2. Los Fabulosos Cadillacs, 'Fabulosos Calavera' (1997)
After starting as a ska group in the Eighties, the Argentinean stars reimagined Latin rock by concocting a working-class stew of salsa, Brazilian batucada, thrash metal and morbid tango, anchored on Afro-Caribbean percussion and a punchy brass section. Not for the faint of heart, Fabulosos Calavera found the Cadillacs ignoring expectations in favor of relentless experimentation and joyful mayhem.
