Taken from Wikipedia:


Panteón Rococo is a Mexican ska band from Mexico City. Despite flourishing black markets, they sold thousands of records. While being stars in Mexico, they have been touring Europe the last three years in a row, especially Germany, where their European Label Übersee Records is located.

Musical style and lyrics
Panteón Rococó blends several styles of popular music such as rock, punk, salsa, cumbia, mariachi, reggae, ska, and also mestizo-music into a very energetic, groovy sound. As they are very political people and sympazise with the EZLN in Chiapas, some of their lyrics contain political statements, but many of them are love-songs.

While very popular in Mexico, they are not so known in Europe, hence their contributions and tours there.

I've been busy getting drunk and yelling at endangered species for being pussies. It's a dehydrating job but someone has to do it.

I know them for a year now I think, because they played a concert for free close a train-hour away from my town, but I watched a video and did not like it so much.....furthermore if I wanted to see them I would have sleep one night in the city where they played.......this was too much

This is actually really cool, especially the vocals, but I'm a bit dissapointed because they don't use Brazilian rythm, which is the second coolest rhythm in the world.

EDIT: Or Cuban Rhythm, which IS the coolest thing in the world, which is just Brazilian rhythm backwards.

You did NOT just compare Panteon Rococo to a rock band with a flute.


A flute, Brian. I mean really.

Propaganda does not deceive people; it merely helps them to deceive themselves-Eric Hoffer

Quote by GannonBracewell

CBGB wants to be famous like the others such as Green Day and Offspring. They don't want to be a underground punk band.
