The band was formed in 1996 by Jonaz Gonzalez and Alejandro Rosso. They met in Monterrey while playing Super Nintendo.
Their previous musical experiences were very opposite: González came from a thrash-metal band called Koervoz de Malta, and Rosso from an avant-garde group called Acarnienses. Jonas liked Sepultura, Soda Stereo, and Mano Negra; whereas Rosso liked Antonio Carlos Jobim, John Coltrane and lots of classical music.
Jonás is the lead singer and guitar player. Alejandro Rosso is more involved with the creative process, providing most of the instrumentation and occasional background vocals.
As of 2005 they have released three studio records. The band has achieved, since the release of their 1997 single-debut ‘Niño Bomba’, both critical and commercial success. The group often mixes several music styles like rap, dance and rock while often switching between English, Spanish and several other languages in the same song.
They received nominations for Best New Artist in many local awards, and then, the American MTV played their video, making them one of the first rock en español bands video to make a crossover.
