If India comes under your notion of "Asia" - yes there are many.

Rock and roll style? Sure, Japan, China, South Korea, Thailand, Vietnam, Phillipines all have plenty of rock and pop bands.

What about some Indian bands?

Interestingly, immigrants from Indonesia brought rock music to the Netherlands. The Tielman Brothers were the most famous. Andy Tielman, their leader, died last year:

Which band are you referring to? Do you mean the band from the '80s called Japan?

There is a Japanese heavy metal band called Loudness from the 80s. They still tour the world even to this day. Good stuff. It doesn't hurt that they sing in English too.

Another one that will get you going for sure, Outrage:



Here is another Japanese band, Galneryus:
