A lot has happened in the Malaysian music scene over the years. We've had our boom of pop, punk, rock, and hip-hop, and over the years, names have come and gone. A few names stand out throughout these times; bands like OAG, Bunkface, Too Phat, and Estranged are probably familiar to a few of us and some other names like Nakedbreed and Disagree strike lesser chords. Though bands come and go, there is never a shortage of new blood vying for mainstream glory and sometimes, for the love of music, musicians reinvent themselves to go at it all over again.
