Ask AFI about its influences and you’ll get a long answer. “We have many, many influences that span the musical spectrum,” lead singer Davey Havok tells Steve Morse of The Boston Globe. “Each of us grew up on everything from punk to hard-core to dark ’80s UK stuff like the Cure, Bauhaus, Joy Division, and Sisters of Mercy. And there were rock bands like Guns N’ Roses and Metallica and industrial bands like Skinny Puppy, Ministry, Front 242 and Alien Sex Fiend. And we all love the Smiths.”
