no Rock Star", featured Issay (Der Zibet) on backing vocals, he also appeared with the band on the tour.
Two months after Southern released their debut single, their first album called "Atsui Munasawagi" was marketed. The band was not able to devote ample time to recording and songwriting for "10 Numbers Carat", their second album which featured their breakthrough ballad "

In addition, as a vocalist, he imitated the lisping vocals of Toshihiko Tahara, one of the most popular Japanese male idol singers at that time. Such popular expression generally received favorable reaction from the public, and became the band's most successful single since "

Because of the sales promotion of "Katte ni Sindbad" and a following single "Kibun Shidai de Semenaide", they were considered performers of novelty songs. However, "
no Ellie", their third single released on March 25, 1979, was sufficient to overturn their comedic public image. This pop-ballad was highly regarded by many Japanese music critics and artists, including Hiroshi Miyagawa and Kosetsu Minami. The song is regarded as one of the most notable songs by the Southern All Stars. In 1988, a cover version by Ray Charles was featured in a Suntory Limited TV advertisement.

The song was given the concept of a Sakanaction version of Southern All Stars' 1978 song "Katte ni Sinbad" when writing. While Yamaguchi said this as a joke, he felt that this was true for where the band were in their career (like Southern All Stars, who were able to produce many high response singles after "Katte ni Sinbad", such as "
no Ellie" (1979)). As the song was the band's first summer release, the band members wanted a melody that would express this. Together, they felt that adding conga drums would add to the summer atmosphere of the song. In the band's previous album, "Kikuuiki", where the band had attempted to 'mix the unmixable'. "Identity" was an extension of this, where they mixed "heavy" lyrics with a "fun" backing track. The song's sound was an experiment for the band as they considered what pop music was, when previously they had thought of their music in terms of rock. Instead of a pop sound that merely colored the band, Sakanaction wanted to create pop music with a Sakanaction approach. If they were not able to do this, Yamaguchi felt that the band would become trapped; only accessible to a small field of music fans. Because of this, Yamaguchi considers "Identity" to be a song that showed off a new aspect of Sakanaction, similar to their songs "Sen to Rei" (2008) and "Aruku Around" (2010).
They began playing sets consisting of covers of American pop and rock hits such as "Hey Joe", "Got My Mojo Workin'" and "I Feel Good". They became the house band at the Golden Cup discotheque close to the US Army base, and the club's owner persuaded them to change their name to the Golden Cups. The band also soon won a regular place on the NHK-TV morning show, "Young 720", and a recording deal with the Capital label owned by Toshiba. In June 1967, they released their first single, "
No Jizabel" / "Hiwa Mata Noboru". The record label compelled the group to record bland pop songs written by staff songwriters for most of their A-sides, only allowing them free rein on the records' B-sides and some album tracks. The same approach was imposed on their performances, with the band obliged to play pop ballads at their major concerts, while playing eccentric garage band covers and hard rock when appearing in small clubs. They released their first album, "The Golden Cups Album", in March 1968, and had their biggest pop hit, "Nagai Kami No Shoujo" ("Girl With Long Hair") soon afterwards.
