"The Days of the Phoenix" is a song by American rock band AFI. It was the only single released from their fifth studio album The Art of Drowning in 2000.

Background[edit]

The title refers to Phoenix Theater in Petaluma, California, where the band often performed during their origins. The song itself mentions lyrics like "I fell into yesterday" and "our dreams seemed not far away," possibly references to the memories the band spent at the theater.[citation needed]

Music video[edit]

A music video directed by Marc Webb was shot in 14 Below, a music venue located in Santa Monica, California.

It features the band performing on stage in front of an excited audience. During the song's bridge, multiple versions of vocalist Davey Havok are seen quoting the bridge's lyrics, one by one.
