208 The Band Apart The Band Apart The Band was a Canadian-American roots rock group formed in 1965 . Which originally consisting of Rick Danko (bass guitar, double bass, fiddle, vocals), Levon Helm (drums, mandolin, guitar, vocals), Garth Hudson (keyboards, saxophones, trumpet), Richard Manuel (piano, drums, vocals) and Robbie Robertson ...read more.

Nobody ever mentioned these guys? One of the most stand out indie rock band in the Japanese indie music scene. They've been labeled as "Musician's Musician", and many of VK artist turn out to be really giving them a respect of their music. Fuses many elements of jazz, rock, punk, funk, electronica, even more, their music is somewhat complex but catchy.

Seen them live before and constantly being captivated by their performance! Brilliant!

209 Funkist

The funk-reggae style of this band is lovely, they have so many good song. Even they reach your heart and teach you good lessons.

Fairy Tail OP 1 "Snow Fairy" got them famous, tragically the flute player died recently. - MeowMix

Great happy and catchy songs.. I like

210 Yellow Fried Chickenz
211 Veltpunch

How are they not in the top 10? "Paint the Sky Gray" is as good as any cd, japanese or otherwise.

SERIOUSLY? Not alteast top 100? They're almost like 15 years already. This band is good I think so

212 Fact

Amazing band love them. Their album "Never turn out the lights to keep myself" Has one of their most heaviest songs containing my most favorites but their other albums are also great and full up upbeat, screaming, and even calm melodies. One of the bands that changed my life and never will grow tired of them.

Why is fact not in this list?!?!? They are AMAZING! They have a completely new take on modern day rock and change it in their own jap style, I've been listening to the same album for months and still nowhere near bored of it

It's unlike the other jpanese band. I prefer it's an unique band in japan it self

213 Plus

Great song for hitman reborn ending

214 GO!GO!7188

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.

This is my favorite band of all time.

220 Puffy Amiyumi

One of my all time favorite is Puffy

Flame me whatever you want. I hate Puffy Amiyumi. Their songs are mediocre as heck. They sings without emotion. They sound monotonic and pessimist. The song I hate is "Honey" by Ami Onuki. It cheesy and nonsense. The only good song from them is TT theme. Don't expect me that I like them too much. UVERWorld, Binaria, and Kyary Pamyu Pamyu is better. - ChatNoirFan18
