Taiyouzoku was a popular punk rock band from Japan. Formed in 1996, the band reached its peak of popularity in 2003 and
2004, when their albums released in that time-frame both broke the Oricon top 10, and three of their singles broke the Oricon
top 20 as well around this time. Their popularity quickly diminished by 2005, however, and the group remained virtually an
underground band until their inevitable disbandment in 2012.
