CPM 22 is a
Brazilian band from São Pauloformed in 1995.
Band members are Fernando Estefano (known as Badauí, lead vocals), Ricardo Di Roberto (Japinha, drums and backing vocals), Eduardo Ippolito Torrado Gomes (Wally, rhythm guitar and backing vocals), Fernando Sanches Takara (Fernandinho, bass guitar) and Luciano Garcia (Luciano, lead guitar).
With influences from the
Ramones, The Misfits, Buzzcocks, Pennywise, Green Day, and other old school punk and hardcore legends, CPM 22 recorded their first demo tape in 1998.
Their popularity in the Brazilian underground scene led CPM 22 to record the independent album "A Alguns Quilômetros de Lugar Algum" (A Few Kilometers From Nowhere).Two years later they were included in the Brazilian
MTVvideo-music award in the demo clip category with "Anteontem" (The Day Before Yesterday).
In 2001, they signed with
Abril Musicand released their first mainstream album called "CPM 22" with many hits, including "Regina, Let's Go", "Tarde de Outubro" (October Afternoon) and "O Mundo Dá Voltas" (The World Turns), playing on Brazilian radios.
At the end of 2002, they released "Chegou a Hora de Recomecar" (Now's The Time To Start Over). CPM 22 reached the top of their popularity in Brazil with songs including "Desconfio" (I Suspect), "Ontem" (Yesterday), "Não Sei Viver Sem Ter Você" (I Don't Know How to Live Without You), "Dias Atrás" (Days Ago), "Peter" and "Garota da TV" (TV Girl).
They are often seen on Brazilian television shows, remarkable for a band which recently played in the
São Paulounderground. Such popularity led to complaints from old-time fans that the band had "sold out", forgetting its roots by creating songs to be played on top 40radios and populist Sunday TV shows like " Domingão do Faustão" and " Domingo Legal".
Recently, they released "Inevitável" (Unavoidable), a successful song which returns the band to its
