5 ONE OK ROCK tracks that you should listen to before their Manila concert

Team Manila Concert Junkies
Japanese superstar rock group, ONE OK ROCK, is coming to the Philippines for their Luxury Disease Asia Tour to Manila on September 26, 2023 at Smart Araneta Coliseum.


The Japanese superstar rock group was formed in 2005 and was known for their top tier music such as “Wherever you are,” “Stand Out Fit In,” “We Are,” and “The Beginning.”

Before their most-awaited concert this September 26, 2023 after the cancellation in 2020, here's the tracks that you need to listen to so you could prepare for a rocking night with ONE OK ROCK.


“Big boys don't cry

Shoot low, aim high

Eat up, stay thin

Stand out fit in

This is the personal favorite of mine. This song will definitely speak to your soul and the touching lyrics will make you emotional as it is relatable.

The song speaks volume for all of the people who experienced not "fitting in" because of the society and community they live in.



“Cause we are, the colors in the dark”

This song is another outstanding track that speaks volumes of what the song is about. It is a song that empowers strength that even if you feel underestimated and some people see you as a failure at some point of your life, you can overcome it by trusting and standing up for yourself.


“Let's live like we're immortal

Live just for tonight

We'll think about tomorrow, yeah

When the sun comes up”

Just like what the lyrics said, it's like you only live once so do whatever you want in that day. If you want to do things you haven't done before, then do it and just live in the moment. Do whatever you want and do not waste any nights and live with no regrets the day after.


“If you're drowning in your doubt,

save yourself”

Just like the title, "save yourself" by ONE OK ROCK wants to convey that you should save yourself from the pain. It may be to save yourself from one-sided love because it's obvious that the person that the protagonist loves, doesn't love them back and they can feel the pain.


“Don't give up

It's gonna be alright

Cause I won't let you burn now”

With all of the struggles and challenges that they faced, you shouldn't give up and whatever happens, whatever struggles you face in life, you can "make it out alive."



“Wherever you are, I'll always make you smile

Wherever you are, I'm always by your side

Whatever you say, you're always on my mind”

It's a song about loving someone and even if you are far away with the person you love, you can still express your love towards them.


“Listen, listen,

To your heart”

Just like the title, you need to listen to the desires of your heart. Even if you fail a thousand times and keep on hurting yourself, you need to listen and save yourself.

Get ready for a rocking night to remember on September 26, 2023 with ONE OK ROCK at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
