    Japanese rock, also known by the abbreviation "J-rock", has a vibrant underground rock scene, best known internationally for noise rock bands such as Boredoms and Melt Banana, as well as stoner rock bands such as Boris. More conventional indie rock artists such as Eastern Youth and Number Girl have found some mainstream success in Japan, but relatively little recognition outside of their home country.

    I just posted the link for Jpop since it has a pretty long definition and the Jrock definition I found on wikipedia. I couldn't really find a definition of Jrock though
