* Local rock station LA 105.9 banned the song "Posporo" (Matches) by teenage punk band Public Menace due to complaints from Marlboro and Philip Morris parent Philip Morris International Philippines. The anti-smoking song included lines like "sige, humithit ka" ("c'mon, take a puff") and "sige, mamamatay" ("c'mon, you're gonna die") sung to the tune of the Philip Morris jingle (which is, in itself based on The Brass Ring's 1966 easy-listening hit "The Disadvantages of You"), and the outro sounding like the Marlboro jingle. It remains one of the few examples of [[TheMan big business]] forcing a Filipino song to be pulled from air forever by threats of litigation.

* In 1995, Senator Vicente "Tito" Sotto, also a famous comedian and once a singer in a rock band in the '60s, earned the ire of rock fans when he called for the ban of three songs -- "Alapaap" (Skies) by the Eraserheads, a song about being young, open-minded, and happy, "Laklak" (Drinking Booze) by the Teeth, a song of an adult drunk's booze-fueled journey from youth to present, and "Iskolar ng Bayan" (The Town Scholar) by Yano, about stuck-up rich kids in the band members' alma mater. The appeal for the ban went nowhere, and arguably painted a picture of Sotto being out on a witch hunt against young rock bands of the present due to his conservative, old-fashioned leanings.

According to Sotto, "Alapaap" and "Iskolar ng Bayan" glorified drug use, while "Laklak" promoted underage drinking.
