Thin Man (瘦人乐队 shouren yuedui) are a Chinese rock band formed in Shandong in 1993[1] and moving to Beijing in 1994.[2][3]

As other first wave Chinese rock bands such as Black Panther became more pop-orientated, Thin Man was one of the bands which continued to play heavy rock.[4][5] Nevertheless, Thin Man became the first rock band allowed to perform on CCTV's Tongyi Shou Ge ("The Same Song") on June 30, 1999.[6]

The line up in 2011 was lead singer Dai Qin (戴秦) Inner Mongolian, guitar Zhou Kun (周坤), bass San'er (仨儿) and drummer Hayato from Japan.
