Kamikazee is a Filipino pop punk band formed in 2000. The band is composed of Jay Contreras, Jomal Linao, Led Tuyay, Puto Astete and Bords Burdeos. The band is composed of five members who met in college at the College of Fine Arts of the University of the Philippines, Diliman. Kamikazee's early gigs were mostly on-campus events in UP Diliman like the annual UP Fair. Before they were signed to a major label, they went by the name "Kamikazee Cornflakes", eventually shortened to the current name"Kamikazee" for easier memory. Their early shows included renditions of the songs "Mmm Sarap", "Tsinelas", a cover ofAriel Rivera's "Sana Kahit Minsan", and Britney Spears' Lucky. Their live performances have since been known for using expletives, sexually suggestive dances, and references to genitalia.
