Japanese rock, or J-Rock, is a group of distinct styles that draw mainly from rock, and are native to Japan. There are many groups within this broad genre. A few styles include, but are definitely not limited to: heavy metal, indie (not to be confused with Indies, an English term usually meaning independent Visual-Kei or Angura-Kei artists) and punk.

    Seriously... if you think j-rock is a useful tag, then at least don't just tag Visual kei bands with it. As much as I like Vk... not all japanese music is Visual kei and in fact Vk is pretty unpopular and unimportant in Japan.
