Greeeen (stylized as GReeeeN) is a Japanese pop rock/hip hop/breakbeat vocal group from Kōriyama in Fukushima Prefecture, comprising the all-male four members: HIDE, navi, 92 (read as "kuni"), and SOH.

They made their debut with Universal Music in 2007. Their logo image is of a mouthful of teeth, and the four "e" indicate the number of members and the dentition that you can see when you smile because of all of them were graduated from the Faculty of Dentistry. The sound production is handled by HIDE's older brother JIN, a former guitarist of Pay money To my Pain.[1] According to their website at Universal Music Japan, their catch phrase is "Rock 'n' Breakbeats with four microphones".[2]

One notable characteristic is that none of the members have ever shown their faces in the public sphere as a part of GReeeeN, whether in their promotional videos, CDs, television performances, or the Internet. In their only performance on TV-U Fukushima's music show Music Bar Palo Palo (broadcast on January 19, 2007), the group even went as far as censoring their faces during the performance. The members' identities are still unknown, as their faces have never been made public. At first, the group stated that they would wait until all of the members passed the 2009 dental license exam before revealing their faces, but later in late 2009, they indicated that they will still keep their identities secret to avoid any interference with their careers as dentists.

All members studied at the dentistry department at Ohu University in Koriyama City, (Fukushima Prefecture) and the group debuted while still in school in 2007. In 2010, all members get a dental license and work as dentist in Kōriyama. In 2019, they were named as 'Frontier Ambassadors' for Kōriyama city.[3] In 2013, GReeeeN was announced in the text on the CD that HIDE and navi will travel to Hokkaido. 92 will travel to Okinawa and SOH is still working in Kōriyama.

In that day, GReeeeN also announced the start of the "Green boys project" by handwriting.[22] At that time, all members of GReeeeN, who witnessed the damage caused by the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami in their hometown of Fukushima, started this project with the idea that "At this moment, music may be able to help relax, warm, or encourage someone." GReeeeN launched the "Green boys project" with two challenges. First, "Green boys" will be distributed free of charge for a limited time (until September 30, 2011), as well as Japanese, English, Spanish, Chinese, Taiwanese, and Korean. Second, They started to make a music video of "Green boys" with everyone's feeling from solicit photos.

HIDE, GReeeeN leader, who participated in the inspection work of the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake, revealed the situation and feelings at that time with a voice-only appearance on TBS 's late-night news program "NEWS23" broadcast on March 3, 2016. At the interview, he said that he must not forget the fading memory that five years have passed since the 2011 earthquake and tsunami, and this is the first time for him to appear in the media in this way. GReeeeN members (excluding SOH for work) appeared on Fuji TV's morning news program "Mezamashi TV" broadcast on September 14, 2016 (release date of the album " Ren "). It was an appearance in a costume that imaged the members. December 8, 2016, GReeeeN appeared in a costume on NHK's late-night program "SONGS".

Masaki Suda, who appears in the movie "Kiseki -Anohi no Sobito- (キセキ -あの日のソビト-)" released on January 28, 2017, talked about the live performance and the background of GReeeeN, including the movie's promoter. This is the first time that all the members have performed together.

August 8, 2020, GReeeeN appeared in the special music program "Live Ale" linked to the "NHK with Corona Project". At that time, they appeared in the form of an interview with Teruyoshi Uchimura on the broadcast "Minna de Yale Kickoff Special" on July 9th of the same year. This is the first time they have appeared in a special music program.[23][24] GReeeeN participated in the "71st NHK Kouhaku Uta Gassen" on December 31, 2020. This is their first appearance on the show.[25] Their singing was performed in the NHK Hall, and this is a show that seems to be their "appearance" may be showed.[26] [27]

On August 6, 2014, GReeeeN appeared on a radio program for the first time in seven years in Fukushima FM 20th Anniversary Special!, "GReeeeN is here !! HAPPY LOVE SMILE Festival !!". In order to avoid confusion in the broadcast, it was a radio appearance from a special studio away from the Fukushima FM headquarters.

On August 19, 2016, the first national broadcast "GReeeeN's All Night Nippon Gold" was broadcast.

On February 22, 2017, he made his first appearance in "SCHOOL OF LOCK!".

Musical activities[edit]

About composition[edit]

Since GReeeeN is a vocalist for all four, They use a computer (HIDE uses GarageBand ) for band sounds, etc. , and record songs in a karaoke state. On HIDE's blog, you can see that his brother JIN is composing using a computer. When HIDE and navi were working together in the very early days, there was a time when they were recording songs as vocals with the cooperation of JIN's band. The style of the song at that time was mixture rock, which was extremely hard and heavy, reflecting their hobbies. I started listening to Western music mixture such as SUBLIME and SUGAR RAY, but HIDE and navi at that time said that they were going to make a mixture because their roots were pop music.

However, when SOH joined in 2004 and became the new GReeeeN, GReeeeN music that fused the sensibilities of four people such as rock band sound, breakbeats, hip hop, reggae, and J-POP. It will be established. In particular, the debut single "Michi" is a song that symbolizes GReeeeN music, and is a song created by the fusion of breakbeats and band sounds, the piano, the sad melody, and the harmony of the four voices.

Among the current GReeeeN songs, the debut single "Michi" is written and composed by HIDE, and the coupling "Kizuna" is written by HIDE and composed by JIN. Other songs are written and composed under the name of GReeeeN. However, on the HIDE's blog, "I think that if you listen to the album, you will understand it, but there are times when the person who is in each song sings in a jumbled manner with the pattern of taking lead vocals. ~ ”, so it's unclear who the members are writing and composing. Actually, "DREAM" recorded in "HIGH GK LOW ~ Hajikero ~" and the album "Ā, Domo. Ohisashiburi Desu." "SUN SHINE !!!" "Matane" "Sayonara Kara Hajimeyou", "Tobira", etc. are lead vocals by navi.

About lyrics[edit]

GReeeeN is also known for writing lyrics as well as composing. The characteristic of GReeeeN's poetry is "a message that appeals straight to the listener's heart." It is also a feature of "GReeeeN Music" mentioned in the previous section.

In particular, the simplicity as a result of pursuing "to tell people" is in a form that listeners can sympathize with.

navi once said that, "Each person has their own situation and environment, but I think the form that people can sympathize with most is like GReeeeN. Using lyrics and melody as communication, that It's the moment when I get a response by linking with the situation of the person who listens to it, which is the moment that I think is the most amazing as a creator. So it's easy to understand, straightforward, and it gives the listener an opportunity to overlap with their own situation. I think the words are good." Also, from the letter of leader HIDE, it was found that 92 said some words of the lyrics.
