Despite never breaking into mainstream audiences, Pixies is recognized as one of the influential American bands to emerge out of the late 1980s alternative rock scene. Since the release of its debut album Come On Pilgrim, in 1987, the group has used its strong punk and indie rock-sensibility to forge its own brand of rock music. After surviving a breakup in 1993 and returning in 2004, Pixies is still widely credited for pioneering the rapid rise of grunge and alternative rock in the 1990s.
