I'm sure there's an even larger majority of people that disagree with that statement in Japan, but he's making it sound like his opinion is fact since he lives in there, and we don't.


i agree with you

just thought i'd leave a note...

couple years back, i was a HUGE fan of Zone. Managed to collect almost all of their songs (only for my hd to crash =.= ). Only until recently i came across SCANDAL and grew a liking to them immediately.

but as a ZONE fan, listening to SCANDAL did not remind me of ZONE. THeir music, like many here hv commented, is different, probably most distinctively their pace.

However, to all SCANDAL fans, if you love SCANDAL (obviously!), you should look up ZONE, hopefully can still find some of their songs around the net/stores. I'm pretty sure you'll enjoy them as well. Slower tunes, but catchy nonetheless Happy


P.s. SCANDAL are way better looking tho hahaha

I agree, watched some old lives of ZONE I just don't get their outfits / costumes,
and also ZONE fans should thank SCANDAL for covering their song because it can lead curios listeners to be introduce to ZONE. I my self have no prior knowledge of ZONE I only got to know them because of SCANDAL covering Secret Base.

Nah, ZONE doesn't need to thank SCANDAL...

ZONE is long gone and it was their choice to disband, so meaning they just wanted to move on and leave the legacy as it stood... I think Miyu is the only member still making music to this day, so she wouldn't want new fans to be like, "Oh! You're Miyu Nagase from ZONE right?", it hurts the ego a bit... ZONE is ZONE and SCANDAL is SCANDAL, no comparison in the two... You have to enjoy both as individuals....

(From reading the past responses, I think Yuu and Asagi explained both ends the best, read back on it...)

Similarities are there, but the styles are way different because of the current trends... Noted on the clothing too... HA HA! So even if Sony is using SCANDAL as another ZONE, it's not the same because they're filling a voided artist spot and utilizing all sorts of tech and imagery of today's trends that they couldn't use on ZONE back then... SCANDAL is unique to ZONE...

Hardcore ZONE fans will forever regard SCANDAL as another ZONE, but those are the manic fans who can't let go of anything... Remember that the Japanese mindset is different, so you'll always get negativity between comparing two similar groups... That's just it though, a hardcore fans will never admit defeat and forever defend their choices...

Likewise, hardcore SCANDAL fans won't accept the fact that ZONE was a better band and vice versa...

I thought it was nice that SCANDAL covered Secret Base because I thought to myself, "Oh wow, SCANDAL is paying tribute to ZONE! I love this song!"... Covers are always nice to hear, as long as it's not butchered, so I like how they retained how the song was sung and played... Here in the States, if a well known band does a cover of an old song, they'll be praised more for "remembering the roots" by the masses, than ridiculed by hardcore fans of the original... (Hence, remember what I said about butchering a song, it applies to anything...)

It's ironic because you have groups like Dir En Grey, L'arcenCiel, Gackt, etc. in Japan, yet no one complains about that...

"Heh, sorry for the long post, but you know I'm a big ZONE fan and missed out on this topic when it was first posted..."

"Don't be sad if other people are saying things about you. Remember: If you're not worth anything, they wouldn't bother."

I can't remember where I read this quote, but it does suit the topic.

Well, in my opinion, maybe some ZONE's fan are alarmed that "some band" are stepping up and they can't accept the idea that "this band" might actually replace ZONE's legacy, which can really happen right? Nothing's permanent, they should accept that. Why can't they be happy that their country is producing more and more talented bands besides ZONE? And look at SCANDAL, how could they say that they're "FAKE ZONE"??? Their music genre alone shows their big difference. SCANDAL's cover of SB shows how versatile the band is, and they are good at what they're doing. (Try to imagine ZONE covering a rock song, better imagine it's Shunkan, and tell me if it's good or bad. Well, I only heard a few songs of ZONE so I can't really try this heheheh) And I can't find any girlband today who can perform live as SUGOI as SCANDAL!

And as for SONY, we'll never know what their true plans are. But, by the looks of it, the girls are having fun at what they're doing so we can't really go Rage about SONY's management..

And oh! I forgot I hated SONY for this: NOT GIVING SCANDAL A BREAK!

WTH.... SCANDAL being plastic no way.. they have their own style.. they just cover the SB because they are a fan of the band... even other bands do some cover.. Like New Found Glory for example Nice One

Even if ZONE is disbanded some of their materials are for sale and they are entitled to claim royalties... Scandal covering them may encourage new listeners to buy it ...

branded as fake zone?i think it was all emotion based. cause we all know that secret base was zone's last set (as in) and that song still hold the emotion of that performance. like you do not want someone else to use the things left to you by someone dear to you.
