In the early 1970s Pinoy music or
is used as an adjective to some terms highlighting their relationship to the Philippines or Filipinos. Pinoy rock wassoon followed by Pinoy folk and later, Pinoy jazz.
Although the music was often used to express opposition tothen Philippine president Ferdinand Marcos and his use of martial law and the creating of the Batasang Bayan, manyof the songs were more subversive and some just instilled national pride. Perhaps because of the cultural affirmingnature and many of the songs seemingly being non-threatening, the Marcos administration ordered radio stations toplay at least one - and later, three - Pinoy songs each hour.
Pinoy music was greatly employed both by Marcosand political forces who sought to overthrow him.
