In the late 70s, the L.A. punk scene saw its share of greatness, but few acts were as talented, and as long lived, as the now world-class, live, rock & roll band X. Over the years, the band has released several critically acclaimed albums, topped the musical charts with regularity and performed their iconic hits on top television shows such as Letterman and American Bandstand. Two of their legendary albums, Los Angeles and Wild Gift, appear on Rolling Stone's Top 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
