When did you get into Jrock?

Post  KamikazeKumi on Tue Aug 02, 2011 11:15 am

Ok, so lets expand our conversations to the broader topic of Jrock in general.
When did you get into Jrock music? How? Who was your first band you heard/got into?

For me, I was about 13/14 years old, and into, like really heavy rock music/metal. My best friend was listening to Jpop from video games, like FF X2 & Kingdom Hearts -Ayumi Hamasaki and Koda Kumi and I was going freaking nuts with her playing that all the time. So I yelled at her and asked her if she had any non-pop music, and she played me Cage by Dir en grey. My reaction "Wtf is this shit? >.<" Cage was too soft for me and I was certainly not used to the Visual Kei look and sound since I listened to north American death metal at the time. So then she sent me Miyavi - Jibun Kakumei. I was in love. Something about his imperfect voice, raw sound, and spazztic-ness and blue hair, I was hooked. I got into other bands after that, and eventually got into Visual Kei (and after I heard other songs by DEG I became a HUGE fan and still love them today, Cage still isn't my fav song but I don't hate it by any means XD)

What about you guys?! ^-^

When I was like... 8? I think? XD A friend of mine moved to Japan, and our school allowed us to be pen pals [since we had mandatory pen pals in grades 1-5]. She always sent me a tape of what her brother was listening to, cause at that age I wanted to be just as cool as him XP Lol. One of the first tapes she sent me had X Japan on it, and I fell in love with it. She kept sending me their music and a bunch of other bands, including LUNA SEA, and she got me addicted. Eventually we lost touch, but she kept sending me tapes every time we wrote. A lot were indies bands that only played small venues, or never released any official albums/singles,

For me, it's about 2 years ago, with Miyavi-wonderful world, i don't know, how i have found this song, but i liked this song since the first moment, i have listen, so i tried another song by miyavi. And after another artist and again and again, until i found Golden Bomber by a video when i see them when i see them doing the idiots.

Everyone has better stories than me haha.
2 years ago I was bored with all the music I was listening to (I really likes Finnish/Swedish rock) and my friend showed me Miyavi because he thought he would interest me. I thought it was weird at first but later that night I started going on a youtube spree and found a lot of bands I liked. So yeah, that's sort of it. Grew from there. Now I'm not so, "I can only listen to Jrock!" (I KNOW YOU ALL HAVE GONE THROUGH THIS DO NOT DENY IT lol) but I keep to my favorites. ^-^
