你好!
Hi! I really like punk rock and pop-punk music but I haven't heard any punk songs in Chinese language.
Is there in this forum any Chinese people who has the same taste of music?
Could you tell me some good Chinese punk rock or pop-punk bands.

Fahrenheit, 飞轮海, or fei lun hai.


I don't know if you consider it "punk" but it is definitely "pop."

They are my favorite!spinning smiley sticking its tongue out

not every rock band plays punk music.
punk is popular in taiwan. i think. like May Day(we called 五月天),i think its style is punk. not bad, but not very good.
i like rock music,too.
but almost all the younger chinese is interested in heavy metal.you know Tang dynasty(a band name,唐朝)? and cold blood animal(冷血动物)?and Hedgehog(刺猬乐队)? and almost every college has its own rock band, and their styles are various.
if you are interested in chinese rock music, try typing"迷笛音乐节" in google or in youtube,or typing "Beijing MIdi music festival". this music festival is almost the top in china rock, like "woodstock" in the US. a lot of famous bands have sung on the stage in MIDI.

Very few mainland Chinese young people outside of Beijing & Shanghai like anything except Pop... Even most of the rock in China is actually pop.

That said Hedgehog is great! The other two I haven't heard yet, will go look for them!

Other good rock bands I've found in Beijing are Carsick Cars, PK47 and Joyside, White (I think that was the name...) and one other which I forget... something like Myself Without Me or something.. There's also a great CD out called simply Beijing Punk which has some good songs as well as some covers of Western Punk songs.

For anyone in Beijing there is a great independent label in WuDaoKou that is run by the owner of D22 (a live music venue). Some great Punk/Rock/Pop-Punk there.

Punk and Rock is just growing in Mainland China now so hopefully it gets better and better!

I think the best mainland punk band is Hang On The Box. They certainly sound the most punk from what I've found:

Hang On The Box

emmmmm
china's underground bands are no less than those in the US.
so many... so that different regions have their own favorite bands.
but they are not running in commercial forms, most of them are underground.
rock music is still weaker than pop music in china mainland.

If we're talking modern music than China has nothing even close to the US's underground scene. It's growing here but still has a long way to go.

if you're in China, Beijing. you must go to the modern sky music festival each oct since 2007 or Midi music festival. Many chinese punk bands or pop punk bands like New Pants, Rebuilding The Rights Of Statues, P.K. 14, Queen Sea Big Shark, Joyside etc will appear there. really cool.

For those interested, especially those around Beijing Car Sick Cars is putting out a new album this weekend! release party as well but I forget where... If anyone is interested let me know and I'll find out where for you.

Not sure if it's exactly punk but still good rock anyway.
