Is it authentic Taiwanese rock music or rock and roll soul fused with the Taiwanese language? It depends on one’s personal opinion. Most would say that Sorry Youth is a bit of both. Sorry Youth is one of the most significant examples of independent Taiwanese bands with a strong local awareness and consciousness. It’s evident in their music and what they do outside of their music careers.
With three critically acclaimed albums under their belts, Sorry Youth has successfully established a strong bond and deep connection with their listeners. Their most recent album, “Bad Times Good Times”, narrates the band’s uncertainty for the future and devotion to their homeland, and their tireless efforts to preserve their mother tongue. The 9-track album are all sung in Taiwanese language, which has become a hallmark for the band.
