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. OPM may also be read as original Pinoy music or original Philippine music, but they all refer to the same thing, and that is Filipino pop songs and ballads.

These are the best original Pilipino music artists of all time, ranked best to worst by fans. Originating in Manila, OPM emerged in the 70s and grew more popular in the 80s and 90s when new filipino bands like Smokey Mountain and Donna Cruz came on the scene.. 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.

So if you are a fan and you see that your favorite band is missing from this original Pinoy music list, go ahead and add them! After all, this is supposed to be a complete list of the best original Pilipino music artists and bands.
