Parokya ni Edgar still the best: Bagsakan II enters the countdown

Bagsakan II's success shows that PNE still have the charisma to the mass. They've been a band more than a decade. They started in 1993 in Ateneo de Manila. PNE has different musical genres from poprock to alternative rock. They provide novelty in most of their songs.

Their first studio album was released in 1996, the "Khangkhungkherrnitz". Their single Buloy became a success and it make them known all over the Philippines. After the success of the triple platinum Khangkhungkherrnitz, it was followed by another album (Buruguduystunstugudunstuy) which also became a triple platinum. Buruguduystunstugudunstuy's track includes Harana, Sayang and Please Don't touch My Birdie. It also became a successful album which lead Parokya ni Edgar to become a foundation of the new OPM bands in the late-90s.

Despite the weird names of their albums, PNE became famous with their melancholic and novelty songs. After the release of their live album Inuman Sessions Vol. 1 in 2004, PNE presented their fans a new live album. It is the Inuman Sessions Vol. 2.

The first single of the album, "Bagsakan" has already hit the daily chart eventhough it is already famous and just a revival to their own parokya classic  with Francis M. It already reach the 3rd spot of the countdown, succeeding the Eraserheads classic "Minsan".

The first Bagsakan was released in 2005 together with The Ordertaker, Para Sa'yo, Mang Jose, First Day Funk and Papa Cologne. All these songs are included in the album "Halina sa Parokya" and these songs became mainstream and famous. (I'm still a high-schooler then, listening to their songs.)

It is expected that Bagsakan II will topped the charts next week not because of the huge fan-based of PNE but because of their place in the heart of the society. They contributed to the OPM industry for 13 years, so it will not be a shock if their songs will topped the charts again and again.

PNE is a band that able to stand still and a band that can withstand the test of time.

  1. Parokya's songs have really entered the Filipino consciousness. I remember hearing their early songs in LA105 (before the band became mainstream). Very fun!

  2. PNE is my generation and until now PNE tells stories about my generation. Looking forward to devour their new album.

  3. I really like the Harana song. Good lyrics based on Filipino culture and very cool delivery and easy to sing too.
