Looking for music suggestions, similar to 2NE1, 4minute...

こんにちは!
I'm trying to increase the amount of Japanese I hear, so I want to listen to more Japanese music. I've started listening to a few K-pop girl groups recently and I like 2NE1 and 4minute most. I also like f(x) and certain songs from Girls' Generation.
Just wondering if anyone can give me suggestions on any Japanese groups that would be similar to these. I have just figured out how to use the Japan itunes store, so I'm going to buy a few of the above band's Japanese songs. But I'd love to find some new groups also. A lot of the J-pop music I've previewed seems to be a little prissy for me - maybe too pretty and soft I guess.
My fav English music includes Pit Bull, Black Eyed Peas, Eminem, Foo Fighters, as well as classic rock. Is Japanese rock/alternative music similar to our own, or does it tend to differ like the pop music does?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions - there are so many different things on iTunes and I don't know where to start :neutral:
