Jawbox was a post-hardcore band which formed in 1989 in Washington D.C., United States. The band consisted of J Robbins (vocals, guitar), Bill Barbot (guitar), Kim Coletta (bass) and Adam Wade (drums). The band split in 1997. In their eight-year existence, Jawbox released four studio albums of increasingly skillful post-punk, not necessarily carrying the torch of their Washington DC, elders (Minor Threat, Embrace, Rites of Spring), but instead building on the tradition of Chicago's thriving early-'80s scene (Big Black, Naked Raygun, Effigies).

- LyricsHey angel, consider your position
Afraid to be consumed
Savory, your sympathy
Hey angel, fly over and bless me
- LyricsA minute, a second
A half-life, a minus
A segment, a blinder
It's secession time
- LyricsTaking division down to where I shouldn't be
Turn pockets run aground in the green
New way to see what's laid plain in front of me
Nothing better than a look at what I shouldn't see
When you examined the wreck, what did you see?
- LyricsHe invites the storm
He lives by instinct
With fears that are not fears
But prickles of ecstasy
This code is cracked
- LyricsFear as friend I wish I'd never kissed;
faded hand to mouth as catalyst.
Technicolored static sender,
secondguess my love for danger.
Bold-face it with a hand of 10 by 10.
