During the late 80's and early 90's, bands from the Spanish speaking nations started to get into Ska, Reggae & Punk. Bands like The Clash and The Bad Brains had a big influence on Latin Rock movement yet the bands of that era differed from the Roc En Espanol groups that came before them. No longer were they trying to emulate the music that came out of Europe and America; they started to get their own identity musically and lyrically. The groups weren't afraid to incorporate music they grew up with. Groups like Mano Negra, Todos Tus Muertos, Tijuana No! and Los Fabulosos Cadillacs fused Brazilian, Cuban, Middle Eastern, Jamaican and African influences into their music as well as the music from the countries they originated from. Lyrically, they spoke of oppression, revolution, self-determination and the need for change.
