Best Japanese Rock Band

I'm sorry, but a list based on fanboy/fangirlism tends to be rather ridiculous. LUNA SEA #27? You have got to be kidding! When J says that there is no band like LUNA SEA, sometimes he tends to sound rather arrogant, but I don't mind. The man can back those words up. LUNA SEA is a band where ALL FIVE MEMBERS are independent of each other. This is a band in which each member can do very well without the others. Each one stands with so much strength on his own and with a completely different style from the other. When those independent, different styles come together, they transform each others' works to result in something beyond what one would have presented on his own. I keep reading about the other bands "Each member is so talented. " What happens when each member leaves the band? ALL MEMBERS OF LUNA SEA have already put that to the test AND HAVE SUCCEEDED (proof that they do not need each other to succeed because each one can easily do it on his own)! I still have to hear that about other bands. Each individual member's growth helped this band grow. It has been copied by others (heck, early L'Arc~en~Ciel was like a copy of LUNA SEA! Hyde totally copied the long haired, drunken sounding Ryuichi! Tetsu was like a copy of Sugizo. Young ken had a bit of J in his look. Even hyde mentioned going to Tokyo and watching LUNA SEA during the early Laruku days. ) but has never been equaled. This band deserves to occupy the top spot.
If Luna Sea is not in the top ten in this list... this list is stupid. I love X Japan but c'mon there style never evolve (Dhalia: 1997 album containing singles from 1993 and the sound of this album nothing out of the ordinary)(Still would put them around the 3rd position), The Gazette: Its awesome that this guys have crossover to the US but that is about it. Nightmare, SID and SKIN are you serious... c'mon fanboy you can do better then this. Janne Da Arc: awesome guitarist but I haven't heard something worth putting in top ten. Never heard of UVEworld. Laruku first stuff was out of this world but their latest album have been half ass work (I still would put them in top ten). Dir en grey and Asian Kung Fu I agree in the spot they are. As for Luna Sea I would rate them number one and let the music do the talking (forget what they look like and diva attitudes, jut listen to the music)
What? No. 27? You must be kidding me. Have people simply never heard of this amazing J-rock legend or are most people that vote just some random anime fanboys and fangirls that only listen to anime theme songs?
Luna Sea is a very influential band, their music is unique and they are all very talented indeed (if you watch their live DVDs you will know what I mean). They always sound perfect live with amazing technique that often surpasses their CDs. You never hear Ryuichi sound bad live (as opposed to Hyde from L'arc en ciel), and Sugizo's guitar technique is world class! Not to mention Shinya's drumming technique which blends well with the songs, with a strong sense of rhythm yet difficult drum beats, as well as Inoran's unique arpeggios.
I strongly recommend this band for those of you who have never heard of their music, especially now that they are finally reunited to produce more music! I really look forward to their upcoming original album in 13 years which I hope will be released this year (2013)!
What the...? Luna sea is the best! You know, luna sea can make it genre, like mix the punk rock with blues, or rock with pop. Luna sea should be in the first because it is the grandfather for visual kei genre. Luna sea I think is the visual kei blue print. Listen another band, and then listen the luna sea, another framework song are adapted from luna sea! This list is stupid enough!
Luna Sea is a superior act on all accounts. Take every element necessary to create a great band and then turn the dial to 11 on every account. Luna Sea is a legendary act and the only way they are not #1 can only be reasoned through ignorance. There music is deep, haunting, warm, and soothing. It is emotion redefined. I implore every person who reads this list to discover Luna Sea. They are and will always be the greatest band in existence.
I love Luna Sea! They are amazing, Ryuichi�'s voice, Sugizo, Inoran, J, Shinya they combine their talents to create music versatile and full of personality, passionate and amazing. The monster rock band!
Gazette #1? Silly online fans. LUNA SEA and X-Japan (and DEAD END and BUCK TICK) are obviously the most influential out of these bands. Except popularity-wise it's LUNA SEA and X-Japan. Except in terms of how productive & creative they were, LUNA SEA definitely wins.
Legends of j-rock... And their musical diversity is amazing. Songs full of emotions. This band deserves to be in the top ten. If it was my list, they sure will be in the top 5. I'm sure they are the role models for many bands today.
This should be in the top 10 list along with laruku, x japan, malice mizer and alice nine.
Seen them performed LIVE - they are professional. That's everyone of them in the BAND.
5 guys...5 styles... Luna sea... Just god...
