    • maguro part deux

      Best name has to come down to OGRE YOU ASSHOLE or My Hair is Bad.

      • Alva Starr

        The names is what I was looking at, too. haha

    • gck_

      So I am just here to encourage and beg y’all to vote for Soutaiseiriron/相対性理論 for BEST ALTERNATIVE ACT if you get the time to vote. I think they deserve at least one award for their contribution to indie/alternative music and having longevity as an independent band. If you can give them a listen, their tunes are on YouTube. Their music is a mix of new wave/jpop-rock/indie pop. The production is impeccable & the vocals are mostly soft but brilliant all around. I implore you Aramajapan readers and staff. You can do this Soutaiseiriron!!💪 (Though some artists are missing in this nomination list hmmmmm)

      GAH! I know all the Best Rock Artist nominees except 1. I like them all, but haven’t heard everyone’s latest stuff. For some, I don’t have access to their newest stuff. In general, RADWIMPS is my favorite Jrock artist & ONE OK ROCK ties for my #2. I have to listen to their albums again & try to be unbiased. o.O

      I’m glad Yojiro’s illion is also nominated in the Alternative category. I’ve been listening to the latest cd (P.Y.L) for the past month straight. (lead singer of RADWIMPS)
      BTW, for anyone in N. America. ONE OK ROCK is touring THIS MONTH for the new album. NY, Toronto, Chicago, LA, San Francisco, Seattle & then they’re back in Japan.

    • I hoped that Shadows will be listed either in Punk or Breakthrough categories… they more than deserve it with the two amazing EPs and their first tour full of sold out dates.
