Despite their pop-oriented nature, the trio maintains a distinctly underground garage rock sound rooted in edgy instrumentation and D.I.Y. aesthetics, which over the course of their long career has earned them a solid, worldwide cult following and made avid fans out of seminal '90s alternative rock bands such as Sonic Youth, Nirvana, and Redd Kross. The band has been credited with making "the international pop underground more international" by "opening it up to bands from Japan". They have also performed as a Ramones tribute band under the name The Osaka Ramones and have recorded music for numerous films including the theme song to the popular "PowerPuff Girls" cartoon series.
Shonen Knife has toured worldwide playing their unique brand of rock, with extensive touring in the US, Canada, UK, Europe, Japan, China, Australia, Thailand, New Zealand and more, the band is always moving forward and growing as a band with each and every release. SK's 20th album release entitled "Overdrive" was released in spring of 2014 followed by a wildly succesful UK, European and Japanese Tour to support the new album. The band has recently completed a 2014 North American tour including their 1000th performance in St. Paul MN on 9/16/14 !
