No Brain


Listen to Your Crush on Me

Powered by raw vocals, razor guitars, and sharp suits, Korea's premier punk brigadiers No Brain have notched 3,000+ shows in over 15 years to stomp up K-Pop charts and march across Korean Music Award red carpets with a series of rowdy smash hits that have become arena rock anthems.


“With an odd mix of ‘90s pop-punk and ‘80s pop-metal, a frontman charismatic enough to break through the language barrier, and the sort of cohesiveness that can only come from spending more than a decade as a band, No Brain was one of the best things we’ve seen all week [at 2013 CMW Canadian Music Week]...No Brain is basically our new favourite band.”
- The Torontoist ‘CMW 2013 What We’ve Seen So Far’

“Gangnam style will be in short supply here...Having played for 15 years, smart-dressed scenesters No Brain bring bouncy ska-punk and surf...K-Pop’s global gallop lives in them.”
- The Austin Chronicle ‘SXSW Showcase : K-Pop Night Out’
