Fenix TX - Easier to change a name than a habit

Why band name Fenix TX - Vintage Cocaine AdThat this band comes from Texas (from Houston, to be exact) is evident looking at that TX. But the pop punk band was not always known by that name: it started as RiverFenix, a clear reference to the tragic character River Jude Phoenix (1970-1993).

Phoenix - a promising young actor - passed away on the morning of Halloween 1993 due to a drug overdose at the age of 23. When the band RiverFenix started to get success, the Phoenix family started to stir and Houston had a problem. Resulting in a name change.

Active: 1995-2002; 2005-present, USA
