Top 10 Japanese Rock SongsTD17
The Top TenXW
In the beginning of the song, the tantalizing intro and the seductive female harmony already created a sexual atmosphere for the audience. Step by step, Ruki(the GazettE's vocalist)managed to lead us deeper and deeper into the isolating world of sex. During the climax of the song, GazettE loses themselves, completely thinking and playing in the identity of a sex slave. This song ends beautifully with insanity while the audience is still trapped in lust and desire.
Well I think this song is great. I mean here you are in computer world and now they give you reall rock music like you ever wanted. Love music video clip cause they're shakin their heads all around and can't stop this makes me feel free...
they not just show they abilities in music, they also show their style! and this songs is good for headbangers! very energetic song
GazettE is the best band in the world. They speak with an inner truth not a idealized view of life. All their music is honest and comes from a deeper understanding of he contemporary human experience. Nothing cliche about the GazettE.V48 Comments
Just listen to the song, It is perfection, Music at it's finest. All of it flows perfectly within itself. It is Hypnotizing.

Morrie's vocals & the lyrics of this song are very relaxing and beautiful. The melody makes me shiver every time I listen to it.
This song, though old, is the best.
Old school is the best!
Its more original then most, the arrangement is amazing.
Great music. Great vocal. I lost for words when I heard this song. It is really "kurenai" music. You should listen to it to feel the great.
This is the first famous rock song from X-Japan, the best rock band ever in Asain! I love this song. Before this song, I don't think rock in Japan is that popular!

This songs tells us a story of a love that couldn't happen and the frustration and anxiety you feel when you can't express your emotions by the time you feel them, now he wishes her the best of luck on her future. "Now forever close your eyes" Go on...

SCANDAL Rocks! M/
~SCANDAL FOREVER! :D
Powerful song, written by cute girls, lyrics of strong messages and above all complete command of their instruments. They can rock the stage any day with this song. Oh and their studio live version of this song is.. Just.. THE BEST!
One of my favourite anime songs from one of my favourite bands. MEGA LOVE THIS SONG.
In my opinion this is a great blockbuster song, deserves even to the first position.V40 Comments
Rain is a song which is very special to me. The powerful music arrangment, the strong, melodic vocal stole my heart even when I hadn't understand the lyrics at all.. Then, when I read the translations.. I cried out real hard. Rain made my heart poured out and it "rained" my face, arms, and all over my shirt. I still remember that I cried non-stop, like a flowing river for a couple of hours.
Why? Because what Mao-san said, what he sang in the song was what I had kept in my heart for years, which I wish to let out but can't. I realized that I'm not alone anymore, that somewhere out there someone is feeling the same kind of pain and helplessness. The complex music arrangement is so beautiful, that I can't forget this band at all. I fell in love.. (^^)
SID-san, thank you for being a part of my life that made be become stronger. (^^)
Rain of SID is very perfect. Please vote for this song
Beautiful song. Amazing vocals. Good bass. Brings tears to my eyes even though I you don't understand the lyrics.
Very beautiful this songV31 Comments
Of course Art of Life is the best song, not only in Japan, but in the world. Much better than anything above it, even Kurenai. Drink it Down? Any song by L'Arc en Ciel, Dir en Grey, The Gazette (especially) will never compare to a single song of X Japan, especially Art of Life. Filth in the Beauty and Cage are pure crap and shouldn't even be on this list, and Drink it Down just isn't good enough to be number one. No other song will take you on such a roller coaster ride--the journey of life. Art of Life is perfection.
Love the song mate; of course it has some soft parts, it is progressive metal for crying out loud. Love the orchestra too. God Bless Japan. - aeromaxx777
One of best song ever in the world. Yoshiki plays piano so cool.
May be, this song is better than octavarium (dream theater)
Art of life is a great song, but X Japan fans need to stop their elitism. I'm an X Japan fan myself, but some of you are just too condescending. There are other great bands aside X.V17 Comments
I believe this song is almost a full tribute to Jasmine after his passing. It may or may not be about the loss of him, but it gives you a sense that apart from Versailles' constant high-energy music can come a smoother and quieter style.
This song, I cried so hard when I first listened to it because of how much I missed jasmine you. I still do, and I still tear every time I listen to it. It's a beautiful piece, and it's a beautiful reminder of how life goes on, and there's still beauty even in its sadness.
Love the song. Beautiful melody, amazing lyrics, and a damn good arrangement. Makes you wanna cry after listening to it, especially so if you know the meaning.
This is the first song I ever heard from versailles and the one that made me fall in love with them too. everything is right with it. kamijo's voice, hizaki's and teru's guitar parts, even the lyrics while I don't understand them at all. a true masterpieceV24 Comments
I don't care that the song was from visual kei days, but there is meaning behind it. It starts out very slow and beautiful but ends up rocking out. The lyrics are beautiful and this song always strikes something in me. Toshiya's bass solo was also incredible. Kyo's singing was also perfect. It's like the whole band's soul is in that song.
Visual kei at its best with a truly amazing bass solo. - TD17
My favourite of this Dir en Grey's era, the guitar solo at the beginning is truly enchanting. It's my mom's favourite too. not kidding.
They have great solo bass part!V4 Comments
Please listen to Daita's melody... You can feel the most strong guitarist emotion inside
UVERworld is highly recommended. I think it should be even higher up the list. Their lead singer has an amazing voice.
Amazing song... It will touch your sense... A great band and a great singer, a amazing songwriter. Uverworld is the best band I ever heard in my life and I support them
This is a great song of UVERworld I ever heard
This song saves many people. It should be higher on the list. The band is incomparable, and their songs (especially the lyrics) bring spirits and reasons to live. I love them very deeply. Six Pride forever.V21 Comments
Number 8th? This shouldn't be happening... I mean, don't you all think this song should be top 3?
No? Try listening to it before you deny the awesomeness. Once you listen, you may be moved to TEARS, just like what happened to me a year ago. 8)
This song... For about half an hour after I first heard it, I couldn't talk. It just swept me off my feet, blew my mind and left me speechless.
Why this song not in top 3?... This is the best song from x japan for me... I'm 14 years old now but I can fell this song... Beautiful lyrics... Good musician... Old song is gold... Tears~
Wanna cry? Hear this...V6 Comments
Love him, and his music! He is just individual as his music. He is the best singer ever! Mizerable is a very beautiful song with the violin play - just listen and enjoy!
His songs always have meaning to something in our lives, Mizerable is one of them like the other songs written by him. My favourite forever is Tsuki no Uta, an beautiful song
even though it was his first solo single I think its the best. - TD17V5 Comments
