#338 Detroit Metal City

Detroit Metal City/デトロイト・メタル・シティ may sound familiar.


It took it’s name from the KISS song “Detroit Rock City”.

It is a ridiculous manga and anime series.
It even spawned a live action movie featuring  Kenichi Matsuyama.


It follows the story of Soichi Negishi – he’s a shy, introverted musician that wants to get into pop music.

He ends up as the lead singer and guitarist of the most vulgar heavy metal band.

He wants to break out of being the sucessful leader of Detroit Metal City and pursue his dream but he keeps getting pulled back.


A Detroit Metal City tribute album was released from a host of awesome Japanese bands covering their own songs in metal style.

The fictional band also has it’s own albums of music used on the series.
