The most famous band ever to come out of Hong Kong, Beyond formed in 1983 as a progressive rock group with ties to the Western post-punk movement. Persevering through initial public indifference, the band hit its stride in the late 1980s and early 1990s, as it released a string of commercial hits including "Glory Days", a political anthem dedicated to the accomplishments of Nelson Mandela. Riding the success of these songs, Beyond went on to become the most famous band in southeast Asia, attracting a massive fan base across Japan, Taiwan, and Malaysia as well as southern China.

Success for the band proved tragically short-lived. In 1993 Beyond's founder and lead singer Wong Ka-kui died from internal bleeding after an accidental fall during a television appearance in Japan. While his bandmates continued to play after his death, the loss of Wong's talents were self-evident: he had written over 90 percent of their previous material. The remaining members formally disbanded in 2005 and went on to pursue solo projects.

Glad you liked it. Here's the transcript and a vague translation of what they say at the beginning.

黃家駒: 我覺得生存喺呢個世界上嘅人呢,除咗膚色唔同之外呢,就個個都係平等嘅。

(I believe that people on the world, despite the difference of their colors, should be treated equal.)

葉世榮:所以人類唔應該有種族歧視呢樣嘢嘅。

(And racism shouldn't exist in the human race.)

黃家強:咁今次我哋帶俾你嘅新歌

(So this time we present you our new song...)

黃貫中:光輝歲月。

(...Glory days)
