Influenced by British new wave groups the Cure and the Jesus and Mary Chain, Caifanes' self-titled debut album was at the forefront of the early rock en espa¤ol scene. Originally released in 1988, the Mexican trio's brand of dark synth pop mixed with Latin American rhythms produced three hit singles, "La Bestia Humana," a cover of Cuban folksinger Guillermo Rodriguez's "La Negra Tomasa," and "M tenme Porque Me Muero," which was also the name of the album in several countries. ~ Jon O'Brien
