221 Love Psychedelico

Nice sound. Reminds me a lot of American retro. I could listen to this group forever.

222 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!

223 Alsdead

Oh my goodness, alsdead is an amazing band their music is like sex to your ears I recommend every song. Listen to their music and you will be amazed. No really their music is really good. Strong beats, meaningful lyrics and a touch of screamo. Good music for thoses who love a blend of screamo and Japanese.

Just amazing music and superb vocals. They should way up there!

Puzzle and Pandemic are awesome

224 D (Night of the Children)
225 Lolita 23q
226 Unlimits

227 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

231 The Kiddie
232 Lycaon

I only learned about them today! I was watching UK band "Evile" on YouTube, and Lycaon was "suggested" Oh yeah! It's like I was watching the future; their songs are so tight... With attitude... Melody not sacrificed like many metal bands feel they must avoid-to be metal. I'm just late to the Lycaon party is all...!

They rock and the vocalists screamos are so awesome! Check out Plug Into The Socket! It's AWESOME!

233 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

234 Zuck

Zuck are a fairly new band! Maybe they aren't well-known
but they are good musicians! The sound is really good! I think that at least deserves to be on the list.
the band is former for : yuu (vocal) and Tsukasa (guitar)
Drummer Taiga and bassist Hayato left in 2011 in October.
even so Zuck will launch their first album in july
encourage to Zuck!

Zuck is a fantastic new band. They may be only two now, their work is also really great. Their music is able to make people feel so happy. That's why I love them. Please, listen to their more! Encourage them!

235 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

236 Melt-Banana
237 Perfume

Amazing music by some of the best musicians I have ever heard

238 Plus

Great song for hitman reborn ending

239 Acidman

These guys have got such a unique sound. One minute they're coming at you with fast riffs and insane drum work, the next they're settling you down with a relaxing, jazz-like sound. They've got some of the most emotionally raw music out there, and the fact that ACIDMAN is only #229 is criminal.

240 New Breed

New breed if phenomenal at what they do. They have made a great new genre and I hope they keep going on.
