The Contenders: Page 10

181 Gedo

Just pure silly rhythm+blues/ punk rock n roll. Been around since the mid-70s, Their first and most well known album (self-titled) was recorded entirely live and not even mastered properly. I'd say The Stooges are a similar-sounding western comparison.

182 Acid Android

There music is different and unique, have to hand it to Yukihiro! He did a great job with this one, I recommend others to check them out!

the song of acid android have such feeling... they are full of passion!

183 WAG
184 Humming Bird
185 OZ

Best Japanese metal band hands down, sad to see them go. Not copy-cats they own their own sound and at one time their own look in a sea of Kei.

186 Sadistic Mika Band
187 Lucifer
188 The Mad Capsule Markets

The best band that has EVER walked this earth. Kyono and his unique voice, takeshi and his head bobbing bass, the various guitarists throughout the years, and motokatsu on drums. They strted my dream of me moving to japan and my dream continues to grow to move there and I hope so soon. Its a shame these guys split though, but WAGDUG FUTURISTIC UNITY and aaeual are bands that have broken off. I stroongly reccomend them.

189 Ayabie

I LOVE Ayabie. Although they disbanded, Aoi's vocals, Yumehito's bright colorful outfits and cute appearance, the way the band members looked as if they had so much fun, it always kept me going! All the songs, so beautiful that I can hardly describe them. I would love to see this band be #1 but it would be just as good if others took time to listen to this band and say, "oh gosh, I love these people" like I have. I will forever love Ayabie, AYABIE and Aoi from Ayabie. I'll always hope they get back together or continue their separate ways successfully.
Forever a fan and always loving them.

Ayabie or AYABIE this band is and forever will be the greatest band I've ever heard. Their music is the best.

There is not one Ayabie song I do not love! Their music is beautiful and Aoi's voice is entrancing. I'm really sad that I found out about them after their disbandment... But Aoi and Ryohei's new projects 168 and Megamasso are amazing as well ^_^

190 Yousei Teikoku

I really like this band. Not my favorite but they should be higher on the list

How can this band be this low on the leader board vocal talent and musical immersion is second to none.

I love yousei Teikoku, this band is amazing, magnific, is perfect.

191 Balzac

Balzac freakin owns, they should be higher on the list. Japanese punk rock is amazing!!!

192 Sons Of All Pussys

Best band ever. Ken from L'Arc~en~ciel is amazing. I'd go as far to say that they're even better than Laruku themselves.

193 BY-SEXUAL
194 SAVER TIGER
195 Chatmonchy

Great Japanese girl band with catchy songs and clever melody changes.

This was my first favourite band. I will be always in love with chatmonchy. I really like the hard work of Eriko, she is perfect, cute and with a great voice. Those girls are an inspiration to all the power-girl bands.

196 On/Off

I love this band
Especially their song eien no setsuna and futatsu no kodou

I love their newer song butterfly its almost perfect I can't wait to see more videos

197 Kuroyume

The band that influenced them all.

Chelly's voice is so sweet, her voice is cute and lovely. I love her.

They're good
