Eurobeat is a niche over in Japan, or so I've been told. You'd still get strange looks and be questioned if you went over there and expressed your love for it there. They like shitty corporation-produced pop music as much as Americans, and they like Rap music as well. Don't believe me? Check out Rap wa Kan no Tamashii da!

Exactly. General Japanese people wonder why non-Japanese ppl have to
bother to dance dassai-parapara when they have their own cool dancing style.

I take it that a lot of you americans don't go to clubs or dance parties often? It is rap, hip hop, R&B, etc... that is played all the time. It is the best music for that sort of club dancing (grinding, so on...the works). No complaints since I have come to accept it :)

2001, when Trance and Hardhouse started being phased out for D&B and Jungle....

Though, to the club owners' credit around here, it got rid of most of the drugs as an aftereffect.

I throw down in mosh pits all the time, to hardcore and death metal. By now I've accepted the fact that I'm not going to be dancing parapara to NIGHT OF FIRE/NIKO when I go out, and I'm used to that. So I listen to Eurobeat at home. 8)

Supporting Wataru's claim:

http://youtube.com/watch?v=ey5liITzE1Q (Foxxi MisQ - A-L-I-V-E)

Basically a Sketchers commercial in a music video; with a group of singers that was put together for the soul purposes of being the "Japanese Destiny's Child" (So i've heard.)

A lot of people put some sort of revered status on Japanese music but a lot of it is the same old manufactured crap that we have here.

Though, the day I see everything is the day where I walk into a club or bar and hear Vivi - I Love My Dog playing. 8)

Quick! Someone make a parapara routine to that song! And give Nine a ticket to the Dutchlands. Because if it's gonna happen, I'm so gonna play it at the next event I'm behind the decks. ;D!

*patiently waiting for SEB release ;3

Oh it's going to be released earlier for me, since DST kicks in this weekend! =D

It's not that we have to bother, it's because we can and it's fun.

Although it doesn't mean we can't dance in our "cool dancing style" :D
