Biography

Parokya ni Edgar is a Filipino band that was formed in 1993 by a group of Ateneo de Manila High School students. The band is famous and most lauded for its original rock novelty songs and often satirical covers of famous songs. The band has since transcended musical genres, varying styles from one song to another - alternative rock to pop rock, funk to rapcore, and so on - while providing comic relief to their listeners.

Before Parokya ni Edgar
Naming themselves Comic Relief, the band originally consisted of three vocalists - Alfonso "Chito" Miranda, Jr. , Gabrielle Ignatius "Gab" Chee-Kee, Francis Vincent "Vinci" Montaner, and two guitarists, Miko and Jerick. The honed their musical skills through after-school jamming, before performing an opening number for an Eraserheads concert. This break prompted the band to add a drummer and a bassist - enter Dindin Moreno and Buhawi Meneses. This same performance also marked the change of the band's name to Parokya ni Edgar.[clarify] After high school, Miko and Jerick, the two guitarists, left the band to pursue other interests. As a replacement, the remaining band members invited to their fold guitarist Darius SemaƱa. (lead guitarist)

Parokya ni Edgar
The band's name has been said to have been derived from an old classroom joke involving the main character in the Jose Rizal novel Noli Me Tangere, one of their school subjects.

The band soon started playing at the legendary local band hub, Club Dredd. Coming out during the height of the Pinoy rock explosion, with the Filipino rock community giving in to the influence of foreign bands, especially grunge acts such as Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Soundgarden, Parokya ni Edgar played like no other. Their jokes, silly antics, and outrageous performances paved the way to the popularity that they currently enjoy.

Eventually, the late Bella Dy Tan, managing director of Universal Records signed them up as contract artists after viewing a gig at Club Dredd. Soon their initial recordings such as Buloy, Trip and Lutong Bahay were heard across the nation. Their first album, Khangkhungkherrnitz became a triple platinum hit in the Philippines.


Musical legacy
Since their inception, Parokya ni Edgar's have enjoyed unmatched staying power in the recording scene of the Philippines. Chito Miranda has served as the band's frontman, filtering the band's output to the taste of its audience. Close associates and friends of the band point out that the band's easy-going, self-effacing persona is calculated and, to a certain extent, planned.

@ First Day Funk

it's suppost to be like this:

"First day funk"

Lets do the funk, Lets do the first day funk (2*)

First day of school dapat cool na cool
Dapat talaga maganda na ang pag pasok
Mas cool pa sa tubig ng swimming pool
Pag pasok mo ng classroom dapat umuusok
Wag na wag kang mapapraning sagot kita diretso ang tingin di dapat ma atat na mapansin kahit hot lahat dapat chil padin

Hinding-hindi yumuyuko kahit na nakaupo
Di ko sinasabi na dapat maging mayabang,
Pero dapat maging mahiyaing halaman
Confidence chong lakas loob wag na wag matataob
Kahit sa tapat ng maganda mong kaklase
Mas lalo na sa prof mong mukang Salbahe,.Dance

Lets do the funk, Lets do the first day funk(4*)

Itaas ang kamay iwagayway
Salut the prof at sabay kaway
Mag klasmate hi-5 lang kayo now don't be shy kaiskwela to
Just raise your hand kung my sagot
If you don't know the answer edi lagot
Just erase the board at mag sayaw
Lagyan ng funk ang pag galaw SAYAW!

Lets do the funk, Lets do the first day funk(4*)

Ng may dumating na isang babae sobrang hottie na kaklase
Siyay lumapit at nag "hi" ako namay na pakaway
Akala ko ako ang kanyang kinakawayan
At hindi ko inakala ang nasa likuran
Kahi na na pahiya hindi ako kinabahan
Wala na ito ibang mapupuntahan SAYAW!

Lets do the funk, Lets do the first day funk(4*)

Itaas ang kamay iwagayway
Salut the prof at sabay kaway
Mag klasemate hi-5 lang kayo now don't be shy kaiskwela to
Just raiseyour hand kung may sagot
If you don't know the edi lagot
Just earase the board at mag sayaw
Lagyan ng funk ang pag galaw SAYAW!

Lets do the funk, Lets do the first day funk(8*)
