Wino (stylized as WINO and pronounced "wine-oh") is a Japanese rock band that formed in 1995 and broke up in 2002. Originally, the band's name was ボグ・マイトルスター (bogu maitorusuta), which seems to be just gibberish. The band was renamed WINO in 1996. One of Wino's biggest hits was "Taiyou wa Yoru mo Kagayaku" (The Sun Also Shines at Night), the second opening in the popular anime Hunter × Hunter.

Style and influences[edit]

Their music was heavily influenced by British rock bands, most notably The Beatles, and the band has often been compared to Oasis.
