[[Music/JAMProject Japan Animation song Makers Project]]. As their name suggests, they often make songs for various anime and even video games, especially those featuring HumongousMecha. Some of the most HotBlooded musicians in the UNIVERSE solo, let alone together.
%%* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HF8T23_PxAg Hagane no Messiah]] (''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Gaiden'').
* [[http://youtube.com/watch?v=tzCynZDFHqs SKILL]] (''2nd VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha''). This song is basically JAM's calling card, their "Bohemian Rhapsody". They play it as the end of the final encore of nigh every concert they do, and they go long. They engage in "MOTTO! MOTTO!!" call and response and engage in all kinds of hijinks to send the song into the 8, 9, 10 minute range. When a handful of songs were picked to re-record for a 15th anniversary album, "SKILL" was done in this style, and got a [[http://youtu.be/qCE4pHiGTXs music video]] that includes a similarly hyped crowd.
%%* [[http://youtube.com/watch?v=0Jm1I6rPjrs GONG]] (''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha 3'').
%%* [[http://youtube.com/watch?v=kdnSGsKFQ-o ROCKS]] (''VideoGame/{{Super Robot Wars Original Generation}}s'').
%%* [[http://youtube.com/watch?v=NX_m764yW3Q VICTORY]] (''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsMX'').
%%* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B1d-zwbftfo BREAK OUT]] (''Super Robot Wars OG: Divine Wars'').
%%* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KzWXWHkr2oA MAXON]] (''Super Robot Wars OG: The Inspector''). And the 2nd opening of the same anime, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A4UgLlXIQpY Ryusei Lovers.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d2b11FZ9vsA Hagane no Resistance]] (''2nd Super Robot Wars Z: Saisei Hen''). So epic, you'll be listening to it on repeat and never get tired of it.
%%* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kdIdTW1RYP4 Rebellion ~Hangyaku no Senshitachi~]] (''3rd Super Robot Wars Z: Jigoku-Hen'').
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=81RFSp6O0Sc Asu he no Houkou (The Scream Towards Tomorrow)]] (''VisualNovel/MuvLuvAlternative''). For the [[UpdatedRerelease AA Version]], they outdid themselves with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dx3VO_kr6lk NAME]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iHs-RV15NF4 Fire Wars]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vg2vHtCEl1E Majin Kenzan]], which even [[CallingYourAttacks calls the attacks]], and [[http://youtube.com/watch?v=jla-wV6g2Eo The Gate of Hell]] (''Anime/{{Mazinkaiser}}'').
%%* [[http://youtube.com/watch?v=OD0sU4HsQXc Nageki no Rosario]] (''Anime/{{Gravion}}'') and [[http://youtube.com/watch?v=2d_2OM0iYnw Kurenai no Kiba]] (''Gravion Zwei''). Also the Combining Sequence song [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=paaVlwOCMHs Gasshin! God Gravion]] (not by the whole team, but just by its member Masaaki Endoh).
* [[http://youtube.com/watch?v=Ho7D5_IVueY Dragon]] (''New Manga/GetterRobo'') (very cool [[http://youtube.com/watch?v=ZYvDK-Momv8 Acoustic]] version they did in concert).
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rzLbtiTtRY4 JAM ga Mottetta! Sailor Fuku.]] No, really!, They did a rendition of ''Anime/LuckyStar's'' Opening. Probably since Aya Hirano sang the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G6AcH-jch1M Dragon Ball Z theme.]]
%%* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9v6iXIo88ns SOULTAKER]]''.
* Although it's a live action {{Toku}} series, ''Series/{{GARO}}'''s opening [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0M1iGThevbs Savior in the Dark]] is worth mentioning here. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kjOW6hIvcuw The English subtitles of the song in question]] are every bit as HotBlooded as you can expect. Kageyama has said they always wanted to do a tokusatsu song, so when Garo came along, they worked hard to make it especially awesome.
%%* The opening for ''Series/TomicaHeroRescueFire'', "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u5eXhrzlstc Rescue Fire]], simply has to be mentioned.
* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Ez1YQfdyEg Stormbringer]]", the opening of ''Anime/KotetsushinJeeg'' and the insert song "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YiFyKOE7how Dead Or Alive]]" from episode 12, that accompanies perhaps the most badass moment in the entire series. "T-t-t-TWO JEEGS!?"
%%* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5mlmFjAzK6U Crest of "Z's"]] (''Super Robot Wars Z'').
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zKGMiaXzobs Kanjite Knight]], the opening of ''Anime/ShinMazinger'' is actually by a band called "ULTIMATE LAZY", which is basically everyone from JAM Project plus several other legendary vocalists... because it was the only way to make the group more HotBlooded and awesome. Then there's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rKLbCNKEfVI The Guardian]] (or [=GARdian=]), the second OP. A song makes even boring old [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8xqskiIehfk geometry seem awesome]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ls7oOxUBbYQ Omoide wa Okkusenman]]. Yes, [[VideoGame/MegaMan THEY WENT THERE.]]
* On his own, Hironobu Kageyama tends to create EXTREMELY badass theme music for any anime he's involved with, part of the reason he's the current leader of JAM Project [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AZoYsx9wyhs Heats]], the second opening from ''Shin Manga/GetterRobo - The World's Final Day'' is quite possibly one of the ones that puts him at number one in many fans' hearts.
** Not to mention the numerous songs from ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' and some of its games...including the [[ThemeMusicPowerUp power up theme]] when [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome Gohan first turned Super Saiyan 2]], [[http://youtube.com/watch?v=4UN_otA_KOU Spirit vs. Spirit]].
** Speaking of ''Shin Getter Armageddon'', the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gf6h2udevcQ Stoner Sunshine Theme]] is incredibly badass.
** Kageyama's music from ''Anime/MDGeist'' makes it much more watchable.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1AtOqZMtX8Q Hikari no Willpower]] from ''DBZ''. There's enough awesome there to drown a small country.
** Ever wondered how mind-blowingly awesome the original ''Manga/GetterRobo'' theme would sound if Kageyama sung it? [[http://daitrombe.net/attachments/39863/Hironobu_Kageyama_-_Change_Getter_Robo_G_Version_2001.mp3 Wonder no more.]]
** ''VisualNovel/MuvLuvAlternative'': [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZDcNbh25eW4 Tsubasa (Wings)]]. Very powerful, more so when played [[spoiler: at the end of Chapter 7.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K_IVppjwpRg Omae no Tetsui ni Kugi wo Ute]] trans: Beat the Nail with your Hammer! The most HotBlooded song for the most Hot blooded character in VideoGame/BlazBlue SHISHIGAMI BANG!
** And yes, he's done several ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' songs starting with the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vOSX4suuau4 Opening]], Robot theme and Ending (under the Pen name of KAGE) of ''Series/DengekiSentaiChangeman'', [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FMQYKwELNUk Opening]], Movie opening, Robot theme and Ending of ''Series/HikariSentaiMaskman'', [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GeeuF7DXSs0 Opening]], both robot themes (for both Jet Icarus and Jet Garuda) and Ending of Series/ChoujinSentaiJetman and Ending of ''Series/NinpuuSentaiHurricaneger''.
** Speaking of ''Super Sentai'', the theme song to ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' was already an epic masterpiece. Then Masaki Endoh produced his [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ix8Vy3mEHk own version]] that, despite the [[NoPronunciationGuide questionable pronunciation]] of the lyrics, would make ''Creator/RonWasserman himself'' proud and bring anyone who grew up on ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' as a kid to manly tears of awesomeness.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ACutTOlFyDE Kakugo Complete!]] from ''Manga/ApocalypseZero''. As reviled and ludicrous as the anime is, it's still one badass theme.
%%** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aCLbi8AS7xE Super Survivor]].
%%** Then there's the theme from ''Manga/KishinDoujiZenki''. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JjjKNegLius Vajra On!]]
%%** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wkIF8JucbCE SOLDIER DREAM]] from ''Anime/SaintSeiya''.
%%** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_DcO4QxgYTk SONIC DRIVE]], the first opening for ''Anime/SonicX''.
* Additional proof that JAM Project's members are made of win and awesome in their own right: Yoshiki Fukuyama's contribution to ''Manga/BusouRenkin''... "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xo6GWfIQamA MAKKA NA CHIKAI!]]" It's even better [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4UjgahRsh9w live]].
* Yoshiki Fukuyama is also the singing voice of one Nekki Basara; that's right, that means that this guy is also the front man for a band known as [[Anime/{{Macross 7}} Fire Bomber]].
* Masami Okui can hold her own among the rest of the boys: there's a reason why ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'''s [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6SeI4O31n5o "Rinbu - Revolution"]] is a staple at most anime song concerts. She's also the producer of the annual Animelo Summer Live concerts (the biggest anime theme song concert in Japan), which are basically an excuse to get as many of the songs on this page as possible together in one concert, short of having the universe collapsing into a singularity of awesome.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SVwYqihHpcE "Miracle Upper ~ WL"]], from ''On-Tama!'' a collaboration with [[Music/MayNakabayashi May'n]], is an insanely awesome OP for a {{Moe}} + SliceOfLife series [[SoundtrackDissonance (which makes one wonder how it got there in the first place)]]. (See also: May'n's collaboration with Yoshiki Fukuyama for ''Anime/{{Macross7}}'''s [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eFGe6oc12rg "Totsugeki Love Heart"]].)
** For other collaborations, it should be noted that she teamed up with Music/MegumiHayashibara for the ''{{LightNovel/Slayers}}'' OP ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lq64CKXkFWc "Get Along"]]) and ED ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kSY4bVeYB2g "Kujikenaikara!"]]).
* Masaaki Endoh has done a cover of both [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IhxiMwlF2u4 God Knows]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mNFm7-UgobE Sora-iro Days]]. We all know that although they were originally sung by women, they are still awesome and hotblooded, especially to those who have seen its usage in its [[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya original]] [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann anime]]. Let's just hope neither of them covers [[AwesomeMusic/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Happily Ever After]]...It'll be too awesome.
* Admittedly, most JAM Project members start their careers outside of the group with songs that were quite awesome by themselves. So how do they go about going one higher? [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GNIbnNJxvHI By putting four of them together in one great medley of awesomeness.]] To wit: Hironobu Kageyama singing "Cha-La" from ''Anime/DragonballZ'', Yoshiki Fukuyama singing (and playing guitar!) "Planet Dance" from ''Anime/{{Macross7}}'', Hiroshi Kitadano singing "We Are" from ''OnePiece'' and Masaaki Endoh singing "Yuusha-oh Tanjou" from ''Anime/GaoGaiGar''. That sound is your cerebral cortex melting.
* "Ima Ga Sono Toki Da", the first theme to ''Manga/GetterRobo Armageddon'' by the damn-near legendary Ichiro Mizuki (co-founder of Music/JAMProject). It has an old-school "Imperial Japanese Army March" that makes it one of the few songs that you can perform [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=adSGHnlEgeU While dressed like M. Bison]]. See also the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FEmvwRlYDK0 theme from]] ''{{Anime/Mazinkaiser}}'', played whenever Kouji was about to deliver a massive beatdown.
%%* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3gGZZeSNYRg "Rescue Fire"]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3rgasIBCYtg "TRANSFORMERS EVO."]] with a BRAND SPANKIN' NEW INTRO for ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated''. There are still plenty of naysayers, but a LOT - including WordOfGod [[http://twitter.com/DerrickJWyatt/status/11515512711 Derrick J. Wyatt]] - approves.
%%** [[UpToEleven AND IT JUST GOT EVEN MORE]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lsTemU5mTgw EPIC!]]
%%** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OJ-eoXh9My0 PRAISE BE! TO DECEPTICON!]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GGHFbkJ9H2U "Hello Darwin!"]]; its uplifting, adventurous beat is intense, and so are the lyrics.
* How do you make ''Anime/CardfightVanguard'', an anime about a [[CollectibleCardGame Children's Cardgame]] frickin' awesome? Have JAM Project do the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4qQYZ2nwbYY opening]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZulByBfmbT8 all three]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u5du2dXtmjs of them.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9m5Y0FsWukQ Now in English!]]
** The first of those openings, "Vanguard", was used as an insert song for [[spoiler: Koutei's Great Daiyusha Superior Crossride Final Turn against Ren]] in Season 2. The moment was made so balls-out ''awesome'' that even fans who utterly ''despise'' Season 2 consider that one scene awesome incarnate.
* Hironobu Kageyama, Masaaki Endoh, and Hiroshi Kitadani get together as "The Manga Trio" and perform [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kFD4uetwM9Q Don't Say Lazy]], the ''Manga/KOn'' ending.
* Clearly, the only reason their version of the ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' opening theme, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zGkcj8K_fTw Connect]], is in acoustic guitar is because rendering the song in their usual HotBlooded rock would have caused the Universe to spontaneously implode. Still balls-to-the-wall awesome.
* Divisive the show may be, ''Anime/DaimidalerTheSoundRobot''[='=]s opening alone was considered to be the most hotblooded song of the Spring 2014 anime season with Masaaki Endoh's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rjZ0To06pEU Kenzen Robo Daimidaler]].
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QImBolnTVH8 "THE HERO!!"]] is one HotBlooded song from a group known for being HotBlooded, and its use for the anime adaptation of ''Webcomic/OnePunchMan'' takes a great opening sequence and makes it God-like.
* Even a hilarious live action series, ''Series/TheHeroYoshihikoAndTheDevilKingsCastle'', gets an awesome moment with [[https://youtu.be/AjlP7Re6Sjc "The Brave"]].
%%* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E0eqN6F9Qxo THE EXCEEDER]]. (''SuperRobotWarsV'')
