Yes there are bands that start with the letter X--but either I don't like them, don't like enough songs of theirs, are unfamiliar with them, or never hard them--so I altered the criteria (Hey, it's my list & thing going through the alphabet)
So I may have left off something I forgot about, so let me know.

As always this is my list--in alphabetical order--feel free to disagree completely.
And if you post your own list--it can be in any order you like.

999-X-pensive Winos
As Wicked as it Seems-X-pensive Winos
Big Picture-Crystavox
Cry Out-Crystavox
Making Plans for Nigel- XTC
Politicalamity-Extreme
Paradise-Crystavox
Rest in Peace-Extreme
Take it so Hard-X-pensive Winos
Technical Difficulties-Racer X

I wasn't counting the Jimi Hendrix Experience as the band name is his name essentially--and then the whole list would be Jimi.

But if you want to include him--go for it.

I never got into X or Roxy Music--but I know some people do--so cool...

Thanks for responding.

Even by himself he's got an "x" in his name.

I only put up one by him for that reason ... it's like a golf handicap, he's too good and you gotta take a lot off to level the playing field.

X did some good shit. They're one of my favorite punk bands, not that I'm a big fan of that style.

Roxy Music was a bit cloying for my taste, but I do like LitD.

Besides the mentioned Jimi Hendrix issue, Racer X is the only band I would've been able to think of. Paul Gilbert was my first major inspiration on guitar. :D
