A couple of weeks ago we featured "Challenger" in this series which was a Japanese song with lyrics regarding boxer, and today we featured another Japanese song that is again lyrically referencing boxing, rather than being about a the sport.
The Kai Band, lead by Yoshihiro Kai, are a Japanese rank band that have, on an off, been around since the 1970's and released "The Beast" in 1979. The lyrics, although in Japanese, do reference boxing a number of times and has been seen used in Japanese anime related videos.
Although clearly not as accessible to a non-Japanese audience as some other songs we've featured here we do enjoy the track musically, and would advise people give it a shot even if they don't understand the lyrics.
Unfortunately, though not for the first time, we've been unable to find what seems like an official music video, but this live performance is certainly not a bad rendition of the track
Some things don't fit in elsewhere on the site so have been put here as a result.
