Term used to describe Japanese rock music. As far as I know, this term is actually rarely used in Japan; most use the term "J-POP" instead. Many groups that are referred to as "J-Rock" also fall into the category of Visual Kei (for example, Luna Sea, Malice Mizer, Gackt, Moi Dix Mois, Nightmare, and others). A major element in Visual Kei is flamboyant, eccentric, and feminine (less common nowadays) costumes. To be driven away by "freakiness" of many of these groups is very foolish, as one would miss out on a beautiful form of music
