Queen Bee (stylized as QUEEN BEE)[9][10][3][11][12] are a Japanese rock band, formed in Kobe on March 31, 2009.[1][4][13] They are known in Japan as Ziyoou-vachi[1] (Japanese: 女王蜂, Hepburn: Joōbachi)[14] and have described their genre of music and imagery themselves as "fashion punk".[3]

Within 2009 the band recorded and, at the beginning of 2010,[15] self-released an extended play record on CD-R through their own Ziyoou Record (女王レコード, Joō Rekōdo) label, followed by another the same year,[16] which they sold at their performances. In 2011 they had their first album, Witch Hunt, professionally manufactured and distributed. Later the same year they signed a major label contract, making Ziyoou Record a sub-label of Sony Music Associated Records.[1] They have since had four full-length major-label albums released[17] and their music has been featured in the films Love Strikes!,[18][19] Sadako[20] and Tokyo Ghoul 'S' and the television programs Spooky Romantics,[21][22] Tokyo Ghoul:re[23] and Dororo.[24]
