Corridos Prohibidos

Corridos Prohibidos by Los Tigres del Norte
Released: Jan 1989
Label: Fonovisa
This 1989 release saw Los Tigres, who had always included a few narco-corridos on each album, devoting a full album to the genre. Drug smugglers reportedly went crazy for the release, while everyone else was scandalized. But to give the music its due: "La Mafia Muere" celebrates and mourns Culiacan's pistolero culture, and "La Caminoneta Gris" became a true classic.
