Continuing with my series of posts on Spanish-language rock, here’s something about Molotov.
Molotov is a band originating from Mexico City, that mixes rock with hip hop and English with Spanish, with very strong (sometimes offensive) lyrics and a amusing, deeper message. They have raised a lot of controversy and at the beginning of their carreer were censored from the radio, but became very popular in most of the Spanish-speaking world and some other countries nevertheless (I’ve heard their songs in the U.S., but bought one of their CDs in Russia). The band members are 3 Mexicans and an American.
They are not for the conservative, and even though sometimes I don’t agree with their views either, I quite like their music. You have been warned.
