Golden Bomber was created in 2004 aroundShô KIRYUIN and Yutaka KYAN. Thanks to the offbeat stage performances of the members and the most uncommon songs of Shô KIRYUIN, Golden Bomber becomes the most popular air-band (yeah, none of the members play his instrument) in Japan.

2009 is the year of the concept mini-album: Imitation Gold Kinbaku no meikyoku nibandukuri. This album, totally unique, was broadcast on several radio channels and on the Internet where it makes a real buzz.
The same year in June, Golden Bomber signs the end theme of the game Skip Beat released on PS2 (from the Shôjo Manga Skip Beat) with the title Time Machine ga hoshiiyo. In July, they played, directed, wrote, filmed and made their own movie Sorinokoshita Natsu released in cinemas and DVD, as well as a single of the same name to celebrate the event.
On October 21, 2009, Golden Bomber enters the 77th place of the top Oricon (4th independent band) with the single Memeshikute, which you can listen to right now:
