Part 12: Rock Barrial and Nuevo Rock Argentino

During the 1990s many of the most popular bands in Argentina were part of ‘Rock Barrial’. This was a kind of back to basics rock and roll movement (with a big Rolling Stones influence), which is musically rather conservative. Imagine pub rock bands on steroids playing to a stadium full of boozed up lads and you’re half-way there. In fact, it’s also known more pejoratively as ‘Rock Chabón’, which means ‘Dumb Rock’, but also implies that it is for working class hooligans. Perhaps ‘Lad Rock’ is the British equivalent, culturally if not musically.
.
However, at this time there was also a movement known as ‘Nuevo Rock Argentino’ which included bands like Babasónicos who were more eclectic and playful. Babasónicos formed in the early 90s, but this single is from their seventh LP ‘Infame’ (2004). It includes some of the simplest and most repetitive lyrics ever featured on this blog!

¿Y QUÉ? 

¡Oh sí! 
Estoy mirando a tu novia 
¿Y qué? 
No tengo nada que decirte 
Ella me gusta y yo a ella también 
¡Oh sí! 
¿Y qué? 
¿Y qué?
SO WHAT?

Oh yes!
I'm looking at your girlfriend
So what?
I don't have anything to tell you
She likes me and I like her too
Oh yes!
So what?
So what?
