Jawbreaker are a cult-favorite American punk rock band that emerged in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Known for their melodic hooks, emotional lyrics, and raw energy, Jawbreaker combined the DIY ethos of hardcore punk with the pop sensibilities of college rock and indie rock. The band's frontman, Blake Schwarzenbach, is widely regarded as one of the most influential and poetic songwriters of his generation, crafting honest and heartfelt songs that resonated with fans and critics alike.
The band's music is marked by Schwarzenbach's distinctive raspy voice, which he often strained to the point of bleeding, and his clever and witty wordplay, which he used to express his personal struggles with relationships, identity, and depression. Jawbreaker's sound evolved throughout their four studio albums, from the fast and furious punk of Unfun and Bivouac to the more polished and melodic rock of 24-Hour Revenge Therapy and Dear You.
The latter album, released in 1995, was a major departure from the band's previous style, featuring cleaner production, softer vocals, and more pop-oriented songs. The album divided the band's fanbase and led to their breakup in 1996. However, it has since been recognized as a masterpiece and a landmark in alternative rock history.
