'Kamikaze' is a Japanese word meaning 'divine wind.' During World War II, it was applied to the suicide attacks by military aviators from the Empire of Japan against Allied naval vessels. Designed to destroy warships more effectively than was possible with conventional attacks, around 3,860 kamikaze pilots gave their lives in attacks when their bomb-loaded fighters crashed into Allied naval vessels.
References to kamikaze in popular music include Cavalera Conspiracy' "Bonzai Kamikaze
" about the Japanese pilots' fervor to sacrifice themselves for their country and a-ha's 1988 hit single "The Blood That Moves the Body
" about the suicide attacks.
