The Eraserheads was one of the most popular Pinoy rock bands in the Philippines during the alternative rock explosion of the early 1990s. The Eraserheads is also regarded as the band that opened the commercial doors for other aspiring Filipino Rock bands like Rivermaya, Parokya ni Edgar, and Yano. Their fans affectionately call them "E-heads."
The band's debut album, Ultraelectromagneticpop, released in 1993 by BMG Records, was a commercial success. The album also brought the underground "college rock" scene into public awareness.
Their influence and contribution to Philippine music today is so great that they have often been called the "The Beatles of the Philippines."
In 1997, they won an award in the 1997 MTV Video Music Awards in New York, USA and the song "Ang Huling El Bimbo" won the Asian Viewer's Choice Award the previous year.
