    MxPx started as three 15-year-old kids calling themselves Magnified Plaid playing music inspired by and similar to The Descendents, NOFX and other Southern California skate-punk bands. The trio were classmates at Central Kitsap High School in nearby Silverdale, WA. However, the name which was a tribute to the original guitarist's fascination with plaid shirts didn't fit on the band's posters. Consequently, the name was abbreviated to M.P., but in Yuri Ruley's handwriting, periods become "X"'s and since he made up the show posters for the band, the four-letter moniker stuck.[citation needed]

    MxPx caught the attention of Tooth & Nail Records when they played a "showcase" for the label in 1993 in Herrera's parents' back yard. Mike Herrera had practiced so much before the first show, he lost his voice.[citation needed] Their first major album, Pokinatcha (1994), was released while the band was still in high school.[2]

    MxPx released two further albums with Tooth & Nail, Teenage Politics in 1995, and Life in General in 1996. They then received a major distribution deal with A&M Records. After the re-release of Life In General, MxPx released two more studio albums jointly distributed with Tooth & Nail and A&M: Slowly Going the Way of the Buffalo in 1998, and The Ever Passing Moment in 2000. MxPx had fulfilled their contract obligations and decided to part ways with Tooth & Nail. Before Everything & After in 2003 was released exclusively by A&M. In 2005, MxPx dropped A&M and signed with SideOneDummy Records and released their seventh full-length album Panic. In 2006, MxPx came out with Let's Rock, a b-sides compilation album released by SideOneDummy, and Let it Happen deluxe edition, a Tooth and Nail Records re-release of Let it Happen with new songs and a DVD of their music videos.

    In September 2006, MxPx and the City of Bremerton started a marketing effort revolving around the band's song "Move to Bremerton". Bremerton's Community Renewal Agency secured rights for the song to be played in a promotional website for the city, and MxPx played a concert at the downtown Admiral Theatre on September 16, 2006 with local bands The Divorce and Ruxton Towers. The band was also given keys to the city by Mayor Cary Bozeman, in recognition of their contributions to Bremerton. [3][2]

    MxPx spent the majority of 2005 and 2006 touring in support of their 7th album Panic. MxPx spent early 2007 on an international tour through parts of Australia and Europe.

    In February 2007, MxPx began recording their 8th album, tentatively titled Secret Weapon, which is due for release on July 17 on Tooth & Nail Records.[4] The title song can be heard on the band's official myspace page and on PureVolume.

    Let's Rock, MxPx's brand new rarities album, was released on Side One Dummy Records on October 24, 2006. The album consists of many previously unreleased songs, re-recorded b-sides and acoustic demos. A new full-length album from their side project Arthur is slated for a 2007 release.

    On November 21, 2006, Tooth & Nail Records re-released "Let It Happen Deluxe Edition" with a bonus DVD featuring 12 music videos, new artwork and photographs and some other goodies.
