SixTONES debuted with #ImitationRain on their youtube channel on 12/25/2019 a beautiful song written by Yoshiki, performed by SixTONES. They made their way into the world and our hearts ever since. Weekly updates to their yotube page. They update their instagram page. Also being a Johnny band, they have blogs and update regularly on the johnny website. All the members in the band have also been in dramamtic series in japan, also movies and live stage acting. I played them on #iheartjrock the first time on my valentine’s day show, and it took some time but people noticed and have requested their songs ever since. I feel they are important part of japanese culture and i wish them all the best in 2021.

#2 Telephone Call me

#1 Navigator much love for this song, this video, the anime Billionaire Detective

Greetings #jrockers !! 2020 is coming to a close, but it indeed have some awesome music to make a soundtrack to. Weather you are at the gym working out, or driving over town , you can listen to the top #jrock #jpop #vk #anime #music #japan from 2020. I was shocked to not see Hyde and Dustz or a lot of other great music from this year. 10 just isn’t enough i guess. I did play a lot of AKIHIDE this year, but it was other years, not 2020. I hope you like the list of songs. Again there were tons of great songs that came out this year. All available to listen to throughout this website. One day I will find a way to make them more accessible. Thank you so much for your requests, and thank you so much for supporting music from japan and indie radio! Happy New Year !! Look forward to more great music from JAPAN !
