Why do I love SCANDAL?

Their idealism and their rawness. They stand up on stage with their instruments. Nothing more nothing less. They just want to be out there playing their music. They move about without any thinking whether that rock pose would look cool on stage. They interact simply with their fans without manipulating them. And they really really look like they are enjoying themselves every time they play.

The school uniforms. Gimmicky? Maybe, but its a great gimmick. One that reflects their actual status as teenagers and connecting them instantaneously with their audience. And we love them more for that. They are not some pop princesses with plastic smiles surrounded by entourage of handlers keeping a safe distance away from us.

Of course, their sound. I have to admit it's nothing groundbreaking but then again they don't pretend that they are out there to save the world or that they are pushing the generic boundaries of pop music. They are a rock band. and they want to play rock music. And this is the music they want to play. That's it.

What makes SCANDAL different is the way the individual personalities of their members come through CLEARLY to us.They are not projecting any 'image'. It's them. That's them. Not pretending to be somebody or something else. And not afraid to show it. Haruna, confident and strong. Tomo, energetic and mischievious. Rina, sweet and friendly. Mami, mysterious and....

And what makes it even better is how those personalities meld together perfectly in the band. Haruna, apart from being lead vocals, she is also the big sister, managing the others when arguments escalate and making sure everyone has their turn during interviews. A tower of strength and common sense. Tomo, contributing greatly to the vocal texture of the band and apart from laying a down a great bass groove, is also the lyricist for many of their songs. She interacts well with the audience and I'm sure she keeps the atmosphere within the group fun and jovial. Mami, talented guitarist whose riffs give SCANDAL their rock identity in their music. Rina, whose drumming seems to get batter and better everytime I watch her play. Of course, being sweet and friendly wins the band a lot of fans and admirers.

SCANDAL is a band whose strengths lie in the unity of its members, the whole of which is greater than the sum of its parts. And it is this strength and unity which has allowed them to climb step by step out of musical obscurity.

What inspires me most is to watch this young band struggle and grow and succeed. But what is success? The end of their journey remains to be seen.

Hmm... this is a hard one...

Well, my bro got me into this SCANDAL addiction and since then I can't stop listening to them...

Their music has this cool, unique touch to it... something raw, unprocessed just like how songs should be... since they will be played live in concerts. Also, their rock side is inevitably competitive compared to other girl bands out there. Their style is different in a way that makes them sound good on stage or pre-recorded.

And to be honest... it's really Tomomi who made me like SCANDAL. When I heard her voice, that's just awesome! She's so energetic and her so called "chipmunky" voice is just so cute! Can't resist her charm o.0

So yeah, that's why I like SCANDAL... Dance

Why do I like SCANDAL?

I'm a sucker for cute girls and when I saw them, the rest was history.

Nah, well most of what I've said is true. They're the first Japanese band that got my attention. I listen to different J-artists but SCANDAL was a bit different, too much different.

I like their sounds, the way their music is played, liveliness in their PV's, the choreo, the uniforms, and the girls themselves.

Why do I like SCANDAL??? For many reasons Clap

First, I'm fond of their music. ^^ I can hear songs like Kagerou, Anata ga Mawaru... all the day. Their music is different of the other artist that I know.
Second, they are very cut (it isn't the main reason, but it's good haha).
Finally, Their lives and PV are very good.

(The only reason which do that SCANDAL isn't perfect (XD) is that Sony delete all the vids from YT (oh and that Sony controls them a "little bit" too much). Think that it isn't good for the group OMG )

Why....Why indeed.

Let's see.At first i thought they were just another manufactured band,but Shoujo S grew on me,and before i knew it i was searching for their songs.Now here's the reason:

They use really raw and uncut sound in their songs (DOLL,Shoujo S,Space Ranger,Koi Moyou,Sakura Goodbye,S.L. Magic) using only two guitars(Of course in the studio version they layer various guitar parts on top of the two,but you get what i mean),a bass guitar,drums and their voices.

That is the sole factor i listen to SCANDAL all this while.I've always been a rock guy,always have been and will always be.

Plus,Haruna....
Mami....
Tomomi....
Rina....

Tears of Joy

Because SCANDAL is unique at the same time cool. You can never find 4 cute girls rockin' the stage besides SCANDAL. And the fact that they're not just looks, but can also bring out amazing music.

I know there was ZONE, but my ears wasn't yet opened for J-Music during their time, so SCANDAL is really a new and fresh thing for me.

Plus SCANDAL is the only band you can find who has a cute drummer.

The uniforms are not a big thing for me, yeah I like it but I'll also like them without it. I really love their music and everything that comes after. Happy

Well a few months back I was searching for new music...a friend of mine is really into the anime Bleach and told me of a band that did one of the openings. I looked up SCANDAL on YouTube and I saw their video Space Ranger...and, like konohagure said, the rest is history. They have amazing talent, and their music is always playing on my computer. Tomomi's my favorite, but they're all equally awesome Clap

Even though I'm a girl, I fell in love with SCANDAL because of the girls' coolness while strutting their stuff. Another thing, who can ignore the fact that they can make Japanese school uniforms cuter than ever? I saw it's being epic on Sakura goodbye, my first pv.. LOVE

I like their style, it's just different and unique from everyone else out there.
Also, after I knew a little more about their background/past, that made me enjoy them even more.
Also, I just usually enjoy artists who make OP/ED songs for animes. Chest Tap

I grew up with bands like Cheap Trick, Bon Jovi, Journey, Foreigner, Huey Lewis, etc. These are bands that, during the '80's when androgany laden pop was tops, they stuck it out with unrefined rock and roll. With SCANDAL it's the same thing. I'm not fully into J-pop music but it seems to be mostly crap. Too much fake dance beats and too put it mildly, the dudes all look a little light on their feet. And along come these four really cute, really young girls playing the same kind of music I listened to back then. I don't understand too much Japanese but that doesn't matter. Good music is good music no matter the language.

I remembered the first song I heard was Doll, on TV. It was different from the type of music I usually listen and mainly it's because they're a girl band, which makes it even cooler :D

Im a music lover, so i liked them first when i heard their songs.
Then, i saw their faces, they are all cute.
And i was surprised that they do play their songs not just sing them.
They are great not just in recordings but in live performances as well.
SCANDAL ROCKS!!! Thumbs Onion

I listen so much Korean's girl groups, but when I found them, I realized that they're very different from a usual girl group like the others who I listen... they play instruments and stuff...
I listen some Brazilian's girlbands, and there are one who I really like, so I thought ''c'omon, I'll listen these girls, maybe there're good...'' Smile

In the first moment, I don't liked so much, but when I listen more songs, and watched some PV's, lives and etc
I realized that they're really pretty good and talented girls LOVE

Is that... they're a talented group with really good songs... So, I fall in love with them Amazed
