Bio

A great deal of controversy has followed Group X since their inauguration in 1997. In addition to their renowned live show, endowed with a variety of outrageous costuming and theatrics, syncopated dances, and the event of being able to play their own cover interpretation of any song ever written, as requested by the audience, the great debate remains in the unraveling the true identity of the band's members. In 1999 they were awarded 1st runner up in Conan O'Brien's college band search and were featured on the NBC website. An animated video for their song 'Mario Twins' (a skit and rendition of the Mario Brothers video game) is one of the most well known flash productions on the internet.

Group X has been spreading over the internet like a disease for the last four years. The addictive and unique nature of the band's music led to a nearly exponential rate of growth through word of mouth, as can be evidence from the rash of articles and pages that come up by googling the band's name. Numerous flash animation videos (for tracks such as 'Bang Bang Bang,' 'Schfifty Five' and 'Mario Twins' (over 1 million views) have been made by inspired fans without any prompting from Group X itself. These videos have served to bring thousands of new GX fans on board, being some of the most popular videos ever on the net, including legendary status at newgrounds.com. The 'Mario Twins' animation was even featured on a 30x20 foot screen in downtown New York at a Flash convention. Between mp3.com and file sharing programs Group X has amassed a ridiculous number of downloads, maintaining the number one spot on the Mp3.com comedy charts for many months. Amongst all this internet hype, Group X has been able to keep a steadily growing rate of CD sales through their website alone, while railing in nearly 750,000 unique visits per month.
