No I have like maybe one or two because I like the music.

I don't think understanding the lyrics is important if you just like the music and the voice of the singer. Although good lyrics are really good thing as well.

It's not weird. It's music.

Music is how something resonates, the lyrics even without understanding are still beautiful over a good melody especially in Japanese...

What's odd is the fact that many J-Metal bands or rock try to sing in english, but most of it ends up being gibberish that could easily be corrected. BUT IT STILL SOUND AWESOME.

I have almost 6 different languages of music (Thai, Japanese, German, French, Cantonese, Finnish). Half I don't understand at all. There's some fantastic music out there, and it doesn't take understanding the lyrics to love them.

well I have UVERworld - D-tecnolife on my cell as a ringtone. I had to cut it and compress the crap out of it to get it as small as possible as my cell only has 10megs of space.

I currently have about 640ish gigs of music. (I am a DJ) and I don't think it's weird to put the songs you enjoy on anything!

I currently have: Die Antwoord, SuperCELL, Johnny Cash, MayheMM, and a few others on my phone and a ton of stuff on my tablet.

I don't have much J-Rock or J-pop, but I do listen to lots of "current" music from around the world.

Not wierd at all. I think probably half of the music I have on my phone is either in Korean or Japanese.

You don't have to know the lyrics to enjoy the songs. But sometimes it's a nice bonus and it makes you like them even more.

Nope! Not at all!

Then again, some of my friends get annoyed because they can't understand the words...so...I guess it goes both ways?

I have several songs in my phone that are in Japanese, though I understand only a small handful of words. I also have music in German, French, and Spanish, despite my limited understanding of those. The fact is, the sound of different languages adds another element to the enjoyment I get from music; I listen to genres in other languages (primarily Japanese) that I don't generally enjoy in English.
