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.

    The "J-" prefix not only signifies music from Japan, but also that the music plays a role in the wider Japanese music scene/industry. It effectively means "Japanese mainstream" or "Japanese mainstream-style", rather than being a nationality label.

    one ok rock is not a "J-Rock". this is "Rock from Japan"

    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.

    2014 years after Christ and people still think this is a music genre [3]

    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.
