They released two full-length albums before disbanding in 1995,partly due to Reis' increased involvement with his other band, Rocket From the Crypt. The success of Rocket From the Crypt and of Reis andFroberg's later band Hot Snakes has drawn increased attention to their work in Drive Like Jehu and led to a re-release of their influential albumYank Crime. Posthumously, Drive Like Jehu's music has been cited as a catalyst for the reemergence of emocore and for the prolific San Diegomusic scene of the 1990s. « hide
