The Best J-Pop Bands/Singers

J-pop artists list, with photos, ranked best to worst by votes. List of good j-pop bands includes a filter so you can sort by the groups’s label and what albums they've put out. This list of the top j-pop bands in the world includes all musicians who have released recordings that have gotten distribution, and is an up-to-date list. J-pop groups and artists are shown below along with any additional genres in which their music belongs. If available, you can also see information about where all j-pop bands on this list got started. These are truly the greatest j-pop bands of all time, since the most famous j-pop artists ever are listed, and the order is decided by actual fans of the best j-pop music.

You can click on the j-pop band names to see more information about that particular notable j-pop group. If they're near the top of the best j-pop artist list, though, then they should have at least some information available. All the top j-pop bands named on the list also have discographies on their pages if you click on the j-pop band names themselves.

Everything from Jackie Chan to Ayumi Hamasaki is included on this list of jpop groups. The list order changes if enough people vote for the right items, so cast your vote now. Make sure to vote for items like Aya Ueto or Kou Shibasaki if you like them.

All important, significant and iconic names in j-pop music history deserve your votes, so make sure to choose wisely. You can only vote once on this list.

The list includes all new j-pop bands, and if there are any missing on the list, you can always add them yourself. Just make sure they aren't already on the list and check your spelling, because this is already an accurate compilation of the best examples of j-pop, as well as a good place to start if you're asking yourself, or friends, exactly how to get into j-pop music. Especially since the bands at the top of the list will at the very least be the best choices if you're looking for a list of good j-pop bands with which to start out. No point in listening to them if they aren't actually good or even half-way decent j-pop bands.

This list answers the questions "who are the best j-pop bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest j-pop musician ever?"

If you know enough about the genre, please vote based on the quality of the band's music instead of just voting for the most popular j-pop bands that you might've heard of, but not really listened to closely enough to cast an informed vote.

Re-rank this bad boy then share it with your best friends to see what you guys think really belongs at the top. (283 items)
