J-rock

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.

    Who gives a gnarley ass about whether this a genre or not. It's a good measure. It just sounds better to say "J-Rock" than "Rock from Japan".

    But it is. Their song color are different from conventional rock.

    Not a genre. I've even seen Corrupted tagged with this, and beyond the country of origin, they have nothing in common with pretty much all of the artists here.
