Wax was a Los Angeles-based punk-pop band in the early 1990s. They released two albums in their initial four-year run: 1992's What Else Can We Do and 1995's 13 Unlucky Numbers. The latter contained "California," a minor hit. Wax and Weezer were closely associated in the early 1990s and regularly attended each other's live shows.

BMF/Weezer/El Mag ... 3 bands, who along with Wax defined the mini-scene that weezer was a part of then, trying to forge a non-hair band -yet- non-grunge scene.

Weezer played "Conversationalist" live at a handful of shows in 1992. This was a reworked version of Wax's song "So Much Talk." Wax Guitarist Tom Gardocki had previously been in the band Bush with Patrick Wilson.

Wax reunited in 2009, with a new bass player, to open a Weezer show at the Palladium on October 24. Knoxville introduced the band.
