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...

...this line:

Yeah! Fuck that guy!

Yeah! Fuck that guy!

And then you get to THE ICONIC CHORUS that everyone, from your tías and uncles, to your cholo cousins, to your college-bound rockero siblings will sing off the top of their lungs:

RIP vocal chords.

RIP vocal chords.

And the whole time this song is playing, everybody's on the dance floor dancing like this:



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.
