Maximum the Hormone is a Japanese band which derives influence from Punk Rock, Funk, Rock, Pop, Metal, Anime, Manga and Japanese popular culture with lashings of sex.

They are not a "comedy" band, but many of their songs, like "Bikini Sports Ponchin", "Chu Chu Lovely Muni Muni Mura Mura Purin Purin Boron Nurururerorero" and "Houchou Hasami (Cutter Knife Dosu Kiri)" have pretty damn funny lyrics when contrasted with the upbeat tunes of the songs.

The band are probably best known for their songs "What's Up People?" and "Zetsubou Billy", which are the second opening and closing themes of the Death Note anime, and are generally harder edged and less hilariously perverted than most of their songs ("A kindergartener is fine, too.").

Faith No More, Incubus, System of a Down and the early work of Red Hot Chili Peppers are comparable.

Their music contains examples of
