The Contenders: Page 12

221 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

225 The Kiddie
226 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!

227 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

228 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!

229 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

230 Melt-Banana
231 Monkey Majik

A band of great variety from Rock to Jazz, so much to enjoy.

Great band, not exactly hard rock but great music

Good good, love it

232 Perfume

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

233 Plus

Great song for hitman reborn ending

234 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.

235 New Breed

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

236 Followbane
237 Esprit D'Air

These guys ROCK. I have not heard music as unique as theirs in such a long time!

Wonderfully produced, quality music... You must check them out!

The most talented independent band I have ever heard. If you haven't already, you should check out "The Hunter" and "Shizuku". The drummer Daishi also makes all the beautiful artwork. They are all true inspirations. - annagu00fcneu015f
