permalink I'm sorry to all of their fans out there but I think DIV is super overrated their music just doesn't seem that ground breaking to me same with ONE OK ROCK I like a couple songs from both bands but not many that's just my opinion though please don't hate me!
As for underrated bands xTRiPx and Purple Stone are super underrated!

permalink I am a BIG FAN OF DIV... but DIV songs are overrated.... And underrated are... xTRIPx and UNiTE

Though there are more bands that more overrated than DIV such as the GazettE, SID, L' arc n ciel... Etc.....

(Though we need to face the truth that DIV is not an UNDERGROUND band.. But still I love them <3)

permalink Alright, I'm so so very sorry but I've gotta get this out of my system..
I seriously think the Gazette are overrated. Their fanbase is so huge but when I went to listen to their music I really wasn't that impressed.. (I'm not gonna say anymore than that..)
Okay.. feel free to kill me

Not sure about underrated bands..

permalink I think the main point of an Overrated band is that they become extremely popular but do not get effectively better, or even keep up the pace of their previous albums and videos and that in my opinion are bands like ..
Gazette and dare i say An Cafe

underrated group i think are like

Art Cube and Psycho le Cemu

permalink i found the gazette has lost their fizz. Everytime I see them its like D&G models. instead of jrock gods. I think many bands are still popular because they have a history. Sale wise the groups are failed.

permalink The most overrated is GazettE. When they come out with new songs I personally don't think their style really changed. I got tired of their songs since it never really interested me anymore. OOR is also overrated as well as UVERworld. There are more overrated ones.

As for underrated there is quite a lot and I think DELACROIX, Administrator, レイラ, and Sel'm are some. (Two if these bands are disbanded)

permalink I cant even afford Gazette merch. Im kinda leaning towards SuG music being overrated. Their musics kinda gown downhill but they still dont flood the the tv screen. Same with GOlden Bomber. Musically, theyre still good but they've become too much of a product :(

permalink Thank you! Finally someone agrees with me, like after Cassis I think everything pales in comparison. For their newest album I only look forward to half of it based on the preview. And yesh :3 i was really surprised by how much i liked them :D And it's actually Mamo from R-Shitei <3

permalink Westerners seem to overrate those bands that sing in understandable English, which invariably sound not so different from American alt rock. I can see why it happens, though: people start with what they're familiar with. I did the same, but it happened to lead me to Ajikan instead. So no hard feelings to Ellegarden fans.

I'm tempted to pick Bakudan Johnny as an underrated band. I usually describe them as having broad appeal, but they also put a lot of energy into their songs, making them quite lovable. Also, some mostly instrumental bands have a tendency to be overlooked. I can think of haisuinonasa, LITE and rega.

permalink I love the GazettE but they are overrated. I love them but that is the truth.
Alice Nine, UVERworld, An Cafe, Hyde, L'arc en Ciel. I think SCANDAL is slightly overrated. Magistina Saga is an underrated band.

permalink I agree. GazettE is overrated.. I'm a major fan but they seem to have gotten god-like status in jrock..

MEJIBRAY is underrated, they need more attention, they are so talented and creative. ザアザア/Xaa Xaa is underrated too. They don't get that many views or much attention, maybe because they are new-ish. Same with The Gallo. Some japanese music companies should spend more money on PR.

permalink Overrated: An Cafe, Gackt, LM.C, Nightmare, Scandal, SuG (I actually think SuG are complete crap... I know, bite my head off, but they are. On the rare occasion that they do release a good song, Takeru often has to ruin it with his god-awful rapping. Haah, sorry, I really needed to get that outta my system!) Underrated: DELUHI, Moran, The Black Mages. Juri has, without a doubt, the best voice in J-rock, and Leda plays the best guitar, which is fitting, considering the fact that DELUHI are the best band in J-rock. There is a serious shortage of Japanese jazz rock bands such as Moran! I know people who play Final Fantasy, but barely any who know The Black Mages.

permalink I think Overrated: OOR (when I used to hear them It wasn't like this but a few years later they became so commercials and obviously their music was the same as other groups of american rock), Gackt, the GazettE, An Cafe, LM.C Underrated: NOISEMAKER (they has an incredible potential and with A-sketch maybe everything will be fine like OOR in their beginning), SECONDWALL, SALTY DOG (sounds like FALILV but in a minor scale) and SWANKY DANK.
