Õ Blésq Blom is the fifth studio album released by Brazilian rock band Titãs. The name of the album means "The first men who walked on the Earth" in the language created by Mauro and Quitéria, two repentistas from the state of Pernambuco.[2] The language is a mixture of Portuguese, English, Italian and Greek. Mauro and Quitéria are married and they met Titãs in a beach in Pernambuco.[3] They also composed and performed the opening and ending tracks for this album.

It was elected by Rolling Stone Brasil as the 74th best Brazilian music album of all time.[4]
