I've been making a weeb mix for myself to listen to. I have a bunch of songs that I like and I just discovered Teddyloid and am pretty blown away by his stuff. And, I really just ran into his stuff by chance. So, I was hoping that everyone could post what weeby music they like here and hopefully it will make find great tunes easier.

Just in case you don't know what I mean by weeby, I mean anything Japanese media related (for example: OP songs, Nintendo remixs, Original songs from Japan, etc... just whatever.)

I love Vocaloid music. I have watched a few of the Monogatari series and like the music from them. Namely Bakemonogatari opening presentation with Kana Hanazawa - Renai Circulation. So, I'll diffidently check out Utamongatari. I've never heard of ONE OK ROCK and Sekai no Owari, I'll check them out as well. Thank you very much!

I listen to a lot of Love Live. Like, a lot. But when I'm not listening to them, I'm playing supercell, EGOIST, Yanagi Nagi, YuRiCa, Aimer, other J-Pop things like that.

I'm also a big fan of composers too. Hiroyuki Sawano makes a killer soundtrack (Attack on Titan, Kill la Kill, Kanberi, as does Yuki Kajiura. (F/SN, SAO, also founding member of Kalafina.)

I can't really do vocaloid though. Just... Microsoft Sam. That's all I hear.

Here's a few of the Japanese bands that I listen to sometimes.

Suiyobi no Campanella
Inshouha
Seiko Oomori
Frederic
DAOKO
Kinoko Teikoku

Just thought I'd give two cents. I'd give more input but I feel like my tastes are a little different from yours. Hope it helps though!

I don't know what kind of music taste you have but I gotta plug Malice Mizer, my one true love of Japanese bands. Pretty unique sound, a lot of fun. A favorite of mine as a preteen and well gosh I still love them to death.

If you give them a try I'd start with the Gackt albums Voyage ~Sans Retour~ and Merveilles, they're both good, solid, consistent albums.

At the very least if you don't like them their photos and concert videos are a hoot, so check 'em out. Visual kei at it's height.

I know of stereopony, Asian Kung Fu Generation, Sekai no Owari, Supercell, ONEOKROCK, Flow, Golden Bomber (not too sure if you can consider them weeby though, same with Sekai no Owari)

I actually never used to listen to this kind of music, but when I decided to take Japanese in college, my friend/ tutor recommended some bands to listen to for practice and I kind of like it now.

OH, and don't forget BABYMETAL and Ladybaby lol

Really, the only music I currently listen to from time to time that could be considered "weeabooish" are the OSTs from Gurren Lagann and Panty and Stocking (moreso the former). I haven't actually listened to anything that could be considered outright weebish (J-pop/rock, Vocaloid, etc) in several years, tho'.

I see a lotta people have made some great suggestions though, particularly The Seatbelts; I'm shocked I haven't listened to them aside from friggin' TANK!
