can anyone recommend me some Japanese music? I'm learning Japanese and I want something that's easy to understand.
my tastes are more towards metal but I like a of rock and might even delve into pop if it has a good singer.
Here's some bands I know of and what I think of them:
X Japan- not too big on the ballads but I like the heavier metal stuff like kurenai
Gackt- I like the song Redemption. That's about it most of the stuff sounds the same.
L'Arc~En~Ciel- were alright. Don't know what songs are best though.
Onmyouza- I liked the song I heard
Blood Stain Child- I don't like techno
Maximum the Hormone- I couldn't get into them.

For rock music, go for...

TETRA-FANG: This is a band made for a tokusatsu show named Kamen Rider KIVA. Its notable feats were their creative use of violins in a rock music, especially in their first song: "Destiny's Play", for sake of the vampiric Kamen Rider. Other notable songs of that band were:
Supernova
Eternity Blood
Innocent Trap
Individual-System
Shout in the Moonlight
Silent Shout
Rainy Rose (their first stunt in singing mellow songs)

Galneryus: For me, this is the Japanese counterpart of "Thursday" in terms of their song titles and themes. Notably named are:
Cause Disarray
The Flame
Mark of the Revolution (?)

As for J-Pop, I now prefer Chiaki Ishikawa (from See-Saw & whether anime or not), Riyu Kosaka (famed also for singing the songs for Sky Girls OVA & Kamen Rider the NEXT), Yui Makino & Mamiko Noto

^The Pillows

Also Yellow Magic Orchestra is the best. Not much in terms of vocals, and few of the more "pop-ey" songs are on Youtube, but whatever. ;)

man is it possible for any Japanese dude to look like the dude from Acid Mothers Temple (Kawabata Makoto)

because that would be awesome if that was the default style for Japan

and you should listen to Yellow Magic Orchestra it's like the precursor to all game music

Some of their stuff is really good, while others is bleh. But overall they're listenable.

The Pillows and Serani Poji are the only ones that are listenable, and Serani Poji is only really good for chilling out when driving and/or trying to take a nap.
