    If you're a hardcore Maná fan, you'll know all the lyrics to this song. But most people just kinda mumble along after the first line. That is until...

    The power of this song is undeniable.

    It will forever linger in your head.

    It's a song that's part of your deep-rooted rockero identity.

    And it's a war cry of love:

    Seriously though, this is a song that never gets old. You can play it a hundred, a thousand, a millions times, and it will NEVER. GET. OLD. It gets people hyped up for life.

    So play this song and be more like this homie:
