At the Drive-In is an American rock band from El Paso, Texas, considered part of the post-hardcore genre and active from 1993 to 2001. They were known for their extremely energetic stage shows which hearkened back to the 1980s hardcore scene. They were also recognized for their blend of surrealistic lyrics, unorthodox guitar melodies and unpredictable shifts in tempo and rhythm. The band broke up following their 2000 breakthrough album Relationship of Command, with the members going on to form The Mars Volta and Sparta. At the Drive-In announced their reunion in January 2012 and are scheduled to play the 2012 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.
