Molotov is one of my favorite bands. My favorite Spanish-speaking band for sure.
Oddly, the only times that I’ve been to a Molotov concert were in Germany, during their European tour. But I don’t complain, the concerts were vibrant and full of energy, like their songs. Damn! I was even able to jump with them on the stage and had some words before and after the show.
But anyways. Mexico has been involved in many political disturbances and its social movements are a clear way to observe these several demands from all over Mexico.
What I like from Molotov is that they are totally apolitical, so have more energy to talk crap about everyone in politics.
This is one of their most famous songs, and almost an hymn that has trascended through all Latin America. I truly believe, that many inhabitants from Tijuana to Tierra del Fuego feel very identified with the lyrics.
This is a powerful invitation of Molotov to take the streets and demonstrate against the dirt in Politics: Gimme tha Power.
