Bittersweet can get in top 5.. Come on guys.. Disagree is suck.. Hujan deserve at number 1 because they have a really good guitarist (ag coco).. The time also didn't cool at all..

BIttersweet's sound is kind of unique

A unique sound unheard of from any bands I've listened to before. Truly revolutionary in the history of Malaysian music. Noh's lyrical genius and AG's unique guitar skills are something to focus on when listening to this band. I have great expectations from this band in times to come.

The combination of guitar skills, creative lyrics and good showman-ship make Hujan the best! This band gonna be legend! Trust me..

The best melody ever~ complicated chording. Universal and not consist of only rock music but all, jazz. Seriously, Hujan is the best in my optioning.

The greatest Indie band in Malaysia

Butterfingers is simply underrated and unfortunately didn't quite receive the acclamation that the band deserve. Butterfingers is certainly not a one-hit-wonder kinda band. The band has transcended in terms of musical quality of what was available in the local underground scene. It's a privilege to have listened to butter music.

Weird to NOT see this band in the top 5. Full of originality, multi-genres, on of the earliest (first perhaps? ) english-singing indie band to be popular!

Its 2015 but this band is really a different from the others for me,

Butterfinger is Malaysia version of Nirvana! The Best!

LEGEND! This band is in the different class.. Can't compare them.. Butterfingers also.. Living legend.. Their music are really inspired.. Come on

Oag is the first band that brought Malaysian indie / underground scene to mainstream attention. They can simply called "The Father of Malaysian Indie Band" along with Butterfingers, ACAB..

Best moment for me is listen to OAG's songs...

They are basically an OAG in another form and direction (all are ex members of OAG). They music are ahead of time and can be revolutionary band in Malaysian scene if not for their internal problem and conflict with the label.

My number one favorite band in Malaysia. They music has big influence in my life. The reason I started to make band.. Long Live The Times!

Nice form of music, the lyrics are simple so as the music..

Simply indie
