Mga Pinoy Rock Bands--Daw

Shitty pinoy rock bands should be annihilated because:

1. They are everywhere.
2. They produce 1,000,000,000 of their kind faster than a virus.
3. They cause ear bleeding and deafness.
4. They cause death.
5. They cause dead people to rise from their graves.

Whenever I see or worse, hear these "rock bands", I feel doing nothing but impaling my eardrums with a 10-foot long nail.

First there's Hale who can't seem to break out of their own little teeny-emo world. All of their songs sound and feel the same--only the lyrics differ. Add Champ Lui-Pio's whiny vocals which seems to come from his sinuses, and you have a song ruling the top of radio and music charts.
Hale also has a penchant for writing songs which your two-year-old brother can compose while sucking on his pacifier.

There's a blue sky waiting tomorrow
Waiting tomorrow
Shining, shimmering...

Every time I hear this song I'm always tempted to add "splendid" on that last line.

Oh, and having a squid as a drummer doesn't help.


Lagi na lang umuulan
Parang walang katapusan...

You saw this coming didn't you? Well how can we forget the band which got its name from no less than the amazing Filipino afternoon snack, banana cue.

CUESHE(t)! Kyushey, kyushe,'s up to you how you pronounce their band name.

Now this is a band whose career depends on the sopport of Ati's and Koya's in every households in the archipelago through text messages they send to Myx.

The success of this band can be attributed to its handsome, sexy and charismatic lead vocalist--Jay. Behold the object of lust of all the Ati's in the Philippines...

Their songs, like all other pinoy rock bands, sounds the same. Repetitive guitar riffs, twanging sound effects, oooohhh-ing back-up singers and Ruben's vein-busting vocals (complimented of course with Jay's smooth, suave and sexy voice).

This is an example of a snail mail sent to My Myx:

hi myx viowirs and veejees. m lilibith frm the meeds quarter of a mansion in wack-wack. i wud like to rikwist the song Stay by cueshe. i didikit dis song to my amo who not yet gave me yet my swildo for the months of eeprel and mee.

pls grit my bstprend rosalie who's amo mik her it dog fod. and also to my labs Jun-Jon. i love u to d ind of my brith.

Tnx Myx. hogs and kisses.


PS. pls show my pickchor in your show

There are a lot more bands but this post would go on forever if I don't stop now. Rest assured, 6 Cyclemind, Sponge Cola and a pile of others are included in the list.


Okay, back to the topic.

Another thing I hate is the current fad of reviving old songs. It all started with Ultraelectromagnetic Jam, which should really be Ultraelectromagnetic Junk.
Fuck almost all the renditions suck!

Now, even Nora Aunor's song that goes Parang kailan lang, ang mga pangarap ko'y kay hirap abutin... is being revived.

Just shows how low the music industry is right now. They can't make decent songs so they use revivals as scapegoats. Easy production, easy success, easy money.

Now, if revivals can't be helped, at least make it as good as the original. Making it better, in my opinion, is asking for too much.

I'm waiting for a band to revive "My Way" and perform it in the UP Fair with the Sunken Garden filled with various "punx" groups such as: Punks of Antipolo, Punx of Taguig, Punks of Malabon and Rakizta ng Makati.

Whoopee! Prepare for stray bullets and bottles filled with punk pee. Whoopee! I can smell bloodshed!

I'm hoping that band would be Hale but Cueshe is not so bad.


The difference between the music before and the music now, is that the former is regarded as art; the latter a commodity.

Old songs until now, are being sung--and revived. The new breed of songs meanwhile only lasts until the public consumes it. Or until it reaches its expiration date.

The Day You Said Goodnaaaaaaahhhhhhhhaaaaayt!

I agree with you in regards to Hale and Cueshe. But Spongecola... they're actually decent compared to the two bands previously mentioned.

rock bands are overrated. i was glad when they were first coming to the scene because before that, dickheads like sarah geronimo, erik santos, and others were dominating.

but now...

there's just TOO many of them!!

don't even get me started on revivals.

what i hate most is when pop stars like those mentioned above redo rock songs. like erik doing your love... owemgeee... wtf?!

i'm done with hale and cueshe. i've already shown my hatred for them. i've moved on.

i liked spongecola when they were just starting out.

kaso kundi lang sophisticated ang dating nila (yea know.. kase they graduated from the ARINEO and everythuuunngg...), malamang pati sila Ati at Koya adeek na rin sa kanila.

inimbento mo lang ba yung sulat sa myx? at yung pic, san mo nakuha? xD

Pasensya na Poli wala talaga akong kamuwang-muwang sa musika (kanina).

Pero ngayon dahil nabasa ko na ang iyong entry nawala na ang aking kamangmangan.

1. Galing pala sa banana cue ang pangalan ng cueshe
2. Rip-off ng isang disney classic yung lyrics nila
3. Patok na patok pala sa mga Ati and Kuya of the world ang kanilang kanta
4. Maaring marevive ulit ang otso-otso at mga kanta ni April Boy Regino sa hinaharap.

Sulat ka ulit Poli tungkol sa Music para maeducate ulit ako. XD

spongecola's actually nice before yael got his egomania publicized. but with their musical talent as of the moment, icant believe you decided to ditch them in your entry for the sake of your laziness

whoever sang that revival of sharon cuneta's classic got to have this logo ihave on my mind right now for her album: A GIGANTIC THUMBS DOWN

ohyes. we're supposed to be talking of rockbands. but arent those wimpy cuneta-wannabes the very vocalists of the industry's current 'rockers'?

I remember reading Hale's lyrics one boring afternoon.

And my brain promptly hibernated.


Let's not even talk about Cueshe, who claims that they do not know Silver Chair. Fuckers.

The best thing you can give those people is apathy. Really, they deserve it.

At first I was happy that finally, the Filipinos are getting their share of the light from American singers, but when they started to multiply like maggots, gah...

Quantity versus Quality, dear.
