The Contenders: Page 19

361 Jewel
362 Glam Grammar
363 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

364 Nekodamashi
365 The Hiatus
366 Fuzzy Control
367 Ogre You Ass****

They're really, really good. I didn't know them back in 2010 when they toured in the US. I wish I knew! Hope they'll come again.

Nevermind the hilarious name. The band is seriously awesome. Japanese lyrics, some songs are quite poppy, but overall it's pretty powerful rock. Listen to "Kapo" and then try to get that groovy guitar riff outta your head! Unique vocals (Manabu Deto) is usually the fist thing noticed, though they're bloody impressive instrumentally as well.

Check out "Advantage" on youtube... Anything from the homely album or 100 nengo... You'll see what I mean.
I'd go to Japan just to see this band live.

368 Flower Flower

NEW BAND JAPAN ROCK DEBUTE ON MAY 2013 AT METRO ROCK, AND HAVE LEAD VOCAL 'Yui' (it was as YUI)

369 Envy

How did this band not even get mentioned? They make some of the most emotionally powerful and beautifully chaotic music I've ever listened to.

370 Devil Kitty
371 Blankey Jet City
372 Mongol800

If you like upbeat happy rock songs then this is the answer. Even though they are composed of three members, they sure play good!

373 Shazna
374 Eastern Youth
375 Memento Mori

It's a awesome band! They rock

376 AvelCain
377 Red Bacteria Vacuum

Really, no Red Bacteria Vacuum, come on people. Best band EVER!

378 Noodles

This is why you like J-Rock, bands like this. Only they are better then those other bands.

379 Doll$Boxx
