5 local music acts to blast when someone claims OPM is dead

New rule: The next time someone claims “OPM is dead,” they have to state the year of their last fave OPM song and the year they last actively watched music shows on TV. If the years match, everyone in that conversation is allowed to talk over them until they go away. 

Let’s be real. The only people who claim OPM has passed on to becoming a vague, distant memory are people who don’t listen to OPM at all. Period. 

OPM is dead? On the contrary, our music community has never been more alive and vibrant with increasingly experimental, genre-bending sounds being explored by indie and mainstream musicians. So next time someone tries to make conversation with “OPM is dead 🙁 ” turn your volume up and drown their biased nostalgia with the new generation of Original Pinoy Music.
