If you love rock & roll, then these anime are definitely for you. You might not think there are enough to make a list out of, but we're ranking the best rock & roll anime series that focus on getting the band together and belting out some crunchy tunes! Some of the more popular anime about forming a band and playing rock music include Beck, Nana, and Detroit Metal City, but as this list shows, there are actually a lot more choices out there than just those. Take Macross 7 for example, or Kaikan Phase. No matter which rock anime is your favorite, vote it up below, or add a series to the list if it's not there already.
