    Mmmmm~ i started off with Jpop... and then later grew interest in jrock and the kinda hip-hop side like m-flo and KREVA and them...
    Firstly i dun really know who fits in jrock coz i got some tunes that are really heavy and some more mainstream... but heres my contribution with my favourites listing first::

    - UVERworld (Great catchy tunes... D-TechnoLife was a BLEACH OP song... recommend 'Just melody.')
    - HIGH & MIGHTY COLOR (Also quite catchy but not that good if overplayed.. OP songs for Gundam Seed and BLEACH)
    - OLIVIA and ANNA TSUCHIYA in their releases for NANA
    - Do as Infinity (are they considered jrock?)
    - ORANGE RANGE
    - Nightmare
    - L'arc~en~ciel
    - ASIAN KUNG-FU GENERATION
    - GLAY
    - HYDE

    Jrock sucks. only good bands is Dir En Grey, boris and mono
    you guys seem to like bands that have played intro or outro songs for anime.

    First of all, i hate dir en grey after they started to copy too strong "american like music" and lost their "japanese root".
    Second of all, no i dont seem to listen to music from anime, but the truth is a lot of vk/jrock bands made intros for series.

    アリス九號. & RENTRER EN SOI & ギルガメッシュ & ガゼット= pure love <3

    Jrock is starting to grow on me, im liking Asian Kung Fu Generation, FLOW (they did two songs for my favourite anime of all time, Code Geass) and Orange Range (who also did a song for Code Code) ~ they're not heavy rock, but more alternative rock but its still nice ^^
