The Neighbourhood (sometimes rendered as "THE NBHD") is an American rock band formed in Newbury Park, California in 2011. The band is composed of vocalist Jesse Rutherford, guitarists Jeremy Freedman and Zach Abels, bassist Mikey Margott, and drummer Brandon Alexander Fried. After releasing three EPs, I'm Sorry..., The Love Collection and Thank You, The Neighbourhood released their first full-length album, I Love You., on April 23, 2013, via Columbia Records. In November 2014, they released a mixtape titled #000000 & #FFFFFF. The band's second album, Wiped Out!, was released in October 2015.

"Afraid" is a song by American rock group The Neighbourhood. The song was written by group members Jesse Rutherford, Zach Abels and Jeremy Freedman, and was produced by Justyn Pilbrow and Emile Haynie. It serves as the second single to their debut studio album, I Love You, which was released on April 19, 2013 via Columbia Records.

The lyrics of "Afraid" can be interpreted in many ways, but it mainly deals with anxiety and depression, hence the lyrics in the hook/chorus "When I wake up, I'm afraid / Somebody else might take my place". The song has been praised by Billboard for its "edgy, subtle hooks". The song was featured in an episode of the television show "The Vampire Diaries".

A music video, directed by Ends, was released for the song on October 17, 2013, both in edited and explicit/uncut versions.  In the video's premise, lead singer Rutherford was shown in past (teen) and present forms. Rutherford himself was naked throughout much of the video to express his vulnerability and fears, also the eyelids show the different perspectives of everyone in the band, from writing the songs, to playing basketball. The video also incorporated a part of OG Ron C's 'Chopped Not Slopped' remix in the middle of it.
