With No New Music In 5 Years, Cafe Tacvba Makes A Crazy Return With Music Video For ‘Que No’

Mexican rock band Café Tacvba is back with a visually stunning music video for their new song, “Que No,” from their new (and independent) 8th studio album, “Jei Beibi.” The album was released on Cinco De Mayo, just a few months before the 25th anniversary of their self-titled debut album. The video is NSFW, as we found out by having to enter our birthday just to view it on YouTube.

The video starts out dramatically in all white and as the music builds, the colors start to explode. First out of the microphone, then the instruments, and finally out of people themselves. The video is up to interpretation, but appears to deal with the type of love that bites back. The video is multi-layered and can be seen in many different ways.


At the center of the video, is the woman in white, apparently living a life of opulence.

The woman, who drinks milk and eats a cupcake, even vomits pearls at one point in the video.


The woman in the video eventually encounters a version of herself as a lion.

The lion eventually woos her into a false sense of security, right before violently destroying her in a blaze of beautiful color splatter. What a mess.


Although the video could be interpreted as a critique of excess, some have speculated that the all white theme is a nod to cocaine addiction.

“I think it does speak about cocaine” said Twitter user @mfaresendiz.

In an interview out this week from Rolling Stone, which details the groups 27 years of music, the group says that for their upcoming album they had many different influences.

With the song “Que No,” they were inspired by sounds of the ’60s. When they asked lead guitarist Joselo about his guitar influences for the album, he replied:

“We try different things every time there’s an arrangement opportunity with a new song. But I’m not the only one who plays guitar. Actually, it’s the instrument we all play. Ruben will occasionally play it, and Quique played many guitars this time. As Rubén was saying, exploring distinct paths is a way for us to feel alive, or feel like we’re doing something different. “Que No,” our latest single, has Sixties characteristics which we haven’t done before, and “Matando” also has certain elements we hadn’t come across.”

The band also has plans to go on tour, and released US tour dates just this week.

Last Night’s Canelo Vs Chavez Memes Mostly Focused On Canelo’s Next Fight

The highly-anticipated fight between Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. was expected to be a classic Mexican boxing war, with both fighters trading shots to see who deserved bragging rights. Instead, it turned out to be a one-sided affair that showed Chavez Jr.’s size and reach advantage was no match for Alvarez, who controlled the fight from beginning to end.

From round one, Canelo was in charge:

Several times, it looked like Chavez wasn’t sure how to fight back.

As the fight progressed, it became clear that Chavez Jr. was out of his depth.

It also became clear that Chavez Jr. did not have the same fire in his belly that Chavez Sr. did.

Which led to this savage proclamation:

Once the final bell sounded, the result was a foregone conclusion.

Alvarez scored a unanimous decision, winning every round, 120 to 108.

Chavez Jr. probably felt relieved it was over.

During the post-fight interview, Canelo revealed who his next opponent would be. “Golovkin, you are next my friend,” said Canelo. Moments later, Gennady “GGG” Golovkin, made his way to the ring.

GGG and Canelo faced off in the ring and confirmed their fight was a done deal. GGG wished Canelo luck. Canelo replied: “La suerte es para los mediocres.”

Translation: “Luck is for the mediocre.”

Canelo’s trash talk made everyone forget about Chavez Jr.’s poor display.

And everyone became focused on the Canelo-GGG fight.

Canelo’s reply was so vicious…

It had people wiping the tears from their face and the sweat from their brows.

For some, the Canelo-GGG action was enough to make them forget they spent money on a one-sided fight.

After the fight, Golden Boy Promotions CEO Oscar de la Hoya posted a photo of the two fighters, confirming the fight was set for September 16, 2017.
