Does anyone else here listen to JROCK/JPOP, or am I the only one? Anime soundtracks only count if you can identify the artists singing them.

ie. Rahxephon OST 'Hemisphere' was sung by Maaya Sakamoto.

Not as such, however "Mad Capsule Markets" held my attention for awhile, I seem to remember them being very good.

I saw some "other" J-Pop style bands on some show about Japan some months ago...and it wasn't bad, but it had a very "fake" feel to it, not my cup-o-tea but quite novel and I'm sure a lot of people enjoy it

My Brothers just moved to Japan, if this thread had come along a few months later I may have had a veritable monolith of reccomendations, but as it is, Mad Capsule Markets is all that comes to mind.

Acid Mothers Temple are awesome. An compilation album by them called 'do whatever you want, don't do whatever you want' has songs by them, spin offs from AMT and other Japanese bands. I recommend it if you're fishing around for bits and bobs.

I had a CD by a metal band called Cocobat it was pretty cool ,all the songs were sung in English or Spanish and i am sure they were Japanese

Well, here's some decent j-rock bands that I can think of off the top of my head right now, and are in my playlists:
Porno Graffitti
Luna Sea
Cains Feel
Tokyo Jihen
Malice Mizer
Sex Machineguns

Two cool Japanese songs which comes to my mind right now

Champloose - Jing Jing (Firefly) (Ry Cooder : electric bottleneck guitar)


Champloose - Subete No Hito No Kokoro Ni Hanna O (Flowers For Your Heart) - (with Tomoko Kina: vocals + Ry Cooder: acoustic guitar, electric bottleneck guitar, flat mandolin)

From Bloodline
