A silent band that made big in the underground punk movement, and pushed it forward.

^^Read the above statement, as it is a perfect summary of the career of MxPx. While no one was listening, a three piece punk outfit from Bremerton, Washington were out touring their asses off, making waves in the punk scene and gathering a small but steady fan base nationwide. MxPx were the first to combine pure pop from previous generations and hardcore punk from the 80s and 90s. They pulled it off quite nicely, and though rarely anyone realizes it, they set an early example for the hardcore punk bands to follow.
MxPx, the bremerton 3 man punk crew, have been touring steadily and releasing LP's year after year after year since '93 without stop. they have inspired many current artists, whether from punk or pop. And, when most punk bands sing of things dire and depressing, MxPx has a positive outlook that is much more pleasing to listen to.
