'''Polysics''' are a Japanese [[NewWaveMusic New Wave]] band originally founded by Hiroyuki Hayashi ("Hiro") in 1997. Hiro was heavily inspired by the American band {{Music/Devo}} as well as Japanese bands such as [[Music/SusumuHirasawa P-Model]] and YellowMagicOrchestra. To borrow a quote from ThatOtherWiki: "The band has been noted for their extremely energetic live performances and their wild gimmicky outfits, notably their trademark orange boiler suits, with a simple 'P' stamped on them, and their straight-bar sunglasses."

** WordSaladTitle is also present in the title of some of their songs. For example, ''New Wave Jacket'', and ''Colecanth is Android''.
* [[WidgetSeries Widget Band]]: Though how much of this is intrinsically Japanese and how much of it was inherited from {{Music/Devo}} is up for grabs.

* CoverVersion: They've done a half-cover of {{Styx}}'s "Domo Arigato Mr. Roboto," in that they took the intro and the Japanese lyrics and made up their own music to go with it. They've also covered "My Sharona," "Wild One," "[[TheRamones Psycho Therapy]]," and a few other songs in live performances (especially by {{Devo}}).
