I'd like some good J-Rock / J-Pop. Recommendations please.?

I've been studying Japanese and have heard from many people that listening to Japanese music helped them pick up some good usage tips and phrases.

The problem is, I really don't feel like trudging through hours of really terrible music for a few that are bearable.

Here's a very small sample of bands I like:

The Strokes

The White Stripes

Clap Your Hands Say Yeah

Pearl Jam

Wilco

Of Montreal

Brendan Benson

Josh Rouse

Any recommendations? As long as it's well played, quality music I can probably get into it.
