An kick ass Japanese band who did most, if not all, (I think(, music for the anime FLCL (Furi Kuri, Fooly Cooly, etc.) Have I think 10 albums released and still going strong. They're nothing like other JRock. Listen to them, cos they're cool. Ride on Shooting Star is the best song in the world. Honest.
GLAY, L'Arc~en~Ciel and dir en grey can SO not compete with The Pillows.
