About Static-X

An industrial-metal band that has released seven albums, Static-X is best remembered for founder and late frontman Wayne Static.

∙ Before forming Static-X in 1994, Wayne Static spent the late ’80s in the Chicago rock band Deep Blue Dream, alongside future Smashing Pumpkins founder Billy Corgan.
Wisconsin Death Trip, the group’s 1999 debut LP, reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Heatseekers chart before going Platinum.
∙ Static-X’s breakthrough single and biggest hit, 1999’s “Push It,” popularized their self-described “evil disco” sound.
∙ On the 2000 rap-metal compilation Loud Rocks, the band teamed with hip-hop duo Dead Prez for an alternate version of the latter's 1999 breakout single, “Hip Hop.”
∙ Their Gold-certified second album, 2001’s Machine, debuted at No. 11 on the Billboard 200 and remains their highest charting release.
∙ After reuniting in 2018, Static-X released a comeback LP, 2020’s Project Regeneration, Vol. 1, with posthumous vocals by Wayne Static and a guest appearance by Ministry’s Al Jourgensen.
