One of the best and most passionate bands I've ever heard, personally number 1

264KANA-BOON

Love their cheery and upbeat style! It is reminiscent of Green Day and Offspring. Nandemonedari is so catchy!

Instrumental and sound wise Jupiter is much more alive and wild than when they were in Versailles. The only thing that is keeping them from surpassing their pass height is acceptance. Somehow it always sounds like the instrument sound is trying to drowning out the vocal instead of harmonizing with it.

268Sakanaction

Best descent band in Japan

269Indigo la End

Really awesome rock duo They sang Leo from Haikyuu's EST. Which the English version of it was very deep but if you look inside it, it really is touching.

276Wagakki Band

They are the best in folk-rock, just awesome, all of them have an impressive talent.

Really? All the way back here? People really need to do some more research on good music. Wagakki is EASILY better than ALL the bands listed on the top 10, in every. single. way.

This is an amazing band! My favourites are Senbonzakura and Kagerou days.

I first heard their music in the end credits for Starship Troopers - Invasion movie. It is a track called Another Perfect Day from their album Embrace (2013) which is both thrilling and beautiful and remains my all time favourite BBS album. Every album is different in genre. So far I've heard them do modern jazz, break beat, drum n bass, rap, rock, experimental and even gospel!
One question; WHY am I the first one to add them to this distinguished list? They've been banging out superb music since 1998!

I like their song Another Perfect Day because it's got an interesting sound. I like how I've never heard a band sound like that and they're the first ones I've ever heard sound so cool.

Criminally underrated. Wonderful musicians, and Gara is my favorite person in j-rock for the imagination and passion he brings to his lyrics and performances.

These guys are amazing, very unique music -- I hope they get big.
