Understood but on my travels to Latin America, I'd listen to latin-jazz, calypso and other latin dance music.
The only Latin American rock metal band that I listen to is Sepultura from Brasil.

The K-car was great. Well sort of. It was not all that great of a car when new in terms of reliability, but as it aged it became no more unreliable than other cars from its time period. One could say it was built like a used car.

Growing up in the 70s and 80s, seeing this ALWAYS told me something awesome - usually a Charlie Brown cartoon or Burl Ives-narrated Christmas special - was about to happen:

I invite you to listen to the other great rochk bands.
People tend to think Latin america is only Salsa, Merergnue and all those very Latino sounds, but trust me a lot of the rock, ska, pop in spanish is better than many things in english...personal preference!

Wow... that brings back memories. My mom and dad actually had "ON" TV... anyone else remember that?

By the way, here's a little fun for my fellow children of the 80s:
