Yea the punk is awesome. Latin America is on the richest place in the earth when it comes to the variaty of music. That is at least one of the things we can be proud about.
This might be interesting to all tvtropes who are not acquainted with spanish punk:

I will always cherish the chance of a new beggining.
I think the Spanish guitar may be the greatest conventional instrument... ever.
I don't usually get into foreign music, though. It just sounds sort of silly if you're not fluent, even with translated lyrics in front of you.
I'm generally really bad at foreign languages. I don't know why.
English is surprisingly easy for me to grasp, and I have a well-rounded understanding of it past the usual person's ability given only a basic education and cultural conditioning. At the same time, pretty much any other language and I'm shit at it.
Hey, I made it to halfway through Spanish 3 in high school. Maybe one day I'll take a trip to Spain or something and stay until they brain me enough with the language that it stays in my head.
I picked up Spanish from my family, who are both immigrants, and polished it a lot in High School.
I always like to tell people I read Spanish better than I understand spoken Spanish, better than I speak Spanish, better than I write Spanish. I'm far from stellar in most fields though, something I'd like to change soon. In a city like this, being English/Spanish bilingual is a major, major plus, and I'd like to push my speaking skills beyond conversational.
One thing I don't get about Spanish is the letter "h". According to one of my Spanish teachers, "h" is never pronounced; it's always a silent letter. If that's true, I'm just baffled that Spanish speakers never got rid of such a useless letter at some point.

I'm not a big fan of Castilian. ( I still like it and their accent when they speak English is awesome.)
I generally prefer the Latin American version of Spanish.
The way they say they pronounce the letter s bothers me.
I'd say it goes like this for me. Latin American Spanish > Italian > Castilian >>>>> French
@Raven The letter h used to be pronounced and at one point it was used to separate syllables in a word.

I was wondering why frisbees got bigger as they got closer then it hit me.
Oh my god, me too, I can't roll my R's no matter how I try. I like Spanish alright, and once you get the hang of it it's not that hard, it's just getting into it. For instance I had so much trouble with it in first and second year, but in third year I was pwning it. I also appreciate that spelling in Spanish is significantly easier than it is in English.
And I agree rap is awesome in Spanish. I hate English rap, I like Spanish rap.
