Original Music and Songs Inspired by: Rudo y Cursi
by Various Artists
Released: May 2009
Label: Nacional Records
Besides soundtracking one of Mexico's most lucrative movies, Rudo y Cursi may be the first album ever to include three distinct covers of Cheap Trick's "I Want You to Want Me," two of them en espanol -- one by leading man Gael Garcia Bernal with accordions, the electrified other by Quiero Club. Lushes Devendra Banhart and Black Lips make their old Spanish teachers proud alongside Latin alternative notables such as art-songstress Juana Molina, Caifanes crooner Saul Hernandez, cute-rapping Nina Dioz, post-grrrl sextet Kumbia Queers, the tuba-tronic Nortec Collective, y mucho mas.
