Fox Rox was a local music show that ran from 2001 - 2007 in San Diego. Here's the YouTube archive of more than 230 good-quality studio performances from bands as disparate as Electric Six, Blackalicious, Drive-By Truckers, Buzzcocks, Peaches, High on Fire, and many more. [post-mortem || myspace]

There's some good stuff in there. I do remember seeing Love is Simple (by Akron/Family) with a little Fox logo in the bottom-right, and being puzzled. And then reading the fantastic comments on whether, in fact, the song implied that love is simple. Responses ranged from "perhaps he means a different kind of simple..." to undergrad philosophy "Like I said earlier, try describing the experience of seeing "blue" to someone who has never seen color."

Oh man, Fox Rox. The host was the most amazingly HYPED OUT mid 90s MTV style dude. I remember waiting through many shows to see the performances and getting super annoyed at FUCKIN TROY JOHNSON! Though not particularly brutal, this Wolf Eyes clip is pretty good.

The Go! Team's performance is my favorite.

Love the Buzzcocks (I still remember 'Orgasm addict'); nice to see good quality vids of them.
