If so, you're at the right place. This is the best OPM, or original Pilipino music artists list, including artists such as the Eraserheads and Aegis as well as Sarah Geronimo and Yeng Constantino.

These are the best original Pilipino music artists of all time, ranked best to worst by fans.

This list of original Pilipino music bands includes all musicians who have released recordings that have gotten distribution since that time and is an up-to-date list.

Many of the songs are in English--but great tagalog music can also be categorized as OPM. This list of OPM bands includes additional details about the artists, including other genres they play and a brief overview of them if available. These are truly the greatest original Pilipino music bands of all time, since true fans have voted for them.
