So, people were recently discussing about music from Japan being included in Rock Band. I think some of us knew that Rock Band: Japan were once under our intentions, but we never heard much about it since then, and was later forgotten about. So this setlist is about the following: What if Rock Band: Japan was released? What would the setlist look like?

I said to everyone that I should consider making a setlist consisting of only Japanese artists, and I held my promise. I present to you, my Rock Band: Japan setlist. 48 artists, 48 songs, all from Japan.

    Honestly probably the most mainstream setlist you could've come up with, but I still thought it was really well made and I would totally buy this.

    Thanks :)

    Honestly, this was not an easy setlist to make, hours of research and doing my best to find balance between the decades and genres. The older bands with a couple of exceptions were hard to find. I did intentionally include most, if not all of the extraordinarily known J-Rock artists.

    It all paid off though, it did help me discover new artists.

    Art of Life would've been my choice for X Japan, otherwise great setlist. And I know Art of Life will never happen

    Sorry to bump this, but I found it on the Setlists thread and since I'm curious about J-Rock, I thought I could give my opinion. I'd like to see this, but:

    I believe you misspelt this. The song's called Crazy NIGHTS, not Lights.
