スピッツ (Spitz) picture

Spitz (スピッツ) are a Japanese rock band. The group was originally formed in 1987 by four art school students in Tokyo. They are under Universal Music Japan label. 

After meeting in Shizuoka in 1986, they fashioned their sound along the lines of melodic pop rock groups like The Beatles. Issuing their debut album, Spitz, in 1991, the band went unnoticed for several years, but became very popular in 1995 with the release of their 11th single "Robinson" and 6th album Hachimitsu. One of their most famous songs, "Sora mo Toberu Hazu", was featured as the theme song of Hakusen Nagashi, a popular drama, and is used frequently in school graduation ceremonies. Several of their songs were featured in the anime Honey and Clover.
