7. 3 Stars and a Sun by Parokya ni Edgar and Francis M
Francis M is known for his politically-charged rap songs. While he never ventured into politics, the singer-rapper was well known for songs that not just inspired Pinoys to action, but gave us pride in what is our own. Let this serve as a reminder of why you’re voting and what you want to accomplish with your vote.
