Can a bulldozer be an instrument?

This is the story of a genre-pushing noise and punk band Hanatarash that formed in Japan in the 1980’s.

The band has been credited with the growth of the music genre now known as “Danger Music.”

“Using a variety of instruments, objects, and tools to create the sound during their extreme and savage performances, the band would eventually become too much to handle for venues and clubs alike.”

Concert goers were eventually required to sign waivers to see Hanatarash perform live.
