Etymology

The name Junoon, as the band was so named, came to lead guitarist Salman Ahmad in his dream. He said that in his dream he saw one of his teachers shaking him and said, "Tumhey mousiqui ka Junoon hai!" (meaning "You have an obsession for music!")

Success didn't come easy to Junoon as they tried to defy traditions in a conservative country like Pakistan. Their politically influenced songs were often subject to censorship, which led to the eventual ban from all state run television and radio during the rule of former Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.

Music

As it goes for Junoon's music, what has been seen is that their music, lyrics and sound is based upon issues of today. Their music has been one major force which has truly kept the national spirits high amidst the prevailing social woes which have surely worsened in the last three decades. Such music included songs like Jazba-E-Junoon, Sayonee, Talaash, Main kaun hun and many more. Considering everything mentioned on this page, it is not surprising to learn that the popularity, standard and stature of Junoon is considered to be the same as that of Nusrat Fateh ALi Khan or Lata Mangeshkar. Junoon's music has captivated the Pakistani youth for well over ten years and they were the only saving grace to Pakistani music on the international scene after the departure of Pakistani pop-music heavyweights, Nazia Hassan, Zohaib Hassan and the Vital Signs.


One of the legendary tours that Junoon had undertaken was their tour to Denmark and Europe in 2000-2001. This tour played a pivotal role in increasing Junoon's international popularity and standing and in spreading awareness about Pakistani music.


Junoon has played a major role in bringing the people of India and Pakistan close to one another. When tensions were high after the nuclear explosions in 1998, Junoon's' "Yaaron yehi dosti hai" was being played quite enthusiastically across music channels in India which also had a sizeable audience in Pakistan. Junoon's viewpoints on nuclear tests were loud enough to reach the White House. Their claim that rather than spending billions on nuclear weapons which would basically cause nothing more ruthless destruction, should be spent on spreading the light of education, alleviating poverty and providing good socio-health care conditions to the masses.


However, what was untold back then, was the erupting tensions and rivalry among band members. All this came into the limelight in 2002, when Salman Ahmad moved to the United States and Brian commented in an interview to Dawn's Images that his position in Junoon was 'temporarily non-existent'. Junoon managed to get a break from all these controversies when they released the super-hit Pappu Yaar Tang na Kar. Still, the rivalry did not end here. The band members separated for about two years during which Ali Azmat, released the highly acclaimed Social Circus. This album, alongside Atif Aslam's Jalpari, Jal's Aadat and Fakhir's Mantra has sold very well in the market. Ali Azmat's Naa re Naa won him many awards by the music channel Indus Music and also at the Lux Style Awards.

Junoon is one group that built its musical reputation and credibility on their willingness to explore uncharted territories and to experiment outside the straight jacketing confines of Western rock.
Junoon had already shown the confidence they had achieved in their special brand of East-West fusion on "Azadi".
This is a direction in which Junoon is willing to let its guard down, to rid itself of its recently found earnestness, to be vulnerable in experimentation again.

The junoon of 1998 is the embodiment of guitarist-composer Salman Ahmes’s belief in all-new sound; a belief which led him to abandon the premier pop band Vital Signs at a time when the band ruled the charts.
This was a new Junoon sound, very different in lyrical content and character to their previous music.
In a bold departure from their previous style, Junoon replaced the kit drum with regional folk instruments the table and dholak – on Azadi, which accompanied the electric and string acoustic guitars, "Our music has progressed from album to album," explains Brian.
