Music page updated with new downloads and a new poll

I’ll admit, it’s been a LONG LONG time since we updated the Music section of BOO, but better late than never, ne? Our last update was in September 2007, when New World and Hikari Sasuhou were voted the most wanted downloads, and up till now, each song has been downloaded over 1100 times, a new record for the Music page and definitely not just because of the delay in updating this page!

This time, a day dreaming… and Kodou were the top favourites of our voters, and as usual, we have also put up two extra downloads for just one week only, including the much-requested Hikari Sasuhou (Survive ver.) as well as the runner up from the previous polls, forward.

Thanks to everyone who voted in the latest polls, and if possible, it would be great if you could vote again in the next one, where:

  • Butterfly (Butterfly single)
  • DRIVE (New World album)
  • Believer (Chain single)
  • Grab (Survive compliation album)
  • Gaku-Ten (Baby Rock album)
  • RAIN (New World album)

are all up for selection. It might be a bit more difficult to choose this time! :)

More updates will be forthcoming throughout the site, as well as more content from various contributors! And before I forget, we have updated the affiliate link with Sound EX from their Myspace to their official new website! The people behind the website are Nao and Sesshy, and I would encourage everyone to pay a visit, particularly as the graphics used for the site design really are fantastic! I’ve included a screenshot of the new site design below as a taster, but look out for the flash movie on the splash page – it’s worth the wait – and this is coming from someone who doesn’t usually take a second glance at splash pages.

As if photos weren’t enough, we have been given a very rare treat by Ichi‘s friend – cstarresurrection or happysky on the Forums. The title explains it all – they are videos of Back-on performing at the Anime Matsuri concert!

This is a rare glimpse (and good quality :D) into Back-on‘s amazing live-performance standards. Apparently their repetoire/set-list included (with thanks to Miyu-chan and xiijelly)

  2. EYES
  4. Believer
  5. Drive
  6. a day dreaming…
  7. so many tears
  9. Hikari Sasuhou
  10. Chain


  1. Colors
  2. Kodou

We have now been able to confirm the full list thanks to Miyu-chan and xiijelly (earlier, happysky says there were about 10!) , but let us return out focus to the (all important) videos!

Watch Kodou PV as well as a clip of Back-on’s live performance!

We haven’t posted updates regarding Back-on Youtube content for a long while (its mainly been about e.g. Murder Princess OVA), but the list included MVs for New World, Gaku-Ten and Flydom. Today, I came across some brand new videos uploaded by the one-and-only blueblueblue. I can only hazard a guess that this user is from Japan but he/she comes up with the most unique Back-on clips!

About this entry

A few updates…

I’ve realised – again and again – there’s a lot of content to be added/updated/edited on Back-on Online, so hope everyone can be as patient as possible. Back-on Online aims to be the BEST fansite dedicated to Back-on, and hopefully we’re not doing *too* badly at the moment whilst we build up the content-base. One also has to consider how the information is laid out, as there is such a variety of data, its confusing just trying to figure out *how* to organise it. If you have any suggestions about how the site should develop, please let me know.

In the meantime, a few page updates have been made to:

  • Band Members – Kenji03’s profile has been added. We’ve also added a couple of comments after some intensive internet research but more details will be added later.
  • Discography – The details for New World and Chain have been added, again with some comments from Back-on Online. It was interesting to find that 鼓動 (Kodou… which is supposed to mean pulsating according to one source)  is actually the main theme for the programme ‘Mayokara‘.

Most of the factual information was sourced directly from the band’s official website, but other information has been compiled from multiple internet sources by this site.  More content will be added in the next few days.

About this entry

Lyrics are now available… Chain, Believer and Kodou

The japanese lyrics for Chain, Believer and Kodou are now available! I was surfing around the internet for Back-on, and came across Listen.jp which *just* so happened to have the lyrics to these 3 songs!

After some small edits, I can definitely verify that the Japanese lyrics posted for Chain are correct, or at least official – they now match up with the ones on the New World album insert that I own (its sitting on my desk!)

The next step of course, is to ensure that the translations are correct. I’ll try and hassle a japanese friend since my japanese abilities aren’t up to it at the moment. Hope this is a good present for everyone! Please please do send in some feedback or comments to show your support for Backon Online!

About this entry

Back-on on Myspace.com [updated May 18th 2007]

Yup, it turns out Back-on now have their very own account on Myspace. I came across it quite by accident, but they have been a members since June 7th 2006. Without further ado, visit the website by clicking on http://www.myspace.com/backonjapan


You can listen to Chain, Drive, Hikari Sasuhou and New World on their profile page, which also lists general information about the band…


BACK-ON is… Back-On=In Japanese kanji “Sound Explosion” 2002 Teeda, Kenji03, Shu, Gori. The four misfits all from Adachi Tokyo. Plus Kenji03’s big brother’s friend Macchin joins.

Teeda & Kenji03, the 2top brings a strong message and the street flavor of Adachi. With trust and respect twards each other, Back-On will always bring “Sound Explosion” for the people.

2006-Opening Song of Animation “Air Gear” First single “Chain” makes a smash hit. The mini album “New World” Not only gets big in Japan, even the world starts wanting Back-On.

… as well their musical influences…

TEEDA: Kotton Mouth Kings,CRAZY TOWN, Mr Cartoon, Zodak, INSOLENCE, P.O.D, SHAKA ZOMBIE, tsunomaru, Yoshihiko Inoue(SLUM DUNK), Akira Toriyama(DRAGON BALL), Kousuke Masuda
GORI: Hoobastank, Chara, aiko, JIN, J(LUNA SEA)

…ending with their record label name…

cutting edge

Cutting Edge is actually a sub-label of Avex Trax, a famous Japanese music record company. According to Wikipedia, the Cutting Edge sub-label is known for its rock artists.
Their profile has received over 24000 page views – a seriously good sign as according to Volcomtoast/Finger Are I?‘s blog (http://blog.myspace.com/volcomtoast), back in June 2006, they only had just under 400 views! This means an average of 3300 visitors each month since then!

The band hasn’t uploaded any videos, but you can still watch the Youtube.com versions of New World (PV), New World (CM), Baby Rock (CM), Chain (PV), Gaku-Ten (PV) and Flydom (PV) – the latter two are both singles from Baby Rock, Back-on’s third album, released in 2005.

They have, however, uploaded some photos which you can see below:

myspace.uploaded myspace.936061573_m

The Myspace page also links to the band profile on Purevolume.com, which says that it is “the place for rising artists to host their mp3s and get exposure“. You can, again, listen to Chain, Drive and New World, but in addition, you can also listen to/preview Kodou or 鼓動, a track featured on their single release ‘Chain‘ in 2006 (Track #3) – a great tune starting off with some fast guitar strumming and drums (ala. the chorus) interspersed with with more chilled-out reggae for the main verse.


Back-on have classified themselves under “Rock/Rap/Pop Punk” on Purevolume, but add that they are also “Loud” and are a “J-Rock Band“. Aside from the usual blurb about the ‘New World’ album, they have also posted their support for street-wear brand names found in Japan, such as Tribal, Independent Truck Co. and Globe.

And last but not least… Back-on‘s Purevolume profile picture…
