Number Girl, Tokyo Jihen (Incidents), BORIS

the pillows ruled when they were more rock than pop, perhaps they've gone soft with age (comparatively).

So far, I've only been jammin' out to Asian Kung-Fu Generation, since that I've just recently been introduced to JRock.

Anything else besides JRock, I will not say, because 95% of the bands I like aren't Japanese!

After reading these I think it is important to see that japanese rock is also in itself diversified :D so perhaps JROCk sometimes is not of a defining term sometimes different genre than just rock similar to USA genre of music. i think in example would be soft rock, alternative, heavy metal, hardcore etc. however i enjoy all types :)

I like the Number Girl suggestions. Very dark and hard. If you like them, also check out their (brainchild's) more recent project, Zazen Boys.

For something more punk-inspired, I would suggest the Garlic Boys. Don't know if they're still around, but they have a few really good albums.

Oh yeah a topic on J-Rock ! Let's add some link and artists.

One group that I discovered few time ago : Light Bringer. Here are some songs :
- 今にも落ちてきそうな空の下で ;
- Noah ;

Then comes A(エース) with :
- Black Butterfly ;
- Night of the Knights ;

Now it's important to don't omit older groups like :
- Maximum the Hormone : Buiikikaesu ;
- MoNoLith : 3月2日、桜色 ;
- Girügamesh : Break Down ;
- Exist † Trace : Resonance ;
- DaizyStripper : 月に銃声 ;
- The GazettE : The Invisible Wall ;

And there are a lot of groups ; what's cool is that when you see a video, on the other proposed you've an huge choice. Personally my favorites are Maximum the Hormone, MoNoLith, DaizyStripper and A (エース).

And the girl on my avatar is Miko, one of the guitarists from Exist Trace. ^^

Haha, my fave band is the GazettE but I love their heavier songs like Headache Man and Clever Monkey :3

You should check out Mejibray
Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas

And I love Existtrace, MTH and Light Bringer!

Girugamesh's new single Zantetsuken was freaking amazing!
GazettE is my life! :3
