Hujan are a Malaysian rock band formed in 2005 by lead singer and guitarist Noh Salleh.[3] The band's current lineup consists of Noh Salleh (lead vocalist, rhythm guitarist), AG Coco (lead guitarist, backing vocals), Izzat Uzaini (bass guitar, backing vocals) and Azham Ahmad (drums). Fans of Hujan are dubbed as the Raingers, as the band's name translates to rain in Malay.[4]

The band began forming after Noh uploaded some of his demos to Myspace.[5] Despite the lack of love from certain quarters at early stage of the band, Hujan has the most successful breakthrough musics in Malaysia.[6]
