Shin (traditional Chinese: 信樂團; simplified Chinese: 信乐团; pinyin: Xìn yuètuán) is a Taiwanese five-man Mandopop rock band who debuted in 2002 with their self-titled album, Shin (信樂團同名專輯). The name 'Shin' came from the groups's former lead vocalist, Shin. Other members include guitarist Chris, bass player Max, keyboard player Tomi, and drummer Michael. The band is managed by Music Nation Wingman Limited (大國翼星娛樂).

Apart from Shin's home market of Taiwan, the band also have fans in Mainland China, Hong Kong and among overseas Chinese. Some of the bands well-known songs include "死了都要愛", "離歌", "海闊天空", "One Night in 北京", "天亮以後說分手", "天高地厚". The track "一了百了" is listed at number 38 on Hit Fm Taiwan's Hit Fm Annual Top 100 Singles Chart (Hit-Fm年度百首單曲) for 2002.[1]
