"Storm" is the ninth single by Japanese rock band Luna Sea, released on April 15, 1998. It is their fourth to reach number 1 on the Oricon singles chart, and was the 29th best-selling single of the year with 720,370 copies sold, also making it the band's best-selling single. It was used as the April 1998 theme song for NHK's music television show Pop Jam.



Guitarist Sugizo cited "Storm" as one of the songs he tried to replicate the "psychedelic feel of shoegaze bands" by using effects, "like playing fast with a wah-wah pedal, or using tape-echo and harmonizers. I couldn’t figure out how they did it, so I just made it into my own thing."
