Stray Kid’s music is written, composed, and produced by members Bang Chan, Changbin, and Han. Before being on Stray Kids, these members formed the predebut group 3RACHA. Their music can still be found on Youtube, on the channel 3RACHA.

The concept of Stray Kids is that of the feelings and struggles experienced as one comes of age—who am I and where am I going? Topics like depression, anxiety, being unsure of yourself, wishing to break free from the conformity of the world, and being yourself are explored in their music. Being able to make their own music has allowed the members to express their hearts and feelings in it, giving even their lighthearted songs a personal and honest message. Stray Kids fans are appropriately called “Stays” with the idea that stray kids all around the world make Stray Kids stay.

So far in 2020 they have made both an English debut (with the EP Step out of Clé) and a Japanese debut (with the album SKZ2020). They have also released a new mixtape, “바보라도 알아” ("Mixtape : On Track"), "Top" and "Slump" for the "Tower of God" anime OST, as well as their first full-length album, Go Live and its repackage In Life.

One of my favorite Stray Kids songs is “Question,” which expresses the frustration of having so many questions but no answers. Check it out below!
