Osaka Popstar is a punk super-group of sorts formed in 2006 by New Yorker John Cafiero. Cafiero wanted an outlet to express his music but also incorporate his love for Japanese anime. In 2006, Cafiero teamed up with several well known punk rock artists to create the anime based punk group, Osaka Popstar. They released their debut album/DVD on May 23, 2006. Their lyrics consist of topics such as characters in Japanese anime like Astroboy and Sailor Moon. The first single off the album was a cover of singer/song writer Daniel Johnston, entitled "Wicked World." They are touring as a special guest appearance with The Misfits in Fiend Fest '06 across the United States and other dates in Europe with stops in Tijuana, Mexico and Montreal, Quebec in October and November 2006.
