24. Brujeria - Matando Güeros

I love how the wiki on this band says "it may be tongue in cheek." You think? Let's see. Take a bunch of guys who have played in bands like like Dimmu Borgir, Fear Factory, Faith No More and Morbid Angel, have them sings songs entirely in Spanish about Satanism and murder, put masks and them and let them tell everyone they are drug lords hiding from the FBI. You may be onto something, wiki editor!

While the overall feel of the band and the absolute ridiculousness of their song title (Killing Whites, Shitload of Semen, Satanic Drug Dealers) make you want to laugh, the music is kind of kick ass. Sure, you might feel kind of stupid singing along, especially since the lyrics are all in Spanish and singing something like Te saco las tripas con mis uñas filosas makes you feel really self aware in any language, and is kind of like singing Cannibal Corpse lyrics out loud, which is something you just don't do, but damn, that music kicks my ass.

Favorite song: Seis, Seis, Sies (couldn't find a video or sample, so here's something else, just so you can get a feel of their music)
