90's era is also the period of the emergence of OPM hits. Many amateur artists came out of the music scene towards stardom and audience applause. The rock/alternative opm songs were the most prevalent opm music genre in the 90's. Different bands showcased their craft in music instruments regardless if they produced a defeaning or mellow melody in our ears. * I can say Eraserheads had been the most popular OPM bands in the 90's. Most of their songs became the favorite of public despite the speculations of wrong messages in the lyrics of their songs. Most of their songs reached the #1 spot in radio countdowns * Rivermaya is the firm rival of Eraserheads. They have also introduced songs which became popular in the music scene. Similar to E-heads, the lyrics of their songs seemed to bring wrong messages in the public. Bamboo, who was the lead singer of this group, has been influential in the music industry * Parokya ni Edgar emerged during late 90's with their introductory hit 'Buloy' under their album where its name is very lengthy and hard to pronounce. After 'Buloy' came another big hits which brought appeal to the public ears. They are still active in the music scene until now * Famous solo artists like Regine Velasquez, Ogie Alcasid, Cacai Velasquez, Agot Isidro, Janno Gibbs, Jose Marie Chan, Vina Morales, Donna Cruz, Ding Dong Avanzado, Rachel Alejandro, Sharon Cuneta, Janno Gibbs, Wency Cornejo, Jet Pangan, Paco Arespacochaga entered into the music industry * Francis M. introduced the rap genre in OPM music. Andrew E and Michael V were some of the artists who followed Francis M's music path. * We have also seen the popularity of songs by Renz Verano, Jolina Magdangal, April Boy Regino, Tootsie Guevarra, Roselle Nava and the like which were considered as 'jologs' during the dawn of the 90's and the prelude of 2000's * One-hit wonder artists/groups like Prettier than Pink, H-Bomb, Vanna Vanna, Allona, LA Lopez, Nelson del Castillo, Jude Michaels, Rockstar, Second Wind, Teeth, Grin Department, POT, DJ Alvaro, Weedd, Mike Lewis, Inertia, Ito Rapadas, Tunay Na Amo, Kulay, Wyrd, Rannie Raymundo, Immaculate, The Moss, The Boss, Men Oppose, Wiseguys * Other famous bands which are still active in the music scene til 2000's like True Faith, Color It Red, Siakol, The Dawn, Retrospect, Freestyle, Wolfgang, Side A, Mojofly, Moonstar 88, Sandwich, Southborder, Passage * Other fammous bands which were not active in the 2000's like Alamid, Teeth, Tropical Depression, Rizal Underground, Yano, After Image, Introvoys, Smokey Mountain, NeoColours, Hungry Young Poets, Orient Pearl

What is the OPM genre? I never heard of that. At first, I thought you were talking about one of my fave bands called OPM, but now I am confused. Does it stand for something??

OPM stands for Original Pilipino Music. These are actually Pilipino songs popularized in Philippines. If you live in Philippines, you will hear songs composed and arranged by Filipino artists. I'm a Filipino by blood and Philippines is my home country.
