X Japan vs. The Used – Cage Match

X Japan / The Used
Micah Smith, Herfitz PR / Facebook: The Used

X Japan are on fire as they took down Gavin Rossdale and the rest of Bush in yesterday’s Cage Match. Will this veteran Japanese rock band be able to come out on top against today’s challenger?

The Used head into the Cage Match with their brand new single ‘I Come Alive’ off of their fifth full-length studio album ‘Vulnerable,’ which is due out March 27. The disc will be released on the band’s own Anger Management Group via Hopeless Records, and is produced by Goldfinger frontman John Feldman. Check out Loudwire’s review of the tune here.

Rules of Cage Match:

There are no rules … except this one: If a song remains the reigning champ for five straight cage matches, it is retired to the Loudwire Cage Match Hall of Fame. With so many great songs out there, we have to give other bands a chance!
