The first time I heard hardcore, shoot-your-mother, stab-a-punk-in-the-face gangsta rap in a fast food restaurant in Japan, it blew me away...

...now I don't even notice. That's probably not good.

I once heard a song that kept going on about shooting the police and white people at a women's clothing shop in Japan. Very unnerving.

Makes me wonder what it would be like if the shoe was on the other foot. Then again, is there any equivalent to hard-core hiphop in a non-English language? It might be like looking for a kabuki play that wasn't written in Japanese.

@Rognik: Swahili and French, for two.

@ Rognik

I've been told when the Japanese imported hip-hop culture, they left behind all the violence that is attached to it in the US. So their songs are supposedly more party/fun/love themed.

Then again, I'm far from being able to translate them. I've been slacking in my studies for a few years now.

That's awesome. I would spray coffee everywhere with laughter, then probably start singing along.

I remember being overseas when "My Neck, My Back" was popular... And hearing little kids singing it...

@Rognik I know that German has a very wide variety of music, I'm sure they have some somewhere

Reminds me of an English-language course advert from I think the Netherlands...


Hehe. It's an oldie but a goodie.

I was in a Gap-like shop near Harajuku with another expat. when the Japanese song playing launched into several f-bombs (in a cutesy j-pop sounding song no less). Both she and I just stopped and nearly fell over laughing- NO ONE ELSE even blinked. That still makes me giggle. XD

I don't know the superintended did seem to care that he cursed in English. I think they know the curse words and think it is normal.

I just found your comic about a week ago and I have been trying to catch up. So many things to comment on but this one caught me as especially funny. Two years ago, I was at a Aoyama suit store and they were playing Cee Lo Green's "Forget You" (only the 4-letter version) so loud that the music was blaring out into the street. My wife (who is Japanese) and I thought, this is just wrong but wound up singing along since it is a great tune :)

Just so you know, you can use those words in Spanish too, we don't care either.
