Does anyone know any songs/albums that are centered around anime, like maybe the singer makes references to pokemon or something like that. I'm not talking about anime soundtracks or anime opening endings. Preferably non-japanese.

Here are some I know:

Josip On Deck - Senpai Gon Notice You: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sOIIFIVa1UI
^ Rap, hip-hop

T-TIME - #DESU: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ENDQBE7RElU
^ Rap, hip-hop

I'm in a band that writes songs about anime and gaming! We have done some anime theme covers, but we also write our own songs about anime. We're relatively new on Youtube so we haven't got too much up yet, but we've got loads coming soon! We're currently filming videos for a song about Gaara from Naruto, a song about Soul Eater, and a bunch more. For now, here's a song about Pokémon which is PACKED with Pokémon references - see if you can pick them all out!

Check out Richie Branson's site. He now has 3 volumes of anime inspired music. And all 3 are free.

Here are some more stuff I've found:

~ ~ MGC - Magical Girls Run the World:
http://audmonsters.bandcamp.com/album/magical-girls-run-the-world


Stumbled on this on Bandcamp, clicked on it because the cover looked cool. Pretty nice stuff, I dig.

Kinda reminds me of Ke$ha - if she decided to write about anime and being kawaii and shizz.

I recommend the track Kawaii Streets.

~ ~ Young Shoujo:
PK SUPERSTAR: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X7_KQSQYMtw

"tuxedo mask swag im everybodies senpai." - Hahahahaha, omg so much win.

~ ~ Boba Boyz - The Boba Boyz
http://thebobaboyz.bandcamp.com/album/the-boba-boyz

Their track "2 Sugoi 2 Die" is pretty good.

"Bought my first waifu when I was 18
Girls from strike witches are my main thing" - lmao.

omg that was friggin adorable. Man great job with the lyrics, also love that little solo at 3:13. I'm genuinely looking forward to seeing the next stuff you guys put out.

Before Steve Albini started producing he was in pretty big underground noise band called big black. There 3rd EP went by the name racer X named after the first song on the record. The song is about Speed Racers brother. If you search through albini discography one can reference to some of the sleazier parts of anime and manga.
