Rock en español is the Spanish-language rock music. While the term is used widely in English, it is used in Spanish mainly to distinguish such music from “Anglo rock.” It is a style of rock music that developed in Spain, Latin American countries and Latino communities, along with other genres like Caribbean ska, reggae, and soca. Successful musicians and bands playing in this genre are often noted for being “crossover” artists, as this genre inherently bridges both linguistic and cultural boundaries.

Rock in Spanish began in 1958, when Ritchie Valens, born in California recorded Mexican folk song “La Bamba”, popularizing Spanish-language rock music throughout Latin America. That year, Daniel Flores, another son of Mexican immigrants born in California, often called the “Godfather of Latin Rock”, performed his hit song “Tequila”, introducing this music to the United States.

The first Rock bands in Latin America were created in the late 50s and early 60s. Since 1959, several Mexican groups like Los Teen Tops, Los Blue Caps and Los Locos del Ritmo recorded Spanish versions of rock classics by Elvis, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, and Buddy Holly among others, which gained them popularity in Latin America. Successful covers included La Plaga (Good Golly Miss Molly) and Popotitos (Bony Moronie). In 1960, Argentinian Sandro de América, a rock musician with a very sensual style influenced by Elvis, later developed a style of pop music called Balada romántica Latinoamericana (Latin American romantic ballad).

    CACHITOS DE HIERRO Y CROMO. January 31, 2015 Selección de temas del alocado y genial programa de nuestra televisión patria. La lista da para hacer todo un estudio sociológico o tomarse unas cervecitas. Atentos a las letras de algunas canciones y el cachondeo que se traen. https://playlistspotify.wordpress.com/2015/01/31/cachitos-de-hierro-y-cromo/

    Esta tag es completamente innecesaria. ven acaso a Burzum taggeado como "metall i norsk"? No, lo tienen taggeado con algo que describe su sonido y que permiten que busquemos música parecida. Me van a decir que sinceramente se parecen musicalmente los 8 artistas de aquí arriba?
