I'm shocked that they have over 10 million views on YouTube.
What's so good about them?
Why are these guys this popular?
I seriously don't get it.
Because they're easy to understand
Ahhh, so that means they're for gradeschoolers?
They create dark pasts every time they sing
I LOL at how many kids there are these days who think that these guys are the origin of rock. Fans of these guys appear all over YouTube and comment on the videos of other bands, saying that they just copy ONE OK, etc.
Don't categorize ONE OK ROCK together with the other bands out there.
They're similar to Western music, rather, it finally feels like Japan now has a sound that it can be proud of to the rest of the world.
They will be carrying the Japanese band scene on their shoulders from now on, so pay attention to these guys.
Seriously now, they have some songs which I think were done really well.
I don't want to listen to them though since my girlfriend who cheated on me used to listen to them like crazy, though.
As long as he doesn't force others to do the same.
Those vocals have exceeded the limits of what the Japanese person can do.
That's also true with the refined lyrics that may seem unpolished.
Now this is I think what you call emo.
They're like the entry point to Western music tailored for the Japanese people.
If you start getting used to them, they're actually pretty embarrassing.
They do play good music, but they don't tug one's heartstrings.
That's also true for Yu-min and MisChil.
I liked ONE-OK before the guitarist (their previous member) had that sexual harassment case.
The guitarist now is so lame.
Stop gazing at your shoes all the time...http://kzn1.up.d.seesaa.net/kzn1/image/hSKWglSXdDXjZ8y1370139561_1370139564-thumbnail2.png?d=a12
It's like they're injecting some life into the Japanese music scene that's been stagnating for a while now.
I feel like, "Yeah, this is how rock should be", about them.
The music scene does need bands like these who are popular with the youngsters.
I actually like them, but there seems to be a lot who don't
They do have some good songs but the fans are trash
So how do you pronounce their name?
Wan - okay - rock?
It's the type that delinquents listen to with smug looks on their faces
I tried listening to them, but the lyrics are just...
The guitars and the bass might not be so good, but I hope people recognize how good the drums and the singing ability are.
I do think ONE OK's cool, but they feel somewhat shallow
Who's more popular then, UVER or ONE OK?
The drum parts are really challenging when you try to play their songs.
And there are tons of songs where the vocalist uses a high-C pitch, I think his singing ability's on a pretty high level.
I don't dislike ONE OK.
I just hate their die-hard fans.
ONE OK loves to use English.
I'd rather listen to Western music than ONE OK.
The drummer's really good, but the guitar's shi+, the lyrics are gross, and the fans stink.
No wonder they also get a lot of haters.
My impression is that the vocalist just pulls them up.
The lyrics are embarrassing too.
I like them though.
There really are a lot of people here who don't understand them.
Mixing Japanese in together with English is what makes ONE OK good.
You see some Japanese bands singing the entire song in English, right? That's no good.
You will be able to feel the Japanese sense of emo because of these Japanese lyrics.
Though it's been said over and over, I think the drums and the vocals are good. I also like their songs.
But their worshippers are pathetic.
There are a lot who are only after the looks.
I think I understand why they're popular.
Must be something similar to Bump.
Isn't this band just all about the atmosphere that they create?
I don't like them since they sound too Western these days
I got surprised at how their fans suddenly grew in number after "Kanzen Kankaku Dreamer"
This isn't the first time that VIP-ers started bashing the popular ones.
I prefer Anime songs though.
I listened to a number of their songs, but they sound so similar
I think this thread only exists for marketing purposes, or for believers and haters to emphasize their points.
The regular fans will just go the the band forums or the Japanese music boards. They don't want any unnecessary mudslinging.
Well, no matter what you guys say, there's still no changing the fact that they're popular.
I don't like ONE OK that much, but I find the people who always come to threads like this to look down on others and say they're listening to minor bands much more pathetic.
Well, just listen to what you like
