J-Rock Fridays Vol. 17

April 2, 2010

It’s Good Friday.  Praise the Lord for J-rock.

Sekai no Owari- “War Rainbow”

OMG I can’t stop laughing.  This is like showing up to your baby cousin’s birthday party wasted.  Did they seriously think having their DJ wear a clown mask was a good idea?  And yes, he does wear the mask live.  The things I find at 3 in the morning…

Scars Borough- “Bed Spring Symphony”

Why do rocker chicks always look like dykes?  Kyoko looks scary as hell in this video, but still a solid rock song.  Their first album Feel the Stroke is finally coming out next week.

Live Clean Stay Young- “Nagaremon”

Only awesome bands animate themselves.

Her Name In Blood- “Decadence”

Johnny Cupcakes bakes on the first date?  Okaaaaay.  This video manages to pull off every cliche of the hardcore scene to comedic effect.  I expect these guys will make a splash overseas very soon.

Ajisai- “Sparkler”

Here’s your slow jam for the week.  This song is just begging to be in a J-drama.  And the band named themselves after a flower so there you go.

Nubo- “Easy Come, Easy Go”

Is there no truer saying in this world?  My tax return is half gone and I still haven’t been to Romey-Rome!


Short week.  Neaux already covered everything else I saved on YouTube, and probably better, so see you next time!

  2. Sparkler is indeed the perfect song for a some drama or emotional anime or something. Decadence was also hilarious!
