Shonen Knife

Shonen Knife (Japanese: 少年ナイフ, Hepburn: Shōnen Naifu, literally "Boy Knife") is an all-female Japanese pop punk band formed in Osaka, in 1981. Heavily influenced by 1960s girl groups, pop bands, The Beach Boys, and early punk rock bands, such as the Ramones, the trio crafts stripped-down songs with simplistic lyrics sung both in Japanese and English.
