21 Nothing You Lose - Nightmare

I love everything about this song! Like, all the parts seem to fit perfectly :) Guitar solo, the bass, the drumming, and also yomi's voice just sounds amazing all together! Come on people vote vote vote!

This song is full of bass! Yomi's voice is wonderful! With beautiful lyric too!

This song is great I always sing it even if no-one knows what I'm saying and it's music was written by Ni~Ya (BASS) and he did a great job!

22 Mizerable - Gackt Mizerable - Gackt

Love him, and his music! He is just individual as his music. He is the best singer ever! Mizerable is a very beautiful song with the violin play - just listen and enjoy!

His songs always have meaning to something in our lives, Mizerable is one of them like the other songs written by him. My favourite forever is Tsuki no Uta, an beautiful song

even though it was his first solo single I think its the best. - TD17

It's simply full of emotion and his voice it's so majestic

30 XXX For You - D'erlanger

we need new songs like this, you go argue with me that this is popular, but there are very annoying people who pm me, lectured me but I heard these songs in japanese rock forums a lot and you can find lots of d'erlanger in japan and here because I want these bands to be popular as well - ronluna

kurenai is old and everyone who knows j-rock esp x knows it try something new and don't stick to one band, xxx for you is one of the main reasons why I love d'erlanger and that song introduced me to the band - ronluna

hard rock song from the visual-kei pioneer band D'ERLANGER. the songs on the list is softer than this - ronluna

just ask the new fans since 2007, they love this song - ronluna

31 Sign - Flow Sign - Flow

Never heard anything like this... Best ever song, I've heard so far. Whenever I listen to it, it starts controlling my mind and give me the perfect pleasure which a one can expect from a music track. Thumbs up to FLOW!

Definitely my favourite song by Flow of all time. I don't know about it being the BEST ever, since I haven't heard many of the other contenders at all, but this is my personal favourite for being simple pure rock music.

It worked so well with the pain invasion arc and it was amazingly done

This song is awesome! The voice of Masafumi just suits with the song! Guys just give this song a listen! It will just make your day!

34 Kanzen Kankaku Dreamer - One Ok Rock Kanzen Kankaku Dreamer - One Ok Rock

Each and every song is awesome. Try it.
Kanzen Kankaku Dreamer always gets the crowd moving into the beat. M/ never get tired of it.
One ok rock songs always have meanings and inspiring realizations. They're one of a kind

These are the kind of lyrics that encourage and do not tell you what to do. Also crowd favourite so it's a lot of fun live.

This song makes me want to dance and scream!

This song has so much energy it's contagious. You'll be jumping and spinning to the beats before you know it!

You know that feeling when you're watching Ruruni Kenshin and when it ends, you hear Taka's voice and the rest of the crew! Just superb!
