It’s a new year! As we look to start fresh this 2021, we can’t help but to reminisce our former years — when things were simpler and COVID-free. The early 2000s was a decade best defined by its music. Arguably one of the best eras of OPM, many of us still come back to the classics of Eraserheads, Parokya ni Edgar, Itchyworms, and other beloved Pinoy artists.
