Junoon:
Junoon (Urdu: جنون) (meaning "obsession/passion" in English) is South Asia's biggest and Pakistan's most popular Rock band, based out of Lahore and Karachi. It was formed in 1990 by guitarist, songwriter and medical doctor Salman Ahmad. Q magazine calls them "One of the biggest bands in the world". Billboard says Junoon is the Subcontinent's "biggest crossover successes after the late Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan".

They sing mostly in the language of Urdu, in a style blending Western hard rock with Sindhi and Punjabi folk and Qawwali. Junoon, in effect, had to create an audience for rock music in Pakistan. "The band's appeal reaches beyond the Westernised elite", says Newsweek.

The New York Times called Junoon as " the U2 of Pakistan". In a preview to Junoon's performance at the House of Blues in Los Angeles, the L.A. Times says Junoon's "ability to captivate audiences" is "inspiring Beatles-like reactions".


Lyric:
Tapti Dhoop Talay
Chawoon Ki Hai Talaash
Tausub Ki Dhool Thamey
To Millay Shanakht
Chomey Agar Yei Zameen
Choyen Ge Hum Aasman
Sochein Abhi Hum Agar
Guzzar Jayen Ge Imthan
Jhoot Pe Jo Pale
Aaj Hain Wo Udaas
Nafratoon Main Ghirey
Nochein Aapni Hi Lash
Zhani Ghulami Se
Kash Ho Hum Azad
