Recommendations for Rock en Espanol

I want to try to hone my Spanish, especially my weakest part (listening comprehension) by listening to some rock en espanol. Anyone have any recommendations? I have liked what I've heard from Aterciopelados.

Hi, how about this one? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X3Duz_z17N4 (it's considered rock in here :v)

this band is kind of metal but maybe you like. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q0S7oWqS7f4





https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=denlZx5pz5M (this was Juanes before he became a piece of shit) he had a nice band here in Medellín.

I hope you find some of them useful for your Spanish learning :)


Gracias, mi amigo. I would love to find the Spanish versions of Tool, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, etc., but that was pretty good, too.


Just found this, sounds cool: https://tunein.com/podcasts/Rock-en-Espaol/La-Lengua-p569662/

"Básicamente rock en español, además de electrónica, folclor y fusiones diversas; géneros y vertientes siempre elaborados por músicos hispanoamericanos de hoy y siempre."


the greatest spanish rock band is, and always will be, BARRICADA. Incredible intro. In the first three minutes you can touch the sky.....or the hell. Great Enrique Villareal "El Drogas".



The best rock in Spanish was made in Argentina during 80's. Try "rock argentino de los ochenta" in a browser.


¡Hola! Te recomiendo muchísimo que escuches música en español, ya te habrás dado cuenta que hace que tu aprendizaje del idioma sea más entretenido y eficaz :)

Dicho esto, I had never heard about Aterciopelados, y en verdad me encantaron. I think I have a good suggestion for you: I am talking about my favourite rock band in Spanish. I really hope you like them. They are called El Canto del Loco. Lamentablemente esta banda ya no existe, pero puedes escuchar las canciones viejas :) They are not from Colombia as the ones you mentioned. They are from Spain (Madrid). I know that the Colombian accent sounds much much much better ;) but the Spanish one has a great advantage: you can more easily differenciate between S and C sounds :)



Recuerda que si escribes en español la letra Ñ es imprescindible. Español por ej.


Maná is a pretty popular band where I live, and they have some pretty good songs like "En el muelle de San Blas" y "Reyando el Sol." Even though you like rock, latin pop or something similar would probably be better for comprehension as the vocals are usually more clear, that's just my observation though.
