"Loop & Loop" (ループ&ループ, Rūpu&Rūpu) is a song by Japanese rock band Asian Kung-Fu Generation. It was released as the second single of their second full-length studio album, Sol-fa, on May 19, 2004.[1]

The song was used as the theme song for the drama Dame Nari!. The following year, the song was used in Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan, a Japanese rhythm game released on Nintendo DS.[2]

Music video[edit]

The music video for "Loop & Loop" was co-directed by Kazuyoshi Oku and Masafumi Gotō.[3] The PV takes place within a classroom populated by four young boys. Over the course of the video, the students ride bikes, play jumprope, and pretend to be a band using brooms for guitars. All the while, they listen to headphones and lip-sync the lyrics to the song. In Eizō Sakuhinshū Vol. 1, it showed the boy at the beginning listening to CD with Takahiro Yamada who wears sunglasses in the cover and at the end, it change with Loop & Loop's cover. But they cut the both scenes in their official Youtube.
