Darkgoddess18, I was referring to Japanese music artists, not artists in general. Sorry for the confusion.

I don't listen to much JMusic (still getting my feet wet), so these are pretty mainstream.

L'Arc en Ciel
S.O.A.P.
Tetsu69

And... yeah. That's about it. Pretty much L'Arc and their variants, if you'd call them that. :/

I've only heard/listened to maybe 3 bands.

Sex Machineguns (thanks dheu)
The Pillows
L'arc~en~Ciel

And all I can say is that it reminds me of American rock, but it has japanese lyrics and vocalists. Otherwise? Meh, differences are slim to nil.
