Jawbreaker

Independently minded and adhering to the old-school D.I.Y. punk mentality, West Coast punk-pop trio Jawbreaker's street-smart -- yet poetic -- lyrics, spirited musicality, and marathon live shows put them a cut above contemporaries like Green Day and blink-182. After a series of EPs and singles, guitarist/singer Blake Schwarzenbach, bassist Chris Bauermeister, and drummer Adam Pfahler released the band's debut album, Unfun, in 1989. Independent label San Francisco Tupelo/Communion signed the group the following year, releasing Bivouac in 1991 and their breakthrough record, 24 Hour Revenge Therapy, in 1993.

As 1995 saw the first in a three-record deal with DGC, fans were split over the band's newfound success and move to a major label. But Jawbreaker were undeterred, releasing the influential Dear You, a powerhouse collection of punk, grunge, and emo that paved the way for groups like Jimmy Eat World and Dashboard Confessional. Sadly, the group disbanded in the late-'90s, leaving 2002's Etc., a collection of all of the group's non-album material, as their last will and testament. Dear You was reissued by Blackball in 2004. ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi

I want so badly to enjoy Jawbreaker, but the vocalist sounds so strainy.
Like he's singing in pain.

Jinx Removing is so early Clash at their best, with a killer drummer. I'm old and had never heard these guys, so good to hear the real thing when it's new.

One of my favorite SF/Oakland bands from the 90's is starting to become popular with hipsters. Actually, with this I now can say most of teen life experience should now be reclassified hipster right down to my old 5&Dime UFO.

So is that rumor about them getting back together, hope its true!

Uh...jets to Brazil was awful? Perhaps listen again. Or better yet just Google their song lyrics. F*in poetry.

Saw them when i was 15 at the Troc in phl...only really planned to go because Samiam was headlining. Thank god i did cuz they broke up before touring again....my love affair with this band started at that show.

Anyone dogging Jimmy Eat World obviously didn't listen to them in the 90's. Static Prevails and Clarity are super good records.

I wish more amazing bands like this were still around, but there will never be another jawbreaker!

This band is amazing. Dear You was ahead of it's time...

"Paved the way" in the same sense that The Beatles could be said to have paved the way for Starland Vocal Band. Jawbreaker, I love you so much.

Unfun was a great piece of music. Always smile when one of the songs shows up on my rotation.

Meh, prolly just hastily written review. Besides, he never explicitly compares them to any other band.

A pretty big swing and a miss with the selection of bands that you have compared Jawbreaker to and of bands they have influenced.

This is kind of a garbage band. Pop-punk as a whole is totally s**tty. The only thing that comes close to saving this band is their lyrics. Everything else is dumb.

Ah, Jawbreaker. F**king love the song "Kiss the Bottle".

Actually Thorn of Life was short lived, and over. Check out the forgetters, it's black and a new couple of people, the music is raw like old jawbreaker, and the lyrics are just as poignant as ever

Kiss the Bottle is a great song fro drinking alone.
