Top 5 Bands In Mainland China You Should Know

1. Black Panther (黑豹乐队)

Not to be confused with the famous box office superhero movie, the Black Panthers were established in 1987 and are one of the earliest and most influential pop-rock bands in China. If you want to know Chinese rock music, start with Black Panther. Ever since the band was founded, the Black Panthers have changed more than ten lead vocalists, but with the addition of lead singer Zhang Qi (张淇) they’ve created a new style and charm to this middle-aged band. The Black Panthers guided many rock and roll youths in the 1990s, and they still maintain their pure love for music now and continue to shine on stage.
