P.O.T. was a Filipino rock band, formed in 1994 and officially disbanded in 2005. The band is fronted by Karl Roy who also fronted the bands Advent Call and Kapatid. The group is famous for their 1997 remake of the song "Yugyugan Na", originally performed by The Philippine Advisors in 1977. The band held their reunion concert on July 22, 2006 at the 70s Bistro in Quezon City.

The initials of the band name P.O.T. is a pseudo-acronym, meaning it doesn't stand for anything at all or as what Karl Roy stated in an interview, fans of the band can freely decide in making up any meanings that fit the initials.

On March 13, 2012, Karl Roy reportedly died due to cardiac arrest. Hours after his death, Roy became the top trending topic on Twitter Philippines.[1]
