Stray Kids is a boy group composed of eight members, leader Bang Chan, Lee Know, Changbin, Hyunjin, Han, Felix, Seungmin, and I.N. The group originally debuted with nine members. However, one member departed from the group in 2019. Stray Kids was debuted by JYP Entertainment in 2017. The members were all cast after starring in JYP’s and Mnet’s reality survival show entitled “Stray Kids.” The trainees had to showcase their rapping, singing, and dancing skills in front of judges and industry experts during the show.
Unlike many Kpop groups, Stray Kids actively contribute to their music production. Credited as 3RACHA, the three members, Bang Christopher a Han, Han Jisung, and Seo Chang Bin, helped create their tracks, including “Go Live,” “Hellevator,” and “Cheese.” Moreover, group leader Bang Chan and main rapper Seo Chang Bin produce almost all of the group’s tracks with some contributions from the other members. They can be credited for producing Stray Kids’ biggest hits, such as “God’s Menu” and “Thunderous.” Stray Kids are known for their loud synthesizer sounds, powerful rap lines, and melodic vocals. They are known for their “noise music,” which the group later used as inspiration for their album, Noeasy. Lyrically, the group uses a mix of Korean and English.
Stray Kids had received several accolades, including two Golden Disc Awards, five Asia Artist Awards, a Gaon Chart Music Award, and an MTV Europe Music Award. Their lead singles, “God’s Menu,” “Thunderous,” and the recently released “Maniac,” have dominated the Korean charts and Billboard World Albums charts.
