Beat Crusaders are a Japanese rock band. They are known for wearing masks in public. They do not wear their masks during concerts. There are 5 members in this band. The members are Hidaka Touru (vocals and guitar), Kubota Masahiko (bass), Katou Tarou (guitar), Mashi-ta (drums), and Keitaimo (keyboards). The band started in 1997. Almost all of their songs are written in English even though some of them do not make sense and Hidaka's pronunciation is off like Engrish. Their music genre is said to be melodic hard core, digital rock, and power pop.

The masks[change | change source]

The members of the band wear masks because they were once working as office workers and they could not show their faces. After they became well known, they decided to keep wearing their masks. The masks became a trademark for the band.
