Takahiro Yamada (山田 貴洋 Yamada Takahiro ?) (August 19, 1977) is the bass player and backing singer of the Japanese rock band Asian Kung-Fu Generation. Yamada met fellow band members Masafumi Gotō and Kensuke Kita while attending a music club of Kanto Gakuin University. The three formed Asian Kung-Fu Generation in 1996, with drummer Kiyoshi Ijichi joining the band shortly after.[1 ]

While Masafumi acts the main songwriter of the band, Yamada has provided lyrics for certain songs. He retains a degree in literature and his favourite bands are The Beatles, Oasis, The Smashing Pumpkins, and Pet Shop Boys.[2] The band once had the opportunity to meet the Gallagher brothers while opening for a tour Oasis once held in Japan. The brothers turned out to be quite nicer than they expected. Noel Gallagher in particular reportedly told AKG to, "Keep rocking."[3]
