Babymetal – Give Me Chocolate

BABYMETAL is a Japanese girls metal vocal and dance group, consist of Suzuka Nakamoto (lead vocal), Moa Kikuchi, and Yui Mizuno. They are also known as Su-Metal, MoaMetal, and YuiMetal.

Their style of music is a mix of J-Pop idol and heavy metal. Su-Metal is 16 year old this year and the other two are 14 year old, where Suzuka Nakamoto as “graduated” from the female idol group Sakura Gakuin.

The opening for this song is heavy metal as hell. But as the lyrics kick in, J-Pop idol stuff came in. I’m totally hooked onto this sing! And not to mention the girls are kinda cute, in a none-pedo way.

Here’s BABYMETAL’s Give Me Chocolate music video and lyrics.

ONE OK ROCK – The Beginning, Rurouni Kenshin Live Action Theme Song

ONE OK ROCK, is a Japanese rock band formed in 2005 consisted of vocalist Takahiro Moriuchi or better known as Taka Morita, guitarist Toru Yamashita, bassist Ryota Kohama, and drummer Tomoya Kanki.

It was originally a 5-piece band but Alex Onizawa left the group in 2009.

Although they released their first studio album, Zeitakubyo in 2007, and 6 singles over the years, I’ve only heard of them in this song, their 7th single, ‘The Beginning”, the theme song for Rurouni Kenshin (Samurai X) Live Action Movie.

They were also famously known for the single “Re:make/No Scared” where the latter is being used as the main theme for Black Rock Shooter (BRS) video game.

For any Rurouni Kenshin fan, be it manga or anime, if you have watched or read the whole story you would definitely love this song as the lyrics are pretty meaningful when it applies to Kenshin Himura, the protagonist of Rurouni Kenshin.

Despite not understanding the meaning of the Japanese lyrics, the English lyrics are sufficient to tell the story of Kenshin Himura, his struggle and to adapt himself in the early Meiji-era, his after-life for being an assassin.

By listening and reading their lyrics, one can tell ONE OK ROCK is a rock band with heavy Western influence with major English lyrics and their style.

Some people may compare their style to the nu-metal of Linkin Park but for me, they are nothing like that and ONE OK ROCK is probably the next thing in J-Rock, ever since B’z, Mr Children, Luna Sea, Glay, and L’Arc-en-Ciel.

The Japanese music scene is a fast moving industry where unsuccessful artistes would be replaced in a short period of time, leaving a lot of them being a one hit wonder.

Being a Japanese music fan, there’s no energetic or I would say awesome band around for a long time, even taking into account in the likes of Asian Kung-Fu Generation, UVERWorld, FLOW, Nico Touches The Wall, Abingdon Boys School, and many others, that can make an impact as deep as ONE OK ROCK.

ONE OK ROCK, comes from “one o’clock”. Due to the Japanese pronounciation of ‘r’ and ‘l’, it became “o’crock” or “o’krock”, which later separated to become “ok rock”.

So here’s the music video and lyrics of ONE OK ROCK’s “The Beginning” and a trailer of Rurouni Kenshin Live Action Movie.

ONE OK ROCK – The Beginning

Just give me a reason
To keep my heart beating
Don’t worry it’s safe right here in my arms
As the world falls apart around us
All we can do is hold on, hold on

Take my hand
And bring me back

I risk everything if it’s for you
I whisper into the night
Telling me it’s not my time and don’t give up
I’ve never stood up before this time
Demo yuzurenai mono itta kono te wo hanasanai

So stand up, stand up (Just gotta keep on running)
Wake up, wake up (Just tell me how I can)
Never give up
Kuru wa shimi hodo setsunai

Just tell me why baby
They might call me crazy
For saying I’d fight until there is no more
Urei wo fukunda senkougankou wa kankakiteki shoudou
Blinded, I can’t see the end
So where do I begin?

Say not a word, I can hear you
The silence between us
Nanimo nai you ni utsuteru dake
I take this chance that I make you mine
Tada kakusenai mono kattate yori misekakete

So stand up, stand up (Just gotta keep on running)
Wake up, wake up (Just tell me how I can)
Never give up
Kanashimi to setsunasa

Just give me a reason
To keep my heart beating
Don’t worry it’s safe right here in my arms
Kudaketenaide saite jita kono omoi wa
So blinded I can’t see the end

Look how far we made it
The pain i can’t escape it
Kono mamajya mada owarase koto wa dekinai deshou
Nando kutabarisou demo kuchi hateyou tomo owariwanaisa
So where do I begin?

Nigirishimeta ushinawanu youni to
Te wo hirogereba koboreochisou de
Ushinau mono nado nakatta hibino dasei wo sutete…kimi wo

Just tell me why baby
They might call me crazy
For saying I’d fight until there is no more
Fureri ukanda senkougankou wa kangakiteki shoudou
Blinded, I can’t see the end

Look how far we made it
The pain i can’t escape it
Kono mamajya mada owaraseru koto wa dekinai deshou
Nando kutabarisou demo kuchi hateyou tomo owariwanaisa
It finally begins…
