Juan de la Cruz Band was a Filipino rock band formed in 1968, that pioneered what became known as Pinoy rock. Founding guitarist Wally Gonzalez passed away this year at the age of 71.
In 1971, they released their first album as a quintet, and thereafter gained momentum when it performed in a rock opera with the Manila Symphony Orchestra, the first production of its kind in the country.

The album[Himig Natin] contains their signature song "Titser's Enemi No.1". Do not miss it!
