B'z TV Style SONGLESS VERSION is the first karaoke album by B'z, released on February 19, 1992. To enable fans to sing along as if they were at a karaoke establishment, the featured songs have all primary vocals removed with the full instrumentation and backing vocals remaining intact. The "TV Style" in the title refers to a naming convention common in Japan at the time to refer to karaoke being performed on television, in which karaoke songs performed in singing contests and variety shows would be appended with "TV Style". Being an early release of the band, this specialty album is made up of karaoke versions of their earliest works, including eight of their first nine singles.

Along with a sequel album released in 1995 by the title of B'z TV STYLE II Songless Version, the pair remain the only karaoke albums released by the band. The only other physically released karaoke version is one for their thirty-eighth single, "Ai no Bakudan", which was included on the limited edition as "Ai no Bakudan (TV Style)".

While B'z has not officially released a great deal of karaoke versions on physical media, their entire library is available at nearly every applicable karaoke venue in Japan for karaoke gatherings.
