Mexican rock band that rose to fame in the ’90s blends new wave and prog rock with brooding lyrics

About This Deal


  • Their Origins: Mexico City in the late ’80s
  • Their Impact: their look and sound led to sold-out shows around the country and helped establish Rock En Español as a genre
  • That Look: they took fashion cues from British new-wave bands such as The Cure
  • That Sound: Imagine the prog-rock prowess of King Crimson mixed with the pop sensibilities of the Jesus and Mary Chain and Latin-style percussion—that’s what you can hear on hits such as “Nubes” and “No Dejes Que”
  • Cai Fan: the 40s Mexican Pachuco slang that the band took its name from. It’s generally used to denote a delinquent or outsider.
  • Caifanes Fan: someone with good musical taste
  • Famous Caifanes Fans: Rolling Stones and Peter Gabriel—they opened for the former and played a festival with the latter
  • Where Else You Can Hear Saúl Hernández: the lead singer formed Jaguares, and launched a solid solo career in the early 2000s
