My two fave jbands is School Food Punishment and Bump of Chicken. Not many people i know have ever heard of them though o_O they are both kinda... indie, light rock, electro(?) but they are really good. like first time i heard school food punishment i was like "O.Owhere have you been all my life?"
Both are really good and i wanna spread them to people XD

If you are into heavy metal, you can't go wrong with Yellow Machinegun, Dir en grey, X Japan or Seikima II. A dream tour for me would be Seikima II touring with King Diamond.

I recommend Vocaloid music. Vocaloid is a computer software which comes with an artificial voice which can be used as a synthesizer. Sure if you're not into it, the voices are represented as anime characters, but the music can be very deep and truly expresses the emotion of the writers and composers. I believe Vocaloid music can deliver an experience like no other. You feel a true connection with other fans, because the idols are not human. Most songs are not commercially moved, so it really makes way for much creation and expression. I recommend the 6 main Crypton Vocaloids. They are Hatsune Miku, Rin Kagamine, Len Kagamine, Meiko, Kaito, and Luka Megurine. I will list some songs now.

-Hinekuremono
-Jugemu Shiikensaa
-Kocchi Muite Baby
-Kogane no Seiya Sousetsu ni Kuchite
-Koi Ha Sensou
-KuruKuru Mark No Sugoiyatsu
-Magnet (This feature Megurine Luka)
-Matryoshka (This one also has a non-Crypton Vocaloid, GUMI)
-Melt
-Miku Miku Ni Shite Ageruツ?エ
-Nightmare Party Night

It's fun to listen to Hoshino Gen. I like his "Himawari no Yakusoku" and "Koi dance".

These days I'm really into "Begin" and "Nakajima Miyuki"
