I’m kind of into 2000s emo rock such as Evanescence, Three Days Grace, ect. I find really MCR a little overrated though. I couldn’t find any good Asian 2000s rock though. I was wondering if there is any recommendations for any 2000s Taiwanese rock songs. Here are some songs with the vibe and sound I’m looking for my Taiwanese rock song recommendations:
Bring me to life by Evanescence
Pain by Three Days grace
Whisper by Evanescence
Going Under by Evanescence
In the end by Linkin Park
Last resort by Papa Roach
Boulevard of Broken Dreams by Green Day
You know what? It’s hard to explain. Just some sort of emo/angst/gothic vibe but nothing too heavy or screamy. Just wanna really feel the vibe. I’d like it to have a nice emo sound to it like Evanescence or 3DG. BTW, it doesn’t even have to be Taiwanese. It can be Korean, Japanese or Chinese. Basically from the far East in Asia. I think Chinese and Japanese are very beautiful languages. I’m super duper picky and not really into old rock.
Because of the stupid Youtube restriction on my Chromebook (and probably cuz some of the videos you guys sent me may not be available here in America), I would prefer it if you gave me the song name rather than the link.

I’ve been looking for similar stuff in Japanese for a while, this is the only thing remotely close I could find, got some syrupy My Chemical Romance notes with a bit of LP influence:

Bumping this thread because I’m in a similar bind. I’ve been in Taiwan for a while now, and so far my only experience with Taiwanese music has been glossy, disposable KTV pop, maudlin ballads, and middle-of-the-road hip hop where dudes in sportswear shout (not rap) about how many IG followers they have.
Are there any decent punk, rock, hardcore, alt, whatever bands in Taiwan? Something that has a bit of grit, passion, and imagination to it, in the vein of Shellac, Swans, Refused, Converge, Fugazi, Wire, that sort of thing? I’d love to get into Taiwanese music but my tastes haven’t really aligned with what I’ve been shown. Good hip hop would be appreciated too.
