Eikichi Yazawa became part of the whole subculture when he was part of the rockabilly group Carol in the early seventies. After his break-up with the group he pursued his solo career and managed to fill up the Budokan hall over a hundred times!
You may actually be familiar with his music through the game Yakuza 3: the opening theme was performed by Eikichi Yazawa.
Now if you are a huge fan of Eikichi your room might similar to this:

You can also create your own bosozoku style music video by combining some (bosozoku) drag race, highway rolls and meeting videos together and put some rock and roll under it:
Love the Crown S60 @0:57! It looks wicked!
Kishidan (founded in 2000) is a Japanese pop group and they mainly play retro rock. Their music is more pop than rock, while their image is more rock than pop. Their music isn’t that interesting but their outfits are!
They mainly dress up old fashioned Japanese school uniforms (gakuran) with bosozoku haircuts. I guess their target audience should be the wannabe bosozoku school boys. A good example is this video:
Their songs are mainly about motorcycles, conflicts at school, hanging out with your gang and adolescent love.
And in this video you can see the school boys hang out with the gangs and ending up as a bosozoku themselves while having some adolecent love with a teen girl:
But if you look at this video you probably slowly get the idea what they really are: a joke group set up by big record companies to earn loads of money for them:
Not anything car related but I was looking for a video with bosozoku cars with high pitch revving. I did not succeed in finding that, however I did find this great video of a bosozoku member revving some tunes on his bike:
I couldn’t detect any known tune from that, but I surely think that he actually just played some well known Japanese rock and roll songs. 😉
