"The Missing Frame" is a song by American rock band AFI. It was released as the third single from their seventh studio album Decemberunderground, impacting radio on February 27, 2007.[1] The song peaked at #17 on the Alternative Songs Chart.[citation needed]

In an interview with Kerrang! magazine, Davey Havok noted that this was the only song on the album that has 'whoa's on it (seeming to forget the 'whoa's on "Prelude 12/21" and "Miss Murder"), also noting the lack of 'whoa's on their 2003 album, Sing the Sorrow.[2]

Havok describes the song as Protopunk as well as saying that the song has "some definite U2 moments to it."[2]

Music video[edit]

A music video was confirmed to be released in March 2007 by guitarist Jade Puget. However, in early June vocalist Davey Havok said that there was never a music video on the 'Ask AFI' section of the Official AFI Message Board.
