LinQ (Pronounced "Link")With their new single topping the weekly charts and growing popularity LinQ comes out on top this month, look for them to make a splash onto the national stage in the coming months.

  1. Great article. Was cool to see and nice how you laid it out.

  2. Had no idea that WHY@DOLL release charted, that’s cool. It’s a pretty good single.

  3. Hell yea LINQ! Looking forward to see them grow even more in popularity.

  4. so BiS is still considered underground although they are under avex? It can’t be helped I guess. Sad to hear they are going to disband this year, though.

    • I can’t say BiS is really underground but it’s hard to come up with precise titles. It basically comes down to either ignore the group because they aren’t underground and don’t fit the other catagories.
      I’m looking at this as more of an underground as a pop cult style than the indie style as well.
      Of course I’m up for name suggestions if you guys have any.
