Hailed as one of the pioneers of rock music in Taiwan, Mayday is an Alternative Rock band that was formed in the late 90s with five members, Ashin, Monster, Stone, Masa and Guan You. Mayday’s songs are written mostly in Mandarin with some Min Nan tracks by Ashin. They are popular for their student band roots and their ability to capture the zeitgeist of Taiwanese youth in the mid to late 90s.
Mayday has made no secret of its admiration of the Beatles whom they cite as influencing their ideals of Rock music. The song “John Lennon” off their fifth album showcases the group’s dream to become the “Beatles of the Chinese World.” Other diverse musical influences include the Irish band U2, the British band Oasis and China Blue.
The band released its first album under Rock Records on July 7, 1999 and they were nominated for “Best Band” at the 11th Golden Melody Awards that same year. The band’s second album Viva Love was released in July 2000 and won the award for “Best Band” at the 12th Golden Melody Awards. The album’s success was followed by a series of concerts called Ten Thousand Youths Standing Up in Taipei City, Zhang Hua and Kaohsiung City. On March 19, 2009, Mayday kicked off their new World Tour D.N.A. Mayday “Creates” Concert which commenced in Hong Kong and the band released two songs “D.N.A.” and “Unbridled” for the tour.
