Avenged Sevenfold were planning on recording the song in both English and Spanish, but forgot the English version, because obviously the Spanish version was good enough. The Mexican folk song is the band’s first ever Spanish language release. It’s especially awesome because what has been traditionally a folk song was covered by a hardcore band.

 

Guitarist Synyster Gates on the song, “There have been a few interesting interpretations over the years, including Chingon’s version from the Kill Bill Volume 2 soundtrack. That’s a great example of how a timeless song can be made relevant with a creative modern take. The structure, arrangement and incredible vocal work of their rendition was inspiring.”
