Mongol800 (モンゴル はっぴゃく?, mongoru happyaku, stylized as MONGOL800) is a Japanese three-piece punk rock band from Urasoe, Okinawa, Japan formed in 1998. When they were aged 19, they released their first album. In 2001, despite low commercial attention, they sold over two-million records[1] from the album Message. Several years afterwards, they released more albums with just as much success.
