Will the Wolf Survive?

Los Lobos' David Hidalgo and Louie Perez got the idea for the band's self-defining anthem when they spotted a photo of a wolf running across a frozen lake in National Geographic and realized it was a perfect metaphor for their underdog status. "We just tried to tell a story," Hidalgo explained. Said sax player/co-producer Steve Berlin, "One day in rehearsal, Dave came in and started playing the chords of 'Will the Wolf Survive?' and I thought to myself, 'This song changes everything.' It was the first time we'd created something that was quintessentially us. It was an epiphany moment."
