The Art of Drowning is the fifth studio album by American rock band AFI. It was released on September 19, 2000, through Nitro Records. Between June and August 2001, the group performed on the Warped Tour. The album was listed by Alternative Press as one of the ten most-influential punk albums of the year 2000. The album was included in Rock Sound's 101 Modern Classics list at number 40.

The Art of Drowning also features AFI's first use of electronic music in the beginning of "The Despair Factor". The track eventually inspired the name of the band's official fan club, The Despair Faction. Wester (river) in North Rhine-Westphalia, GermanyOtherWester, a song from The Art of Drowning (album) by American punk rock band AFI.

That album is considered by a portion (albeit a smaller one) of Afi's fan base to be their finest hour. Their peak of perfection. That album is known as The Art of Drowning. Released in 2000, a mere year after Black Sails in the Sunset, it's easy to see why The Art of Drowning is oftentimes overlooked in favor of its older brother. At this time in Afi's life, fans were still surprised by how much the music had began to change

Punk rawkers AFI exude another powerful disposition on their fifth album, The Art of Drowning. Issued on Dexter Holland's Nitro Records, AFI's quick and haughty, spiraling guitar riffs and crashing percussion make for another mishmash for single-fisted anthems for punk revivalists and enigmatic pop kids raging against the machine. Nothing short of Pennywise, D Generation, and Powerman 5000, AFI is rowdy with their old-school-inspired rants like "Ever and a Day" and "Of Greetings and Goodbyes.

The Art of Drowning is a book of poetry by the American Poet Laureate Billy Collins, first published in 1995. John Updike described the collection as "Lovely poems-lovely in a way almost nobody's since Roethke's are. Limpid, gently and consistently startling, more serious than they seem, they describe all the worlds that are and were and some others besides. The title poem is the 11th poem in the collection, and it describes a man who reflects on the course of his life while he is drowning.
