According to me, THE VAMPS is the number 1 Band. The way their songs are written and composed, they're totally different. So very Shocking to see their ranking! Their songs have the ability to get people into it and the composition and voice so touching.

I think THE VAMPS should struggle more in there field. So suprised and shocking news that you got 40 rank.
You all guys have that much ability to prove the world that THE VAMPS is the no. 1 band.
SO, GUYS PLEASE STRUGGLE MORE!
