Biography

YB Profile

YB (YOON BAND) is a rock group consisting of 4 musicians - vocalist Skitter D.H (Yoon Do-hyun), guitarist Baby J (Huh Jun), drummer Jin (Kim Jin-won) and bass guitarist Taehee (Park Tae-hee).

Since their inception in 1994, YB have released a total of 8 regular albums and one DVD album, and have won several awards in Korea for sales of more than 2,000,000 records. Each year, they play 100+ concerts and perform in front of more than 500,000 people.

During the Korea-Japan World Cup game in 2002, the band sang 'Oh, pil-seung Korea (Oh, victory to Korea)' and 'Ari-rang' in front of the millions of cheering home fans and overnight became Korea's indisputable #1 rock band.

They won the best music awards from Korea's three main broadcast stations KBS, MBC and SBS, and won the WPMA (World Peace Music Award) in 2003 for their activities in promoting human rights.

In 2005, YB were the first Korean band to ever tour Europe, and even released a single in the UK.

This was followed by 2 solo concerts in New York in November 2006. They performed at B.B King's Blues Club, and tickets for this concert were sold out after 20 days!

Musically, the band combines rock with traditional instruments such as the Gayakum (a Korean musical instrument with twelve strings) or the Daekum (a Korean traditional wooden clarinet) for recordings.

Lyrics

Flesh & Bones

Written By: yb, Tomy Kita

The smell of sun
I remember starts to fade
As you make me blind
As I¡¯m turning soft and tender by your shine

You are the biggest one
Always beating always beating on the little one's
And I¡¯m just standing here
Witnessing History as the sun goes's down

Remember flesh and bones
Throw down your yellow stones
We are just flesh and bones
Burn down your yellow throne

I see the news
It only pains me to believe you
You talk a lot of peace
but what you really got inside full of hate

Hollywood

Written By: yb, Tomy Kita

Plastic faces
Leaving no traces
Wondering what places to be

Every pain rain
She's falling insane
Killing my flame into your fame

This is my my Hollywood
There's nothing real about me
This is you're you're Hollywood
So if you're deceived just let it be

You can have it
But you can't fix it
Underneath your stain of time
Come along now into this new mansion
The sweetest price you'll have to pay

What you thought would always be yours
Just passed you by
Back of limousing on the cover of that magazine
Trying to make a scene but you're shivering like a fiend
You believed the hype but it just didn't turn out so right

So this is my my Hollywood
So this is you're you're Hollywood

You wanted all you had it all
You flew too high now your wings are dry

No this ain't my Hollywood
No this ain't your Hollywood
No this ain't my
No this ain't my
No this ain't my my Hollywood

It burns

Written By: yb, Tomy Kita, Kim Shin Il

Everything came my way suddenly faded away
Under this blue subway my tracks are painted in grey

Just keep on turning Just keep on burning

Riding on heart of stone here again I go alone
Running through endless nights flaming in circles again

Just keep on turning Just keep on burning
Just keep on turning Just keep on burning

Come take me higher under your fire
I just don't care anymore
There's no desire my flames go higher
You can't take away no more

You stuck this dream inside
You made me throw it away
You're sweeter than the sun
My morals left undone
