* OutOfGenreExperience: "Zero" from ''Fetch'', despite its [[ClassicalMusic neoclassical]]-style intro, is more of a JapanesePopMusic song with guitars, hell, it could be easily mistaken for an anime theme song if the guitars had less effects and the vocals were different, or an [[VisualKei Oshare Kei]] song akin to what bands like Music/AnCafe or Music/AliceNine usually play.

* InTheStyleOf: The drums on ''Cell-Scape'' were programmed to emulate the style of [[Music/MunicipalWaste Dave Witte]], who has played live session drums for them at various points.

Melt Banana (stylized as [=MxBx=] and Melt-Banana) is a Japanese [[NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly experimental]] rock band formed in 1991. Easily recognizable by their extremely fast and energetic {{Grindcore}} music combined with elements of NuMetal, AlternativeRock, ElectronicMusic (especially HarshNoise and {{Industrial}}), PunkRock, dance music and JapanesePopMusic in a similar manner to bands such as Music/MrBungle and Music/FaithNoMore, the distinctive musical chemistry between frontwoman/founder Yasuko Onuki and lead guitarist/co-founder Ichirou Agata, and their dual persona as a band (Melt Banana Lite and Melt Banana Regular), they are one of the most prominent and prolific Japanese rock bands in the active scene.
