Latino Rock Stars: Who Are They?



If you’ve always wondered what rock and rap would sound like filtered through a Mexican sensibility, then you’ll love Molotov. This Mexico City band has been blending signature riffs for 20 years, and they’re talented enough to do it in both Spanish and English, without losing their edge. And they’re not afraid to sing truth to power, with classics such as “Gimme the Power,” that challenged oppressive government rule and “Frijolero,” a 2003 hit single that features a Mexican and American tossing verbal grenades as they stand at the border separating the two countries. The song won a Latin Grammy, and the group has won four Latin Grammys overall.
