Pokinatcha is the debut studio album by the punk rock band MxPx released on October 4, 1994, through Tooth & Nail Records.[2] The album is composed of influence from skate/surf punk and punk underground. The album's name came from a Snicker's candy bar commercial, saying hunger is, "Poking at you". The songs are characterized by their raw punk sound, catchy rhythm, and classic punk three-chord guitar style. It was the only album to include original guitarist Andy Husted.[3][4]
