Try a early 90's Hong Kong (China) band called Beyond. They got nice lyrics, melody. They came around the time of Nirvana, I guess you can say they are the Hong Kong Nirvana, they kicked a lot of ass back then (they are not Grudge tho).
The singer/guitarist/song writer tripped over a cable on stage and died around 1994 I believe. But his little brother continued the band with the remaining 3 ppl until recently they splited up.
They were uber popular in Japan during early 90's too, actually, he died in Japan.
