My older sister gave me my first AFI album for my 12th birthday. It was Sing the Sorrow and it changed my life. I quickly fell in love with the music and lyrics, giving Sing the Sorrow a permanent spot in my top albums of all time. I purchased my first AFI shirt shortly after m 12th birthday and have had it ever since. One the sleeves and bottom of the shirt became too worn to continue to wear, I wanted to keep the shirt alive and have had it as a back patch ever since. This shirt patch is almost 20 years old, and is cherished more every day.
