Power Station (zh-tsp|t=動力火車|s=动力火车|p=Dònglì Huǒchē) is a Taiwanese rock band, formed by two brothers. Their music is characterized by their fast-paced rock ballads, as well as their electrifying rock anthems. Their looks and long hair stand out from the mainstream Chinese pop scene because of their resemblance to typical western Heavy Metal musicians. In 2001, Power Station released their only album on the Grand Music label (later known as HIM International Music), "Walking along Jhonghsiao East Street Nine Times". The title track of that album (Chinese version of song from 1997 "Takie tango" by Budka Suflera) won the Silver Award for Best Mandarin Song at the 24th RTHK Top Ten Golden Song Awards.
