I can´t say that I´m the biggest expert when it comes to rock music from Japan, although I did listen to some 80´s heavy metal bands from the east and enjoy some of the new alternative hard rock bands.
But I´m like a total vacuum to the J-pop scene, however that didn´t stop me from listing the top 10 artists from the land of Budokan and TDK cassette tapes.
