Hanoi Rocks were a Finnish rock band formed in 1979. They were the first Finnish band to chart in the UK and they were also popular in Japan. The band broke up in June 1985 after drummer Nicholas “Razzle” Dingley died in a car accident during their first US tour in December 1984. Original vocalist Michael Monroe and guitarist Andy McCoy reunited in 2001 with a new lineup that lasted until 2009. Although musically closer to traditional rock n’ roll and punk, the band have been cited as a major influence in the glam metal genre for bands such as Guns N’ Roses, Skid Row and Poison.

According to Finnish radio and TV personality Jone Nikula, who was the band’s tour manager in the 2000s, Hanoi Rocks’s albums have sold between 780,000 and 1,000,000 copies around the world, mostly in Scandinavia and Japan.

Up Around the Bend” is a song recorded by the American band Creedence Clearwater Revival, and written by the band’s lead singer, guitarist, and songwriter John Fogerty. The song was composed and recorded only a few days prior to the band’s April 1970 European tour and was included on the album Cosmo’s Factory. Released as a single, with “Run Through the Jungle” on the flipside, the double-sided single climbed to number four on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the spring of 1970.

It was certified gold by the RIAA for sales of over one million copies. It was also a major hit in the UK, where it reached number three on the UK Singles Chart.

The song opens with a prominent, high-pitched guitar riff played by John Fogerty. The song’s lyrics have Fogerty telling of a gathering “up around the bend” on the highway and inviting the listener to join in.

The song has been covered by artists such as Elton John, who recorded a version of the song early in his career, and Finnish rock band Hanoi Rocks, who covered it on their 1984 album, Two Steps from the Move.
