1. All of their songs are about killing white people, politics, anti-Christianity and Satan. All of their lyrics. All of them! With metal, consistency is key my friends.
  2. The extreme metal band (I mean that in the best possible sense of the word) featured (or did feature at one time or another) members of Fear Factory, Static X AND the Dead Kennedy’s.
  3. Stage names include the following: Pinche Peach, Fantasma, El Cynico, Cristo De Pisto, El Sadistico and Marijuana Machete.
  4. The first album was largely banned from public sale because the cover art featured a shot of a hand holding up a real decapitated head. According to legend, the head in question was a victim of serial killer Adolpho de Jesus Constanzo. Costanzo’s crimes arguably make Richard Ramirez and Charles Manson seem like rank amateurs by comparison.  A movie about his cult starring Sean Astin came out 3 years ago.
  5. The gimmick: They perform under fake names because they are Mexican drug lords, hiding their identities behind masks because they are wanted by the Fed’s. Their lineup has changed over time and could be different at any point, much like the Residents.
  6. Song titles include the following: The Macarena (cover), El Patron, Demoniaco! and Machetazos!
  7. Album titles include the following: Spanglish 101, Mextremist and The Mexecutioner.

This makes Unsane album covers look practically tasteful by comparison.
