Los Cadetes de Linares are famously known for their corridos, ballad-style songs about famous drug cartel criminals or heroes in the rural frontier of the US-Mexico border. They are a conjunto — also known as a norteño group—and their accordion and bajo sexto waltzes are well known in both Mexico and the Southwest. They are known also because of their appearances in classic Mexican films.

The founding members are from Linares, Nuevo Leon, Mexico.

This group was founded in 1960 in the city of El Poblado, Linares (Nuevo León), Nuevo León, Mexico, by Homero Guerrero. The idea of becoming a musical group of Cadetes was because his dream as a little boy was to be at the college military but because of the economic problems he was having with the family he decided to become Cadetes of the music industry. he first began with a guitar singing in family parties, festivals, schools and the local Plaza Kiosco of Linares, Nuevo Leon.

In 1961 they Baptized the Accordion and Bajo Sexto to the musical group thus bringing the first accordionist by the name of Adan Moreno. They once again began playing all around the City of Linares. Because Homero and Adan were from linares, the people from there Officially Baptized them as Los Cadetes de Linares.

In 1967 Adan Moreno Left the Musical Group due to Problems within the group. In 1968 Samuel zapata entered as the Second Accordionist for Los Cadetes de Linares.
