宇宙戦隊NOIZ (now called UCHUSENTAI:NOIZ) are an oshare kei, more specifically, a cosplay band (like Psycho le Cému) from Japan. The band has not directly claimed to classify themselves as such, however they do claim to have taken influence from cosplay for their image. Their style is a combination of techno, hard rock, and pop. Assuming the roles of soldiers from space, they are decidedly serious about protecting peace on Earth with music.
They started in late 1997 and created a few demo cassettes, but didn't begin to take off until around 2001. They released their first mini album as NOIZ with the title Imitation PoPs in March 1999, though their first true album サイボーグロックショウ完全盤 was released in 2003 as Imitation PoPs 宇宙戦隊NOIZ. EGO-style, 宇宙戦隊NOIZ's third album, broke the top 100 on Japan's Oricon music charts shortly after release in 2005.They changed their name to 宇宙戦隊NOIZ in mid 2007. T ERRA was released in September 2007, containing 8 tracks previously released as a single and 5 new recordings. As of June 2008, they reached #1 in the Oricon Indies charts.

March 2009 saw the band's last original line-up release, being a Best Of which featured many single releases, B-sides and one new song. It was announced in April 2009 that S@TT-ON and TAKEswiy would leave the band and were going to be replaced by Kotarou (guitar) and YAMATO (drums).
