"Miss Murder" was released on April 24, 2006 with the U.S. release of Decemberunderground on June 6, 2006. It was the band's first US Top 40 hit in their fifteen year career and their first #1 on the Modern Rock chart. The song ranked at #15 on Rolling Stone's "The 100 Best songs of 2006". The song also appeared at the end of the movie My Super Psycho Sweet Sixteen. This song also features a director's cut version which is an extent of the song from the beginning to the where the bass guitar begins playing. Japanese pop-singer Kyosuke Himuro covered "Miss Murder" on the album In the Mood. A cover of this song, along with 4 other versions of this song was included in the video game Battle of the Bands. ABOUT THE MUSIC VIDEO: The "director's cut" music video begins with Prelude 12/21. A woman sits on a settee and writes a note during the instrumental beginning. Davey Havok begins singing, eyes closed and hands folded, opening his eyes on the first "sleep" of the verse. The rest of the band is seen entering a large circular hall and setting up their instruments. Havok is sitting at a table, singing to the camera. At the end of Prelude 12/21, the woman, whose face cannot be seen, eats the note. Havok pulls it out of his mouth, reads it, and looks up to sing Miss Murder. As he sings, he walks out of the room and stands on a balcony in front of a huge crowd. The video cuts between him and the woman walking, holding a black rabbit. When the woman enters the courtyard, Havok sees her and there are shots of him inside, facing a mirror. A rabbit comes close to the chair, and he picks it up. There is another shot of him outside, with four banners featuring the members of the band on the wall. At the very end, he is facing the mirror again and the woman, presumably "Miss Murder," touches the back of his neck and he closes his eyes again. The last shot is of the rabbit.

Miss Murder - AFI

Hey Miss Murder can I
Hey Miss Murder can I
Make beauty stay if I
Take my life? Whoa oh oh

With just a look
They shook
And heavens bowed before him
Simply a look
Can break
Your heart.

The stars that pierce the sky
He left them all behind
We're left to wonder why
He left us all... Behind

Hey Miss Murder can I
Hey Miss Murder can I
Make beauty stay if I
Take my life? (Whoa oh oh)

Dreams of his crash
Won't pass
Oh how they all adored him
Beauty will last
When spiraled
Down.

The stars that mystify
He left them all behind
And how his children cried
He left us all... Behind

Hey Miss Murder can I
Hey Miss Murder can I
Make beauty stay if I
Take my life? Whoa oh oh

What's the hook, the twist within this verbose mystery?
I would gladly bet my life upon it
That the ghost you love, your ray of light will fizzle out
Without hope, hope. We're the empty set just floating through wrapped, in skin,
Ever searching for what we were promised
Reaching for that golden ring we'd never let go...
Who would ever let us put our filthy hands upon it?

Hey Miss Murder can I
Hey Miss Murder can I
Make beauty stay if I
Take my life? (Whoa oh oh)

Hey Miss Murder can I
Hey Miss Murder can I
Make beauty stay if I
Take my life? (Whoa oh)
