J-Rock Fridays Vol. 90

February 8, 2013

February, the month of love and snow storms!

Hotel Mexico- “Boy”

Hotel Mexico is back! It sounds like the singer decided to switch up his vocal style from high pitched to typical indie mumble for their first ever music video. See if you can make sense of the dolphins, fireworks and lesbians.

White Ash- “Would You Be My Valentine?”

Presenting the best J-Rock videos of the week…

GRAPEVINE- “Rakuen”

Leave it to GRAPEVINE to take a seemingly innocent song and make a traumatic video about a group of men up against the wall waiting to get gunned down. At least they went to “heaven.”
