Top 10 Philippine Rock Bands of All Timeaeromaxx777
The Top Ten
Greatest Pinoy Band of All Time! They were not called the Beatles of the Philippines for nothing! The only OPM Band who have a Diamond Album status and has a single who is one of the Greatest OPM songs of All Time in and Huling El Bimbo. Saan ka pa? Eraserheads rules!
All of the emerging bands are always compared to the eraserheads. Eheads is the yardstick used to measure all Pinoy bands. All other bands in this list would not exist without the eraserheads.
Can Parokya ni Edgar beat a band where their songs were already sang by the mass before they release their album?
Great band of all timeee246 Comments

They are so cool, all the song that they made relate the filipino's life on how they show their love to their love once..
Amazing creativity in the lyrics and unpredictable mix of hip-hop and 90s rock
Natatatiling buo na one of the greatest band ng pinas!108 Comments
Juan Dela Cruz is the foundation of Philippine Rock bands!
Without Juan dela Cruz band there would be no Pinoy Rock
Juan dela cruz should be in number 1 position.
Juan dela Cruz band is the GOAT! Need I say more?
Juan Dela Cruz is the Philippine's closest thing to Led Zeppelin22 Comments
You are the icon of metal scene of the philippines
You guys rock. You are Metallica of the Philippines. Old school rock and roll. One of the best of our time. You would appreciate almost all of their songs in all of their album.
Wolfgang is the best band OPM has to offer. They got the talent and the creativity of writing legendary music for the universe to hear. This band is definitely should be higher than a lot of bands above them. Best heavy metal band in the Philippines and even Asia.
Their music can be compared to foreign rock music. I think they are the only filipino band that was able to release an album overseas.. And their lyrics are not for the shallow minded21 Comments
This is the best band ever! The original, Rico, Mark, Nathan, and Bamboo. up to the new generation, Mark, Mike, Japs, and Jayson. Tuloy ang ligaya!
This should place higher than the 12th place! This band is named Banda ng Bayan together with Parokya!
This band is great. Their songs were pretty good and while you listening to their songs you can truly understand the lyrics of their songs and it's also interesting! Rico Blanco is one of the best songwriter in the Philippines but the bad news is Rico Blanco is now like Bamboo they are now both R&B singers. Ely Buendia is still the best and loyal pinoy rock icon in the Philippines!
Rico blanco is one of the greatest songwriter in the Philippines, rivermaya's hits are unbreakable.35 Comments
BAMBOO! GREAT SINGER... GREAT BAND... GREAT MUSIC! "AS THE MUSIC PLAYS LIGHT YEARS FROM NOW, WE STAND ALONE TOGETHER AS TOMORROW BECOMES YESTERDAY! "
Bamboo is great! Their music is so good... And the members have their own capabilities in playing their instrument..
great vocal power, great songs, great band, greatest Filipino rock band ever...
Unique music plus the best vocals of the frontman. You coudn't ask more.52 Comments
Their lyrics are very unique and interesting. It is so great, their voices' harmony is perfect. I like it very much!
Down right crazy and kicking ass and taking names... Keep rocking
This is the best41 Comments
Every person have their own likes when it comes to music. Some want classic songs, rock musics, heavy metals, hip hop musics, and etc, some prefer country songs, ballads, love songs, and pop music. People choose for their favorite songs and/or bands that somehow at some point they can relate in the message brought by their favorite music. And sometimes, it also shows personality; it expresses emotions, life experiences, and things that is really true in this world.
I prefer Siakol as my favorite OPM Band. "SIAKOL" is pertaining to be free, happy and sometimes a naughty state of mind. What makes Siakol be my favorite Pinoy Rock band is that all there songs is originally composed and written by their vocalist Mr. Manuel "Noel" Rivera Palomo. And another is, all there composed master piece are very fascinating, it makes you realize that it is really true and somehow open your eyes or senses and makes you smile.
God bless Siakol...
Siakol.. One of the best bands with very great songs. They're song are sing with. Ang daling sabayan. , and some songs contains lyrics which are true to the real world and shows reality of life and politics. A patriotic band indeed. Siakol is really a great band for me. Shine again SIAKOL at GAWING LANGIT ANG MUNDO..!
The best punk band in the Philippines

"Still active and awesome"
Slapshock is one of the premier rapmetal bands of the Philippines.
Whilst the band entered the business playing rapmetal, the members are influenced by a lot of rock sub-genres: Grunge, Metal, and glam, to name a few. It is upon hearing Rage Against the Machine that all the members of Slapshock all connected at the same time and decided that yes, they want to do something as prolific as Rage.
It is hard to brush aside a band as talented and hard working as Slapshock. Never negligent nor lenient, the band continues to grow, experiment, and mature. As such, Slapshock continues to make believers and fans of regular listeners and casual audiences.
Best metal band of the Philippines along with Cheese and Greyhoundz..
Only band that can create an army of fans and I'm one of them. Long leave Slapshock we here the Slap army to support
First time I listen to their music, I just got hooked up right away! I will definitely buy their album when I get back home. forever support filipino rock and roll.34 Comments
I really like dong abay of yano
Yano is like, what the hell. I'll have to say every good thing about them if I have to say one. Suffice to say that Banal Na Aso has the greatest guitar solo ever from a fellow Filipino. Eric is a guitar god. Anyway, getting incoherent here. I don't have much time. I'll just end this message for now by saying that Yano's a close second to Eraserheads, and would have topped my personal list if they went on to be more prolific. But in the end, their 1994 self-titled debut is the best album ever made in the Philippines. Not even Cutterpillow can touch it.
Simple yano the best9 Comments
ONE OF THE FOUNDATIONS OF ROCK MUSIC. THE SOUND OF THE DAWN LIVES!
Almost all their songs has a very good and intellectual lyrics. A serious band... Rock on the dawn!
The Dawn ruled the new wave / alternative airwaves during the 80's.
This band should be placed higher, should be on the top 5. The Dawn opened up the gates for the local bands and that includes Eraserheads.12 Comments
One of the most popular band... & is sponge cola and I like the way they play their music.. & ROck! And ROll
A very versatile and sensible band! Not to mention that they are now a certified diamond record awardee!
This should at #3
This band needs more love and support. I know Eheads and Parokya, pero I never once believed na inferior sa dalawa and sponge cola. They have innovative songs. Their music is great.29 Comments
Great Musicianship. Great lyrics and great inspiration to the broken hearted individuals. Definitely worthy to be called the great band of the south.
Calla lily and Sponge Cola shouldn't be at the top ten. I think Urbandub and Franco is more worthy than them. Because Urbandub has a smooth lyrics and most people relates on their song. And the way they mix up their tune the way you'll hear them that's what you call ROCK.
Pride of ubec city... The giant sound of the south!
I think Urbandub sounds more rocking than Gracenote! Well that was my opinion because I'm a huge fan of this band forever URBANDUB!20 Comments
I really really love this band, this is my favorite because I think this band is so unique,.. especially the song "kismet"
Keep it up "silent sanctuary"
I'll be waiting for your new songs, ^_^
Their music not only touches our ears with its beautiful melody but also touches our heart because we can really relate our own experiences with their songs.
They play music as if we are reading our diaries and reliving our memories about love-first love, heartbreak, loving again, true love, etc.
Keep it up Silent Sanctuary!
I like all of their songs like dambana, sa'yo, paalam, bumalik ka na sa kin and etc also the violins is so lit also their drums especially their guitars
It was I was in first high school when it happened that silent sanctuary became my favorite band because of my crush when I was also still in first year that became my love ones...
Until now your my favorite band AND UNTIL NOW, (I'M NOW COLLEGE)HE'S STILL MY LOVE ONES...
LOVE YOU SILENT SANCTUARY! CONTINUE INSPIRING PEOPLE LIKE ME!
Gracenote. This band is the one of the best bands I've heard. When I first heard one of their songs, they instantly became my favorite. Gracenote also became my inspiration. This band inspired me to love and support OPM music more. I also have a band, and now because of Gracenote, I am more inspired and motivated to create music that will move the hearts of the listeners. Thanks Gracenote! More power. Gracenote is simply the best!
They really were awesome band! The first time I saw them playing their songs, I was easily got hooked, twas just like watching Paramore, Paramore but spiced with their own style and uniqueness... The members were young but yet, skilled and talented individuals... The thing that I liked the most about them was they're approachable and appreciative at the same time... That's why soon enough, they could possibly be in the limelight! ) don't stop stop, and keep on rocking' GRACENOTE!
I'm not really a fan of Paramore. I'm not even that much interested with their songs either.. However, Gracenote's unique way of delivering their cover of Paramore's songs really hooked me up. Even their own songs has that catchy tune that make people(fans or not) listen til the music ends..
They were still slowly starting the first time I heard them play, but I already know they would be "BIG" someday.. And they really did. They're fun, and play songs with their hearts.. Even fans can feel how they feel when they play.. They're true artists and can be great friends as well.. They treat their fans as if we all are just childhood friends.
In summary, Awesome band, Great Members, Cool Music.
P.S. kahit di kayo pumasok sa Top 10, you'll still be inside my list of Top 10 Philippine Rock Bands. Good Bless and More Power -edt-
MINSAN LANG NAMAN, FAR_AWAY, STOP STOP, KNOCK KNOCK, TAMA NA. Many more.. = gracenote! DO listen! SUPPORT OPM!59 Comments
This is funny. Instead of the band Asin, it became the name of indian actress and dancer. I thought this list is about pinoy bands. And everyone is very appreciating the band called asin, while the one being mention here is Asin Thottumkal of india. LOL...
Asin initiated songs about about our mother earth, war in Mindanao, love and the innocence of the children, using only acoustic guitars accompanied by genuine tunog pinoy instruments. Asin should be considered as one of the pillars of original pinoy music.
Their songs gives courage and that's why their songs never vanished legendary band
Pinoy Folk Rock Music Giants!6 Comments
A super group composed of old timers but nonetheless a breath of fresh air in the music scene! OPM at its finest. Not riding the pop bandwagon of this day and age, the band continues to make quality music. Not your usual average guitar and drum-wielding quartet.
Having ely Buendia as the frontman of this band, no wonder how can they make new music with new band members and of course new styles.
This four members are super massive together!
Super group and they played matured music5 Comments
I'm a 100% Japanese citizen but I love their songs even though it's difficult to understand, but I still love it, just like K-pop songs some of other country love k-pop song etc, but these band are unique and I hope that they have a lot of english songs so that these band well known not only in the Philippines but also around the world :)... Sorry if my english is bad kekeke
I hope t0 see them in person someday
Callalily was the BEST AMONG THE BEST band ever!
I was so in-love with this band way back 2006 or 2007 and until now.
I was 8 when Stars became my favorite song and Kean became my crush. Haha!
Kean, Aaron, Tatsi, Lem, and Alden (former member) got the looks and talents. Everything!
They have their original music. Kaka LSS pag narinig mo.
"Tulad ng mundong hindi tumitigil sa pag-ikot... "
GREAT! Sarap sa tenga!
And Destination XYZ was the best album ever!
Young Band with BIG DREAMS!
I really love the band.. Their songs are so cool.. Yeah.. Rock on callalistas
They are certified crowd drawer. Everywhere they go people scream and sing their hearts out with their songs. Those guys are sweethearts!19 Comments
Only few knows but this guys were revered by the bands of today, hard hitting lyrics of the first album!
Legendary fathers of Philippine Punk! I love their song "Metamorphosis"
Isa ito sa mga banda na habang buhay tatak sa mundo ng punk rock sa pinas
One of the punk legends...bobby balingit...should include dead ends, urban bandits, betrayed, rda, iov, gi and the idiots, chaos, collision, sex militants, zoot suit, private stocks, phil violators, deceased...
They've got such a great unique sound. They're world class musicians.
Who doesn't know at least one song from Up Dharma Down?
Best Lyrics, Great songs
Quality, original and unique. Awesome sound.13 Comments
People don't appreciate that much MYMP but for me they are on the top as the best OPM band. I really love most of their songs even some of the songs are just revival. They do have their own distinct flavor of music. Their acoustic songs are soothing to my ears. Juris is no doubt the best female vocalist ever in OPM industry.
I really like the songs MYMPS band played, especially the inspirational ones.
First of all, I don't think MYMP is a rock band. And most of their songs were revivals, they don't have many original songs. They mostly played songs that were famous before. I don't think that they have much contribution to "Original Pinoy Music." Though, Juris is a good artist, I just don't think that they contributed a great impact on Pinoy Rock Music.
I really love the song "I'll Never Get Over You Getting Over Me" since my elementary days! I love MYMP's acoustic style of singing!5 Comments
For they have generated a new kind of era mainly on pop-rock that instuated the birth of a lot of new acts, 6cyclemind opened doors for new acts in the industry.
Best band in the Philippines
Best band ever.. Lovely songs...
My fave bond ever5 Comments
Philippines SUPER BAND The lineup consists of Franco Reyes (of InYo) on vocals, Gabby Alipe (of Urbandub) on guitar, Paolo "8" Toleran (of Queso) on guitar, Buwi Meneses (of Parokya ni Edgar) on bass guitar, and JanJan Mendoza (of Urbandub) on drums. Jah love!
The best band so far, not so classic but surely is modern reggae. Jah! Rastafari!
This unique Superband is should be in the top 10 because it's the best on the industry when it comes to combining 2 very unique genres, reggea and rock. Jah Love for FRANCO
Franco Music is what's their life all about... Not only singing and playing... But with good style precision unique music and high standard members that made a multi genre to ROCK you World m/
Paraluman is a relatively new band of Alternative, Rock and Pop in the country's ever-busy music scene. Considered as one of the youngest band to ever hit Metro Manila, the band offers music that is daring and edgy yet versatile enough to shift from one genre to another. Sounds like Moonpools and Caterpillars, Plumb, Michelle Branch, D' Sound and Paramore but did not forget to incorporate their own style to the songs thus making it more interesting to the listening public.
Paraluman is composed of Madeline, Arjay, VR, Jay and Jimbo. Madeline Ramboyong with her fine crooning style make her worthy to front the band and handles the vocalist's duties. Arjay Romero plays the lead guitars while VJ Romero on bass. Jay Macalincag deals with the rhythm and Jimbo Cuenco complete the sounds with his drumming tactics. Though members are technically new in the field, some of them are experienced musicians from other bands and are very eager to learn more and grab every opportunities of ...more
One of the best band that I know! And all of their songs in In Lab! Album are originals, no remakes! All of their songs are great and beautiful! Their debut song Emily makes us think that this band has a very nice future and indeed all of their songs are VERY INSPIRING! They'll never let down their fans with new songs like Kapitan. The song Kapitan also have a good lesson. To be a good person and help others whoever you are makes us become heroes! I highly recommend this band it's because they have the best music, best vibes and best influence to us. The band are approachable they are so very very kind and thoughtful! And if you are lucky the band will approach you as well! Sweet! Keep up the good work Paraluman!
I love the voice of their vocalist "Madeline" and the way the band use to play their songs. Try to listen to their music just once, and you'll get hooked.
They're not the greatest but I love how their music makes you feel good. You'll know that they're playing with their Hearts.7 Comments
This group is really amazing. Their songs especially the old ones like "Kahit Kailan" and "Rainbow" are still hits. They're classic! The singer's voice has that unique cool sound that they can perform in the US and can gain popularity.
I love your songs guys...
When luke was still on the band, the band was great.
I love South Border band! I love their R&B style of singing! I love the songs "Rainbow" and "Kahit Kailan" because of its poetic and romantic lyrics.
A true Philippine rock icon! One of the pioneers that started
The rock revolution of the early 90's. They just released a new
Album. They still ROCK!
The Mighty Boars of Rock! My local band. They're one of the greatest! Enough said!
I'm a 53 year old rocker and was blown away by this band. Rock and roll forever. Don't stop making muic. Long live Pinoy rock.
The best Pinoy Rock band out there!3 Comments
FrancisM was the most versatile on the microphone, he could croon, rap and mosh.
His songs/works will be soon sung by the next generations!
FrancisM is the pioneer of Rap Rock/Metal in the land.
He's the ONE (period)2 Comments
One of the best bands I can remember back in college...
Hey, they should be one of the top 10 rock bands. They made a lot of songs that are really popular. Also, they way they deliver songs is impressive.
Awesome band, love their songs
I love Moonstar 88 since my high school days!
I really love their song "Migraine" which became the theme song of the Korean Drama "Witch Yoo Hee" in GMA here in the Philippines.
One of the top band of the early 20th century. Spearheaded band popularity during the said time
Champ's voice is heart-melting as well as the band's passion to play.
first of all, fearless triggering their unique blend of rock without knowing that it will be the lightning to the stage... their songz are original and catches your melting point even underground and metalz appreciated one of their songz.. and that's the fact!
Signature band back in 2006. For me this is the Filipino rock band15 Comments
They had a reunion concert. A lot of people went. How can they not be one of the best?
Astig pa rin to
No other band from today sound like them, well, probably they only knew is Laklak and Prinsesa or the Prinsesa they know is from 6cycle :-).
How did it come that sandwich did not make it on top ten? This guys are hit makers too!
Sandwich? At 47? What the heck?
Woah. It's supposed to be on top ten.
Love the first album!5 Comments
This band should be in the top 10, they have good music and I really like how they performed on stage. Their albums are all excellent especially the Noontime Show was released way back in 2005.
The best itong banda na ito
Eto lang and gusto ko sa buhay! Their noontime show album is the best!
Since 1995 I was listening to this guys, damn, HAPPY BIRTHDAY SA IYO! LA 105.9 days, my man!1 Comment
Ginoong Vitalis is Awesome as hell, Singing/Playing with a heart and with their soul.. I love them like I love myself.. And I will love them forever and ever. They inspired me when it comes to OPM music they are the reason why I'm attached to OPM today I'm seriously telling you guys the truth.. Seriously, they're perfectly awesome SWEAR!
More Power Guys and I love you! You know that =))) *Hugs* - nadethalmeidaolaran
This band is awesome! They make Good Vibes music and distinct sound here in the Philippines now a days. Their sounds and way of making music is futuristic and make me crazy.
Pilit is the best song on earth and please do check out their other song of ginoong Vitalis like Recall, Dreams, ngayong gabi, paano. Support opm.
Super nice sila... Full of surprises.. Try their song Ngayong Gabi... Super astig... GudVibes... Apir!4 Comments
They're are still the best!
Their hits are too good
Better than Eraserheads!
They're back!2 Comments
One of the best OPM bands PERIOD.
This band is so unique in so many ways. Rock and roll!
FRESH AND SO EXCITING OUT OF THE BOX IDEAS AND OUT OF THIS WORLD IMAGINATION
Mahal k sila haha
Underrated. Probably because they went underground. But surely one of the best band youll ever see and hear. And yes I can't wait for their album. The new songs they posted, wow!
Hope they get the recognition they deserve. The PIRANHA BOYS were always my wife's fave and she introduced me to their music. Wondering why would she like an underground band or even know one? But they are really so ASTIG! She calls them her PIRANHA BOYS! found out that's how they are really called by their close friends. Cheers boys! More power!
Less talk-more music kind of band. And that's how it should be! More power piranha!
One of the best!17 Comments
Typecast is underrated
They have boston drama which shocks you with the guitar work and the lyrics hit hard in that song alone
Better than chicosci. The Lyrics are pretty good. They deserve more recognition
Tyoecast is the most influencial OPM band, for me yes. when it comes to emo and hardrock, Typecast is the one. I'm stillsupporting Typecast I really love them and Their Music
Typecast will always be known with their heartbreaking and "super feels" hits. They proved with How Your Influence Betrays You and their recent EP, Word Sits Heavy that they are getting better at what they are doing and that is to rock out hard and influence many musicians.8 Comments
You guys rock. You are Metallica of the Philippines. Old school rock and roll. One of the best of our time. You would appreciate almost all of their songs in all of their album.
They are one of the coolest band I've seen.. They are so natural and they really rock! They deserve to be at least on the top 20..
I love the song "Superhero" because of its poetic lyrics and beautiful message. I also love its melody!
SUPERHERO Is one of the coolest song they made
A five piece rock band born on April of 2003 comprised of Kat-vox, Kurt-bass, Gerard-guitars, Monx-guitars, and Paulo-drums. In early 2005, the band released its debut self-titled album. Upon the release Saydie has developed a huge following. Their own. Rock n' roll enthusiasts all around the Philippines: from heavy metal kids to punk rock kids to emo kids to doll freaks and blood sucking vamps, are all brought together by their music.
Their music is a monochrome of sound and art that fail the criteria of mediocrity since their music remains nonpareil. "We've chosen not to button down this art that we make and share to others simply because what ever it is that you hear is what you get. For Saydie? Music is an outlet of reality and the different delusions and emotions of life, therefore it should be free and abstract. "
If you really don't know them, you can say it is an international band because of its unique, playful and complicated riffs, and also the way the vocalist use her talent at growling/screaming... It is really unbelievable
Cool! Their music is a monochrome of sound and art that fail the criteria of mediocrity since their music remains nonpareil.
I remembered the time the our band covering all Saydie's song!2 Comments
Oktaves? Once again I choose this band, for they are really creative in songs, I love them really.
The Oktaves had Ely buendia on their band.
The people involved in creating the music for this band are some of the better representations of how the music scene can (and will) continue to grow in the Philippines.
This is the band which really puts its heart to their song! It never forgets to pinch the heart of the listener!
I think this band deserves a higher spot.Everyone can get along with their songs and rocks! At the same time..
This band has done a marvelous job on their art! They have a rare kind of sound that makes me experience LSS without being annoyed and without being in a bad mood (Wily and Lito, please stop it! ). You always want to hear these kind of bands, it brings the "pump" in the PUMPED UP!6 Comments
Undoubtedly one of the best bands ever. And I'm quite sure you've paid a lot of attention whenever you hear the lyrics to their song which hits directly on target. As in "sapul" talaga. Talented bunch indeed.
Mariposa and Burn out, YEAH! My favorites!
Hay buhay nga naman. !
The inspiring anthemic "Makita Kang Muli" always make one proud to be Filipino.5 Comments
I've been looking for music from this band for 5 years now, THANKS WHOEVER POSTED THIS
ASTIG! Filipino Metal Rules!
My Favorite Metalcore Band <3
I can't believe the Youth is almost at the bottom @ 50. There are some on top of this list not worthy of their place. Let's go Taken by Cars, Techy Romantics, Bonehead, Mutiny, Feet Like Fins, Sarcoma...
I think this band is on top the list the songs are very true
The Trio still rocks!
When start the music called PINOY BATO... This band the youth is the one of a favorite band on that time until now... DODONG CRUZ. Is the best...5 Comments
New sound, new techniques, great drum lines, best of all - done by a trio, FIRST ALBUM rocks! TALA!
I love RIA BAUTISTA :)))
The lyrics and Musicality is so GREAT!
Take System of a Down for this!
Idol hari kanang metal
The real "Hari ng Metal"2 Comments
This band should be at least at 20th, not this 50th spot.
How it happen that this band is in 47th place?
How come Shamrock is on 53rd spot? I really love the song "Alipin" and "Hold On." The song Alipin has a very poetic and romantic lyrics.
Underground music did them
Great band is born
Pinoy power metal!
True Faith is legit for its walls in this industry, probably one of the longest standing bands in the country...
they're filipino but they play music as if they're foreign
i could say that they could beat mcr if only they have the same popularity
Fans love them so much. Always get to in the crowd very energetic. Aspiring songs though it is rock. Genius music and lyrics they are deserve to be on top. Whether you like it or not.
Coolest band ever!
They sing their songs as if they were national anthems,
A band full of energy and is criticized a lot
Nevertheless they are bad that reaches out to their fans having parties or gatherings chicosci rocks!
can never be good as MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE (sorry brothers.. ) but they're still vampires nonetheless, so my vote is here.18 Comments
