Fight for My Way - My Way killings - Netflix

The “My Way” killings are a social phenomenon in the Philippines, referring to a number of fatal disputes which arose due to the singing of the song “My Way”, popularized by Frank Sinatra (peaking at #27 on Billboard Hot 100 in 1969), in karaoke bars. A New York Times article estimates the number of killings to be about six up to 2010. Another source estimates at least 12 between 2002–2012. Opinions differ over whether the possible connection is due to the coincidence that the song was simply frequently sung amid the nation's karaoke bars where violence is common or to the aggressive lyrics of the song itself.

Fight for My Way - History - Netflix

In the decade up to 2010, about a half dozen incidents occurred in the Philippines in connection with strenuous complaints over the singing of the song, prompting Filipino newspapers to name the phenomenon the “'My Way' killings”. On May 29, 2007, a 29-year-old karaoke singer of “My Way” at a bar in San Mateo, Rizal, was shot dead as he sang the tune, allegedly by the bar's security guard, who was arrested after the incident. According to reports, the guard complained that the young man's rendition was off-key, and when the victim refused to stop singing, the guard pulled out a .38-caliber pistol and shot the man dead. Karaoke singing is a widespread pastime in the Philippines, including among the poor, where many were earning about $2 a day in 2007 and could purchase time on a karaoke machine (called “videoke” machines in the Philippines) for 5 pesos (about 10 cents in US currency).
