Babamania is a Japanese rock group best known for their 2003 hit "Wanna Rock," which is known internationally due to its inclusion on the multi-platform video game FIFA Football 2004. They are also known for their track "Doobee Doowop Communication" which was played at the end of the anime Rockman EXE Stream.

They have released seven albums since December 2000 including "Diskord," "Pornmuzik," "I.D.," "Ilnana," "Jungle Livin'," "Great Grand Bag of Magic Tricks" and a 'best of' compilation called "bababest."

They formed in 1992 but did not release any albums until 2000 when the female singer Mari joined. The band has also made many mini albums and extended play albums such as "Pau Hana" and "EP."
