The four boys of Belgium's youngest punk rock band write their own songs, play their own instruments and represented their country at the 2003 Junior Eurovision Song Contest. They finished 6th with their song "De Vriendschapsband".
The band consists of two pairs of brothers, Jonas Meukens (b. 1989), Niels Meukens (b. 1991), Thomas Valkeniers (b. 1991) and Philip Valkeniers (b. 1993). 13-year-old Jonas is the lead singer.
In the following years X!nk continued with a very succesful carreer, issuing single after single. They were the youngest artists ever to perform on stage at Markrock, one of the most popular rock festivals in Belgium and obtained a very devoted and still growing fan base all across the world.
Over the years their sound has toughened and as the band members aged, it became a lot more 'punk'. But they never lost that distinctive 'X!nk sound'.
Four years after their victory in the very first Belgian Junior Eurosong preselections, X!nk was asked to return. This time not as contenders in the contest, but to compose the theme song.
