During their eight-year existence, Jawbox developed into a top-tier post-hardcore band. While they became one of the most notable acts in Washington, D.C. shortly after their late-'80s formation, and were part of a lineage that included the likes of Minor Threat and Rites of Spring, they were favorably compared to Chicago's Big Black, Naked Raygun, and Effigies as well. Scrutinized for leaving D.C.'s beloved Dischord for a major label - they were the first to do so - Jawbox nonetheless released two excellent albums for Atlantic that surpassed their previous output. The band decided to split in 1997 and during the 2000s each member kept busy with their own project, before announcing a reunion in 2019.
