Aburadako (あぶらだこ) is a Japanese noise punk band. Their name means "Greasy Octopus".[1] A notable oddity is that none of Aburadako's albums have titles and are only distinguished by their packages. In September 2007, Rolling Stone Japan rated their 1985 studio album at No. 55 on its list of the "100 Greatest Japanese Rock Albums of All Time".[2]



  • 'Aburadako / Yokujitsu' (9/8/2002) - This is a privately copied CD-R recording of their performance and called "CD-R"
  • 'Aburadako / Yokujitsu' (1/24/2004) - This is called "Kami-jake" because of its paper packaging.


Each album is titled Aburadako. They are differentiated primarily by their cover. Catalogue numbers are provided by the respective record companies. The 2008 compilation of the band's early work from 1983 to 1985 breaks this trend.
