The Pillows.

Some of their songs were on the Anime mini-series FLCL, Furi Kuri, Fooly Cooly, whatever you want to call it.

Anyway, they're awesome.

what the ****? leave asian music for the asian people man, if you cant understand it then its obvious that you are only listening to it to be "different" and "cool". in my opinion, you are all stupid tryhards.

I can't understand half of American music! And I was most likely born here! Do I listen to American music that I can't understand to be different? No, I don't listen to American Music I can't understand.

Just because we don't speak Japanese/Korean/whatever, doesn't mean we can't enjoy a culturally different music, or a genre of music in a different language.

With the way you're complaining about us, you look like the "tryhard" as you put it.

Aye.

Also, look for the soundtrack for Trigun. It's amazing but more bluesy than I think you're looking for.

I never got into korean music (me being korean)

But a lot of j-rock isn't half bad. The pillows are a great band to look into as well
#26
i only really know Mad Capsule Markets, quite like them, diffrerent, kinda electric metal with mad poppy hooks, fun to listen to
#28
There are some good Japanese rock bands, like X Japan, The Pillows, Boredoms. I prefer traditional Japanese and Chinese music. I'd really like to learn how to play the shamisen. And speaking of it, you should check out The Yoshida Brothers. I'd also like to recommend a guy who's kind of like the Japanese Bob Dylan in my opinion, Kazuki Tomokawa.

Some people don't listen to music for the words, I listen to a lot of music in other languages just the the music.

And, some Asian people can speak English.

One group, and ONE only: The Pillows.

The rest of the Asian music has become a trend around here, with people looking like absolute tards and dressing up like Japanese 'shock rockers'.

I get great crowd reponse when I play pillows songs with my band.
Mainly the instrumentals and english ones, but sometimes I slip a japnese one in as well, and there is no problem. They don'r understand to it, but it's great music.

Ofcourse that's only like 15-45 people max.
