Corrido is a genre that details the ins and outs of daily life in Mexican society. It touches on political issues, social issues, and everything in between. The genre even serves as a way to illustrate the way Heisenberg became a legend on Breaking Bad. Seeing how Dragon Ball and its sequels have become popular with Mexicans – not only for young people, but also for older people who grew up with the anime series – it was bound to become the subject of a corrido, sooner or later. Now, the time has come.
“El Nuevo Corrido de Dragon Ball Z” has been going viral since late last month. The song chronicles the adventures of Goku’s friends and enemies with a very Mexican way of telling the narrative (read: tons of cursing. Hilarious cursing). The corrido is done banda style, with big instrumentation, and a traditional arrangement and lyrical structure. Unfortunately, we don’t know much about the artists behind the song, but we’re glad they exist. Besides, we already had a “Cumbia De Gokú.” It was high time the series had its own corrido.
There’s not much else to say about the song. Just listen to it. It needs to be heard to be believed.
