341 Mechanical Teddy
342 Oceanlane
343 Strawberry Song Orchestra

I don't know too much about this bunch, but from what I can tell, their shows are a theatrical performance, and a lot of their videos are quite visually-kei as it were. They describe themselves as "freak punk" or something, I guess that could be a good description if you know what they're all about. They're not punk musicians though, they much more talented haha. I can't really describe their sound actually, but it's like if Turbonegro had pianos and beautifuly catching female backing vocals over the top. I think their earlier stuff was just basic punk though. Anyway they had a 2009 album called Chi No Ranshou, and a 2010 single called Setsudan No igaku, and quite simply, you have to hear this band. I'd love to see them live.

351 Remming

They have a romantic music and songs. The soloist beautiful with a gentle voice. I adore their songs. They are the best!

352 Lulu

If you've ever seen them live you'll know that they basically blow every other band out of the water. Especially that vocalist, Taa.

353 Heartless

Though they also broke up, it is all the same possible to continue them to listen.

354 Kiyoharu V 1 Comment
355 Mind Blank
357 Guitar Wolf

Guitar Wolf is the coolest mofo that ever set foot on the planet earth. The best punk since the Ramones. The most raw and sincere rock and roll ever.

358 Jewel
359 Glam Grammar
360 Guitar Vader

Easily one of my favorite J-Rock bands. They have a very poppy sound, but they are still rock in my book. They had a song featured on the Sega Dreamcast game Jet Grind Radio
