Porno Graffitti

Porno Graffitti also known as Poruno is a Japanese male rock band from Onomichi (formerly Innoshima), Hiroshima Prefecture, Japan. The band got their name from the album Pornograffitti by the band Extreme. They currently record under the SME Records label.

Haruichi Shindō originally formed the band with his cousin during high school and named it “No Score.” After the band started, Haruichi asked Akihito Okano and Masami “Tama” Shiratama to join. The band was so named because none of them could actually read a score when they first started. When they first started the band, Haruichi was the vocalist, but found out that Akihito could sing better, so he gave the vocalist position to Akihito and took over as guitarist instead. This was the foundation of Porno Graffitti.
