Here's a bit about the band from Wikipedia:
"X is an American punk band from the first wave of American punk rock, formed in Los Angeles in 1977. While they achieved only limited mainstream success, they were widely considered one of the most influential, accessible and tuneful of Los Angeles' many punk bands. Their 1980 record Los Angeles resonated so loudly with the citizens of the city that it is named after, that the band received an Official Certificate of Recognition from the City of Los Angeles in acknowledgment of their important contributions to Los Angeles music and culture.[3They were hugely influential on various genres of music, including punk, hardcore punk, and folk.
Original members were Exene Cervenka (born Christine Cervenka, vocals), John Doe (born John Duchac, bass and vocals), Billy Zoom (born Tyson Kindell, guitar) and DJ Bonebrake (born Donald J. Bonebrake, drums). After Zoom retired from the band, Tony Gilkyson replaced him on guitar. Zoom reunited with X in 1998. The original line-up tours after having reunited in the early 2000s.
