NU Rock Awards


NU Rock Awards

The NU Rock Awards was an annual recognition program sponsored from 1994 to 2010 by the defunct Metro Manila based radio station NU 107.

1. 1994 saw the birth of what is to become the biggest annual gathering of the finest rock musicians in the country—the NU 107 Rock Awards! The very first NU 107 Rock Awards was held in a place called The Music Hall in Annapolis St. Greenhills. What was meant to be a small gathering to give recognition to the finest people in the rock community has become the BIGGEST and most-anticipated rock event in the country.

2. The first ever Song of the Year Award was given to Alamid for the song “Your Love.” The song then went on to rule the airwaves and was in fact the very first NU 107 exclusive to cross over to other formats.

3. The Dawn is the perennial Rock Awards band having performed in 11 editions of the Rock Awards.

4. The first ever Video of the Year was given to “Ang Huling El Bimbo” by the Eraserheads.

5. In the whole history of the Rock Awards there has only been one tie. In 1999, the judges deemed both Wolfgang’s “Serve in Silence” and Sandwich’s “Grip Stand Throw” as that year’s Albums of the Year.

6. Raimund Marasigan is the individual with the most number of awards won at the NU Rock Awards, for his work as a member of Eraserheads and Sandwich, and as album producer for other several bands.

7. The first ever band to win the Rock Awards’ Raw Award was Fatal Posporos. The Raw Awards is given to the best unsigned artist of the year.

8. In 2000, the Rock Awards’ “Punk’s Not Dead” all-star tribute band performed a medley of past Song of the Year winners, of course in the style of The Ramones. It was composed of Myra Ruaro (Brownbeat All Stars), Louie Talan (Razorback), Diego Castillo (Sandwich), Raimund Marasigan (Sandwich), Zach Lucero and Aia de Leon (Imago (band)).

9. In 2004, NU107, acknowledging the growing role of females in the local rock scene, gave out the first ever Female Rock Icon Award to Cynthia Alexander.

10. Before it became a rock anthem of sorts, Bamboo’s “Noypi” was first performed at the 2003 NU 107 Rock Awards, even before their album As The Music Plays came out.

11. Despite a typhoon, 2004’s Rock Awards was NU 107’s most attended yet, with over 4,000 rock fans filling the World Trade Center.

12. 2005's Rock Awards has already set a record of sorts, with the most ever nominees for Song Of The Year Award with 12.

13. Afterimage became the very first winner of the Artist of the Year award in 1994.

14. In 1994, the first-ever Album of the Year award was presented to the Eraserheads' debut album UltraElectroMagneticPop!. The Eraserheads also bagged the Album of the Year award for the next two years with their albums Circus (1995) and Cutterpillow (1996), making them the only artist in Rock Awards history to win in the same category three years in a row.
