Yup. I'm debating on if they should be included in the list or not at this point though, as the list is much more complete than it was and they've always been more of a pop group masquerading as a rock band.

I'd personally remove them and never mention them ever again in any discussion about Japanese metal or rock.

I think they should be listed just for respect to the real band, especially Mikio Fujioka, but they are men, so I don't know ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Yeah, I am one of those who actually likes Babymetal, but I would agree that they probably don't belong on this list as they are not really a band so much as a project -- a fact that they are very upfront about. Just my two cents. Smile
For those who are interested in that sort of thing, my collection on Discogs.com.

It's just nitpicking, but even if Babymetal stays on the list, they weren't a female-fronted band in 2010 since there were no band behind them.

It's such a messy inclusion and there's really nothing else like them on it, I think I will drop them, just for consistency's sake.
