I watched the film 'Once Upon a Time in Mexico' a few months back and loved the soundtrack in particular. So I bought it. Then a little while after that I bought 'Total Overdose' for my PS2. Cracking game, if anyone's interested.

Anyway, enough about me. What I'm asking for, to fuel my new found like of all things Mexican, is music that is either by Mexican bands or has been clearly influenced by the culture in some way. I'm talking hip-hop, rock, punk, whatever.

There were some music credits in the Total Overdose booklet so I'm going to check those bands aout too. I know it might be a fairly obscure subject but any help is appreciated.

Calexico, Los Lobos and Rodrigo y Gabriella are the only ones I can think of at the moment.

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.

ah yeah, Fobia is another good band, I think they're from mexico. They are rock-ish, though have softer songs. haven't heard them in a while so I dont quite remember, worth checking out though.

Also Mana is another good band you can check out.

Hell yes, some of the rockier covers of that song own, especially that one.

My weirdest dream would have to be when I dreamed that I met this chick I really liked and wanted to practice sex, so I practiced on some guy I met at a gas station...that was pretty screwed up.

Thanks for the recommendations. I have heard of a few of those, namely Los Lobos (through The Drips, and I remember the name being around before then, but can't get the music in my head).

Molotov I think are in the Total Overdose soundtrack. As are a band/group called Delinquent Habits. Anyone know them? Will try all those bands when I get chance, thank you.

Tito and Tarantula are amazing bluesy rock as heard in from dusk till dawn and desperado i think.

Los Lobos are incredible as well
Read my post. Not this.

Hmmm... I wonder whether Rammstein's song Te Quiero Puta- lyrics all in Spanish and featuring a mariachi band- counts.
According to BS statistics, 92% of teens have moved on to rap. If you're among the 8% who doesn't consider rap to be real music, donate your brains, as you clearly aren't using them.

^ It's one of those really old songs like 'miserlou' that really no one can claim, but Ritchie did release it first (in the 50s/60s - can't remember), Los Lobos did it in the 80s.
