Emo punk-rock heroes A.F.I. have managed to knock countrified poppers the Dixie Chicks from their perch by taking the top spot on the American music charts with their epic new album 'Decemberunderground'. The album is the seventh for the emo-goth group and ended a disappointing two week stint at the top of the charts for the Chicks.
"It's an amazing feeling to have something you believe in so strongly, that is so much a part of you, touch so many people," said A.F.I. frontman Davey Havok. "But it was truly our fans that did this. They have brought us this recognition, and we are deeply honored. I am truly elated not just for us but for them as well."
