Nah, the earliest music I've listened to J-music wise is from the 90s, mainly mid to late 90s, though I do admit I've heard like, a very few select songs that were covered by modern jpop groups in their 80s forms. But that's pretty much it. And I read a bunch about 80s idolgroups, it was kind of fascinating how different everything was back then, they were like the first wave of idols before the modern wota bait.

I was a "metalhead" through most of the 80s. Ironically, one of the bands that made me that way was a little Japanese Metal band named Loudness...

I guess shonen knife, Hantarash, and Boredoms came from that era. Those are all pretty good bands.

X Japan. Their work from the late 80's is awesome. Same goes for everything they made until 1996.
