X Japan: Kurenai (1989)

Well, the 80s didn't only occur in the west. Asia had its own wave, its own Bon Jovis, its own Def Leppards. Here we have "Kurenai," a 1989 single released by Japanese supergroup X Japan.

And here we have another live version from 1997.

X Japan still stands as one of the most enduring and popular acts in Asia, its appeal having outlasted many upstart acts over the last 20 years.

Here is the band's OFFICIAL SITE (in Nihongo).
