Best Of Alt-Idol 2020

Best Of Alt-Idol 2020

As you probably already know, 2020 is almost over. Many things happened in the underground idol scene during the last twelve months: some groups disbanded and others came in their place; some units lost some members and/or gained new ones; some idols disappeared from the scene while others even started solo careers; the usual idol mess, but maybe even worse than usual.

We had the big Necronomidol drama (which also led to the birth of Manacle); codomomental groups have been going through a lot of changes; BLACKNAZARENE lost a couple of members too; DESURABBITS announced the end of their activities in 2021, while sora tob takana are already inactive. Lots of bad stuff, right?

But at the same time, we also got Wagamama Rakia going strong with their new line-up; Bish’s Aina THE END recently announced her solo activities; Migma Shelter released one of the craziest idol albums I’ve ever heard; units like INforMEL and TENRIN had a great start. So, some very nice things happened as well.

Anyway, if you ever feel nostalgic for this quarantine-plagued year, try the Spotify playlist below, where I chose a hundred songs to sum up these twelve months with some good music. I gave myself a few rules to select these tracks:

  • Only one song for each idol/group (meaning that 100 different artists have been featured)
  • They are in alphabetical order, as it would have been too hard to rank them in any way

So this may be a good chance to discover anything you missed in 2020. Enjoy these almost seven hours of idol music!

TRICK OR TREAT? – Idol Halloween 2019

Halloween 2019
Let’s celebrate Halloween with a short horror-themed playlist and a photo gallery of the cutest …sorry, scariest idols out there.

There is nothing better than an alternative idol playlist to celebrate Halloween: horror punk, darkwave and heavy metal apparently work perfectly with evil witches and carved pumpkins. Unfortunately, we couldn’t include Dopechan’s rap on Nightmare Before Christmas‘s theme, but give it a listen anyway.

So here we go with Necronomidol‘s ultra-dark sound, Pikarin‘s craziest madness, XTEEN‘s horrific punk and much more; one thing’s for sure: you’re gonna have the best nightmares you’ve ever had…

In addition, below you can find some pics of our favorite idols in Halloween-themed outfits. Spoiler: Hanako-san has not been included, as she’s always the scariest one.
