The Philippines Parokya ni Edgar: They're probably the coolest Pinoy band. Alive. They're just basically friends just hanging around and play some music. They've been together for like 14 years and still kickin' around. Sorry for the bad quality lol [youtube]xjJnQoRAiE8[/youtube] Francis Magalona: He's like Eminem in the Philippines. He died last 2009. He's a legend in Filipino music. [youtube]a3OaWLD9iiw[/youtube] Greyhoundz: If talking about metal, I would give them the stage. [youtube]_FxJseopSbY[/youtube] Slapshock: Formed in 90's. They're pretty good. This song was my ringtone for almost 3 years. Time flies. [youtube]KT7jjpFBKz8&feature=related[/youtube] Bamboo: Pretty much the most hype rock band in 'Pinas. Too bad they disbanded last year. Most of their songs are about the economic and political status of 'Pinas. [youtube]QKe5U-sqeY0[/youtube] Also, Kamikazee: Another WTF band. I like them. This song with special participation of Parokya ni Edgar, Cheese and Greyhoundz. [youtube]7wStWzpGo7Q[/youtube] I'm pretty sure there are lots of great Pinoy bands out there that I'm not familiar with. I'm just lame.
