We will ask you some opinions on usual trends on ONE OK ROCK now.

I think the band is evolving into something new. Change is good..

What’s your opinion about fans leaving the ONE OK ROCK fandom because of various factors? (Ex. the release of 35XXXV, tour scheds, collabs)
I think they’re being very narrow-minded. They want One Ok Rock to stay as they were when that would mean stagnating, and in the music industry, if you want ot succeed, you have to keep stepping up your game, trying new things.

Yes

Why/Why not?
They saved me from killing myself during a very dark time in my life. They’re the reason why I’m still here.

If ONE OK ROCK should find this response from our site, what would you like to tell them?

Thank you, OOR. I wouldn’t be here without you and your music. They’ve kept me alive and they still do. During the darkest times, I find the light in your music. So thank you.

May they continue being the light in your life and see you on the next live.

PS. Will have to remake Jillanie’s signature. Hahaha! And the next stories will still be in the Philippines till I guess the end of the Month (we have quite a lot on pending)
