoenix, but DOTP wins that matchup. The bridge is so well done.

  8. 1. Love Like WinterBest Cinematography in any video ever for me. Band shots were unique and really well done, likewise, the story shots were put together really well to help the "story" flow. And the timing between the song and the story in incredible.2. Girls Not GreyDoes anything actually need to be said for it?3. Leaving Song Pt 2AFI playing a one of the most badass songs ever written. But in tuxes. What the hell else do you want?

  16. I played Miss Murder on guitar hero in 2007 and one day i wanted to know the band that played that song.When i saw davey with that hair i thought :man, this is different of anything and i watched the video, so Miss Murder is the video that show me who is AFI and show me what was the thing that would make me crazy for the rest of my life.I love AFI and i am a Miss Murder lover. I I Think that Miss Murder has the best direction by Marc Webb and they got a perfect place for filming.I love the ending of miss murder and how davey is important in the video story.Anyway Miss Murder is the best video for me and i really like the other videos. The only video that i dont like is he who laughs last. I Think they could do something better just like third season.I Think they should do more videos.In 20 years of carrer they just have 10 videos or 11.I think more videos would be great.

  25. Wow, this is really hard.Love Like Winter is my favorite visually.The Leaving Song Part 2 is such an intense video, and Miss Murder is very dramatic and interesting. I cannot decide!

    ReplyDelete
  26. My tops:The GNG "prelude" video hypnotizes me every time. Where they're all done up black, just performing...LLW is just visually stunning all around.Silver and Cold, for personal reasons as well as the storyline.

  32. All Marc Webb's AFI vids were amazing, but I'd have to say The Days Of The Pheonix, Love Like Winter and Silver And Cold (in no particular order)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Miss Murder. Sure the other videos are AMAZING but I'll always have an affinity for this because its how I discovered AFI.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Silver and Cold.Love everything about that video :-)So whats that 12.28.09 about????

    ReplyDelete
  35. i NEED to know what happens on the 28th. if its something lame, itll kill me. im hoping for the new video. maybe df will get a sneek peek or something

    ReplyDelete
  36. OH, its a video on their youtube page. it looks like a mystery of sorts. hmmm.

    ReplyDelete
  37. By the look of the video, could it be anything to do with under the rose?

    ReplyDelete
  38. I reckon medicate is the best. Its different to what they have done and the look of it is radd!!!

  39. Hands down, I'd say Silver and Cold is my absolute favorite, but all of the STS era videos were fabulous. Silver and Cold takes the cake, though, because it's just so haunting and unresolved which is something I'm always drawn to. I don't know that they've made a video since that has really captured that intrigue. I'm hoping that Beautiful Thieves will restore some of my faith in their video making, Medicate really let me down (it was nice to look at but not complex enough).
