WE ARE X | FILM TRAILER
It's crazy how one band totally revolutionized the way Japanese saw rock music, and rebelled against the very conservative lifestyle of Japan's culture. Totally respect that.
The loss of Hide really changed everything also because that man alone pretty much changed the entire landscape for young teens at the time. He was truly a massive icon to many people even to this day.
