You probably have listened to their songs, watched their lives and saw how the fandom works—and now, you’re trying to dig deeper to know them even better—and I congratulate you for doing that! Like, really! You’ve chosen the right thing!
Maybe you’re wondering how they started, wondering how they got their name, or where the heck is the former 5th member; maybe you’re asking why there’s so much hate, and why ONE OK ROCK seemingly deviates from the genre that people had started to like them for—whatever your reason is, I’m glad that you’re trying to do some research before judging the band, disregarding their feelings and stomping on their rights to change, to evolve and to dream—like every one of us.
So, let’s start with brief introductions for each member—this is nothing serious, really, but I will only include FACTS available on the internet, but before that, he’s a GIGANTIC DISCLAIMER:
THE FACTS STATED HERE ARE NOT AND WILL NEVER BE MINE. I’LL BE PROVIDING THE LINKS SO ALL OF YOU COULD SEE THE LOVELY PEOPLE WHO GAVE THEIR TIME AND LOVE AND PASSION FOR TRANSLATING AND KEEPING FACTS AND INFOS ABOUT THE BAND. I OWN NOTHING.
Also, this would be written in a not-serious, not-formal and kinda bullshit way—except for the facts, coz they’re real—so please bear with me and if you don’t like it—the door is always open for you to leave.
AGAIN, THIS IS A WORK IN PROGRESS, POINTING OUT ANY MISTAKES AND CORRECTIONS WOULD BE VERY MUCH APPRECIATED. I WOULD ALSO LOVE IF ANYONE WOULD ADD SOME INFOS THAT WOULD HELP THIS TO GROW EVEN BETTER.
