Hmmm, I wouldnt call all OPM garbage now and days. There are a FEW good rock bands out there still. But for the most part, they still sound like the lead singer of E-heads and PArokya ni Edgar. those two bands will NEVER die. Awesome.
As for rap, I still think Gloc 9 is the sheit. I dont know if they have him on youtube, but I'm sure they have him on mypace. I dont do myspace, but I saw my sister search for him and a whole buncha Cali people hooked myspace up with Gloc 9.
Songs that I would recommend first and foremost is :
Well it's partly because Ely Buendia (the founder of E-heads) founded two other bands, Mongol and Pupil. Parokya is great, they have this irreverent style that I like. There is another long-standing alternative rock band, Rivermaya. Even though Bamboo left them several years back, they are still going strong.
Here are some links for the artists you mentioned.

kitchie nadal for da winn
kitchie nadal=sexy <____<
gloc 9 for rap purposes i guess is good
rock bands=sounds all the same , good songs to listen to but admittedly, the voices start to blend together and sound the same, although i like the songs
like i said, i haven't listened to pinoy rock all that much lately mostly slower more romantic oldies
kyla, d00de even...sharon cuneta
WOOT FOR DA OLDIE OPMS (even though i'm not...old..)
Kitchie Nadal is very good (well being the former lead vocalist of Mojofly wouldn't hurt) :p . Yeng's voice is being compared to her voice which is sort of a pinoy Alanis Morissette. I hope to see a new album from her soon.

Speaking of oldies, Lea Salonga has a new album out. Sounds great.
