The Boyfriends was a funk-pop band famous for creating the classic disco hit Sumayaw, Sumunod. The group also spawned other Original Pilipino Music classics such as First Love and Bakit Labis Kitang Mahal. They are part of what is now called Manila Sound, a musical genre that began in late 1960's Manila and flourished in the early to middle 1970s. It is often looked upon as the "bright side" of the Martial Law era and has influenced all modern genres in the country as the forerunner to OPM.
