Tum Door sounds like the best of those Vital Signs songs. Best Junoon song is maybe Saeen. Not sure if they were the first rock band in Asia though, maybe in Central or South-Central Asia. The far east certainly had rock bands earlier as did other places like Russia or Turkey.

I am sorry that I was not clear. I meant that it was Asia's first rock band to gain international recognition.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Junoon_(band)

Junoon is Pakistan's most successful band; the Q magazine regarded them as "One of the biggest bands in the world" and The New York Times called Junoon "the U2 of Pakistan".[3] Since their inception, the group has released a collective total of seventeen albums: seven studio albums; one soundtrack; two live albums; four video albums; and three compilations. Junoon is also South Asia's most successful band of all time with more than 30 million albums sold worldwide.

On June 30, 2000 the band then went on to perform at the European Rock Festival, Roskilde Festival, near Copenhagen, in Denmark.[22] Junoon became the first Asian band to perform at the festival and performed along with many well known bands and musicians like Pearl Jam, Iron Maiden, The Cure, Queensr˙che and many other well known artists from around the world.

Following the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, Junoon, in the aftermath of the attacks, traveled to the United States for a series of shows at universities and high schools. On October 9, the band played a peace concert at the United Nations (UN). On November 29, the music television channel, VH1, aired a special documentary, Islamabad: Rock City, about the group hosted by Susan Sarandon.

Ah ok, that could well be. I guess there must be a pretty big South Asian diaspora they can get support from in quite a few places too. India I guess hasn't really been into rock music it's been more music for films.

A major Pakistani musician is Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, he may have had more critical acclaim worldwide than anyone.

Nusrat is no more. His torch is being carried by his nephew, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan.
