American bands singing in Japanese

Post by Gan » Wed 08.08.2007 11:13 am

Post some videos or songs or what ever of American bands singing in japanese. And discuss their japanese if you want. LOL

Here are a few

Good Charlottle: Predictable http://youtube.com/watch?v=sLYLM1Mttlw

Sixpence None The Richer: Kiss me http://youtube.com/watch?v=euj_oMyDpLE

Celine Dion: Be The Man http://youtube.com/watch?v=lZAqWbP0kp8

(I really really hate this song, but for the sake of this tread..)

Avril Lavigne: Girlfriend http://youtube.com/watch?v=c6YhaDA6fNc

Wow.... just wow....

They all kinda... suck. Pretty bad.

I usually wish Americans would try to sing in different languages just because I think it's cool, but damn, that was pretty bad. xP

Although, to be fair, the original songs aren't that great either ^_^''

I was about to say "What are you talking about; there's songs in Spanish everywhere" but then I remembered I live in Texas

You totally stole the song I was going to link... I'm even listening to 'Less Talk More Rokk' right now!
Sometimes I think that I'm afraid of thinking, and that scares me.

Didn't Madonna do a "Thank you" song or something that just had her saying Thankyou in different languages? I seem to remember it being pretty popular in Japan last year, but thankfully it dropped of the radar pretty quickly.

contrary to this topic - are there any other good Japanese rock bands that sing in English besides Ellegarden? :D
