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.V45 Comments

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 is the bestV18 Comments
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...V1 Comment

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.
I am amazed not more scandal songs in here, so many good ones, and this is definitely one f their best. To see them pull this record off live is a joy in itself. Perfect for them and great for us fans too. It really highlights their ability a great pop rock band too. All their arrangement are so good, and this is no exception. A song that will last forever! - PaulFromAustralia
This song is so great that they made me a fan of SCANDAL because of this song!V38 Comments
I love this song. This is a song I could listen to again and again. It's so epic and awesome! I really loved the song in Kill Bill. It went with the movie so well. This needs to be higher!
Taka wrote this song for his parents! And it's one of the most moving songs I've ever heard :) though not my favourite song from them, this definitely deserves to be among the top songs, along with the other songs of theirs on this list ❤️V1 Comment
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.
This song riches the deepest in my heart, I listen to it everyday and when I heard it in concert it sounded excally the recording of the song. It also from fullmetal alchemesity opening
Very beautiful this songV28 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
The best song from X Japan which is long (exceed 27 mins) with 8-min piano solo played by Yoshiki. Toshi is indeed the best singer ever for X Japan
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.V13 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.
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.V2 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 masterpieceV20 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.V17 Comments
One ok rock should be in the list. Their music is amazing
I love this song to much to not vote for it
Only top 20? Come on this song is completely amazing! At least their song able to be on top 10
There are a lot of great songs of One ok Rock that deserves to be in the top 5 at least!V17 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.
Nothing to say, it's just the most beautiful song ever composed by a Japanese Band. People who don't know X-Japan so good still knows this music.
Wanna cry? Hear this...V2 Comments
