Flow – Yet Another Awesome Japanese Band!

I have discovered several Japanese Bands from these past few years. These was due to the fact the whenever I watch an anime and I find an Opening or Ending Song catchy, I download all of them and listen to it. And now, mainly because of my addiction to Japanese bands, I have yet to present to you another awesome Japanese Band called Flow.

Have you ever heard of the line “We are fighting dreamers!” ?. Yes, that line if from the song GO! by Flow! Flow is the Japanese band behind the anime Beelzebub, Naruto and Others (Most of their songs are on Naruto). They are a punk / rock type of band and their songs have a catchy melody upbeat melody.  Here is some info from Wikipedia:
