    J-rock was my first taste of japanese music and I gotta say, the taste was brilliant.

    Abingdon Boys School
    Alice Nine (I prefer their older stuff, but their new stuff is pretty cool too)
    Ayabie
    Dir en Grey
    Gackt (Not so sure about him being a band, but oh well)
    Gazette (First J-rock band I listened to and the band that got me started on this wonderful experience)
    Glay
    hide
    Janne Da Arc
    Judy and Mary
    Kagrra,
    L'arc~en~Ciel
    Luna Sea
    High and Mighty Color
    Malice Mizer
    Imitation POPS uchuu sentai NOIZ

    Are you giving me a cookie for listening to Alice Nine or just because I like their older stuff better? :lol:

    Because you're listening to them, of course. Doesn't matter if you like only their older stuff. 8D

    X Japan is one of the first j-rock bands/visual kei bands I've listened to. I'm starting to to listen to them again, especially watching Weekend from the last live. God, that performance was godlike. I'd love to go to the one in New York, but seeing that I live on the other side of the United States and school starting around that time, it's definitely a no. :cry:

    (late reply because... well I wasn't here for the last 3 months or something :p)

    This is something I want to talk about too, most of the people think something like: J-pop is girls, J-rock is boys, while that's very untrue... In fact the main problem I have with it is that people normally bind J-rock to only Visual Rock, and while Visual Rock is a substyle, they aren't really everything about it.

    Some Rock I love/like, with voices made by girls, that haven't been mentioned even once on this thread:
    GARNET CROW
    Kamiki Aya
    buriguri/Tommy Heavenly6
    Eu Phoria (they're kinda popish too, but take Laruku as an example)
    Amano Tsukiko
    Aikawa Nanase
    Hoshimura Mai
    Maria
    Do as Infinity
    Mizrock
    ikimonogakari
    Shiina Ringo

    ^Tomiko Van from Do As Infinity is amazing. Now she's going solo, and she's still great.

    ^ Problem with Tomiko Van is that she hasn't had any releases since 2006, except her cover albums, which make me wonder if she's going to continue releasing stuff as solo...

    Amazing she is nonetheless.

    D's first single is awsome as expected

    I have addicted to the visual kei rock band - Versailles, after watching the hide memorial summit.
    They are so awsome because they got the HIZAKI and KAMIJO combo, great vocal follow by strong and smooth guitar solo.

    They are going to release the debut album - Noble, in July. If you don't know anything about them, you may listen to their debut single - The Revenant Choir http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5827EPsAOis Yes it is a full English song with two Japanese lines, but excellent Engrish listening skill is required to fully understand the lyrics.

    Yep I think Jrock is everyones first step or introduction to Japanese music from movie and drama soundtracks.

    Personally it doesn't matter what language the lyrics are in as long as there's good solid beat and rhyme from instruments being actually played.

    Yes I listened to the song, and I couldn't understand a word Kamijo sings until I read the lyrics. And I was shocked to realize that the whole lyrics is in English (yep with those two Japanese lines). I thought he sings in Japanese. Kamijo's English pronounciation is reaaally bad. :lol:
