When you think of Japanese music, rock music might not come to mind. However, Japanese rock music is a part of Japanese culture. When I talk about Japanese rock music I am not talking about English rock music listened to by the Japanese. I am talking about rock music that is performed by Japanese bands and written in the Japanese language.
Japanese rock music goes back almost as far as rock music itself. During the 1960's Japanese bands were building off of the psychedelic rock of the United States and elsewhere. The Japanese experimented with Space rock and other forms of rock music.
