    There are actually 2 Japanese Nightmare bands : the badass one (Hardcore Punk) and the gay one (watered down Visual Kei with no soul). The second is giving the first a really bad name...

    I've loved the Japanese Nightmare for years, but man after checking out the French Nightmare, I have to say that I'm very impressed. Haven't run into a good new power metal band in a long time.

    No one band using the same name is inherently better than another, they just appeal to different tastes. That said, this situation with the j-rock band being the main picture is ridiculous. Read the biography people: "For the Japanese visual rock band Naitomea, see ナイトメア." It could not be much clearer.

    v A dubious claim. The Japanese hardcore band fucks shit up.

    Only the French band has the ferocity and power to be truly named Nightmare. The rest are just trying to be badass(and failing).

    I really couldn't give a damn if people want to scrobble ナイトメア as Nightmare. Their business if they want errors in their library. What I do care about is going to my library and seeing a picture of ナイトメア when they have their own page where they fans can upload and vote up as many pictures of them as much like and not be a bother to people listening to the French Nightmare, who actually belong and have a right to be on this page.

    The original Japanese punk band Nightmare from the 80's best. I can't lie though. I fuck with the visual kei band sometimes.

    Its a pain in the ass to change all my nightmare songs to ナイトメア, and that being because they are not my only japanese band, I dont know how to read kanji at all, and I dont want to mess it so... I will stay with nightmare just like that
