I promised to limit myself to one cover of The Cure during ‘Cover Song Month’.
AFI is a talented band full of great guys. Not to name drop or anything, but I’ve met them on a few occasions. The best one was when I was trying to interview Simple Plan and the guys from AFI was in the same room poking fun at them for their height.
What makes AFI’s cover of The Cure’s “Just Like Heaven” great is that they did it in front of Robert Smith. They must have been crazy nervous before their performance.
