2 Scandal

My favorite all female band. And I'm an American who doesn't understand a word of Japanese. That just proves how awesome they are.

I love their songs and they are so cool

Showing love from Los Angeles

All what I can say about them is Awesome!

Jyou's voice is so unique

They were my first jrock girl band, actually one of the first bands I listened to in general. I love them more than SCANDAL and DESTROSE.

Not just my favourite J-rock band - they're my favourite band of any kind!
Their songs are exciting, uplifting and have strong melodic structure - always more than just one hook per song; they experiment with different styles; extremely high level of musicianship; each one is a definite character; and they don't feel they have to wiggle their bits to get noticed, they let their music speak for them. All round 11 out of 10!

10 Stereopony

I don't listen to many female jrock bands, but I think Stereopony is awesome.

I love those that I have

My favorite Japanese rock band. Their music is fantastic (Aside from a couple songs, but that's it), and the band members are so talented. I wish they were still around and performing in the US.

I love their music, I love aimi voice

The Contenders

11 Aldious

How can Aldious be this far down? Ludicrous!
Ok there are a couple of dodgy songs *cough* without you *cough* but musically and vocally these ladies are tight...
Listen to "sweet temptation" and then change your vote...
You're welcome...

Simply the best

An all female band that plays power metal and the vocalist Re:No provides great vocal performance.

They are really good

18 Puffy AmiYumi
19 Mary's Blood

Very talented band. Saki is an amazing guitar player.

The best.

20 Unlucky Morpheus

Unlucky Moprhies is a Meldoic Power Metal band that features members from other high profile bands. They have one of the best drummers in Japan Fumiya of Galneryus, an oustanding Neoclassical guitarist duo Shiren and Jinya who often duo solo at amazing speeds(Founder of many Doujin Touhou bands), a Solid grooving Bass player Ogawa (music school teacher and Charm Park member), a vital member Jill the Violinist who provides this band unique melodic style and lastly the Powerful Opera esque voice one will recognize as Fuki(DollBox, Fuki Commune, exLightBringer). Together they make a powerful team and continue to impress fans with innovative ideas such as reverse music sheets or 4 arm bass solos!

22 Story of Hope

The Guitarist was so insane

23 Gacharic Spin

Each is extremely talented, so diverse and prolific. Not just their thrash stuff, even their synth pop, or their joke songs, all of it Rocks

Full of energy and hardworking, these funny young women always stay themselves! Their drummer is the lead singer.

24 FLiP

Laila is one of the best song I ever heard in my life. Many song of Flip are based on great riffs (if you like led zeppelin) with Sachiko's rough voice and result is a beautiful mix... Love!

25 Destrose
26 GallowS
27 Polkadot Stingray

30 MergingMoon MergingMoon
31 Torn
32 Kishidan Shu & the Akishin Rockets
33 Light Bringer

Upstream Children is one of their good song.

34 Band-Maid

I created an account just so I could add Band-Maid. Formed in 2013, they're a great all-female J-Rock band consisting of 4 members: Saiki and Miku are the vocalists, and Kanami and Misa are the instrumentalists. I've also seen Miku play guitar, but I think she's mainly a vocalist. Highly recommended. My second-favorite J-rock band behind Babymetal. My top 3 favorite songs by them are:
1. Glory
2. Daydreaming
3. Choose Me - boiii
