Jrock is the short version for "Japanese rock", which includes Visual Kei, normal and alternative rock, but from Japanese bands. The term sometimes includes Japanese metal bands (such as Maximum the Hormone), but it's more rarely seen.
The most popular Jrock band in Japan is SID, but the GazettE has a lot of fans outside the country. They play Visual Kei and DOES plays normal rock in Japanese.

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
