ONE OK ROCK 


The music video for じぶんROCK actually kind of has a story. It’s told in the form of cartoons. Don’t worry though; there’s the typical band footage too :P .

It’s a pretty simple video, but still nice.

 

C.h.a.o.s.m.y.t.h. is from ONE OK ROCK’s new album Zankyo Reference. The guitar intro sounds suspiciously familiar. The song starts out all ballady, but the chorus has more energy. Good song.

About the pronunciation of the band name, ONE OK ROCK is an Engrish stylized version of “one o’clock”, which was the time the band used to practice.

 

I’ve just recently started listening to ONE OK ROCK. What I’m looking for is a High and Mighty Color replacement and those are some big shoes to fill. I’ve only randomly listened through some songs while riding to work, so I haven’t really formed my final opinion on this band yet. Some songs are good, others not so much.

One song I do like is NO SCARED. It was used as the intro song for the Black Rock Shooter PSP game (which I haven’t played), but could easily have been used for an anime opening as well.

The video is funny with the contagious headbanging :lol: . At first I thought it was just going to be a boring studio video.

One thing I’ve noticed about this band is that there’s a lot of English in the lyrics. The songs still have that Japanese sound though (which is good).

Feel free to post the titles of your favourite ONE OK ROCK songs in the comment section. It’d be helpful since I’ve just started listening to them.
