Nitro released a Greatest Hits for AFI not to long ago. I was wondering if Dexter had anything to do with it because I just can't believe that he would do something like this. Why would Nitro release it if AFI isn't even on that lable anymore.

Nitro still ownes the old songs. So they can do what they wan't with it. That's like Epitaph putting Offspringsongs in the Punk-O-Rama DVD.
AFI is bigger now after Nitro so I guess Nitro just wanted to take make use of it. Or AFI wanted to give a litte back to them, like a "thank you".

I don't know!

No Afi has been bitching about that saying it was released without their premission. Man they are such babies. I used to like them but they piss me off, they owe Nitro BIG time they wouldnt even exsist and have all their teeny bopper new fans without them

On a side note, my friend has an internship at Nitro he says Dexter hardly does anything there he just calls once in a while so i doubt it was his idea.

AFI said that they didn't OK an anthology of their Nitro albums. They aren't suing, though, since they're seeing royalties from it and they understand that Nitro has the copyright to those songs. The main reason they were a little perturbed about it is because they would rather focus on their upcoming album than put together a greatest-hits album.

As for whether or not it was Dexter's decision, I don't know. I do know that AFI had one album left on Nitro when Dexter suggested that they look into a major label.

They are very overrated. And also they suck for not even thanking Dexter or The Offspring in Sing The Sorrow like they did on Art of Drowning where they said "our dear friends, The Offspring." Offspring took them on tour and everyone knows Dexter worked his ass off to get AFI on a major record label they really owe it all to him. I bet they kept the Offspring out of their booklet so they could keep their lame little goth-emo image.


ps. I actually do like alot of their songs (Days Of The Pheonix is incredible and same with most of Black Sails), but the new CD is just "ok" and they are way overated.
