This Playlist Will Get You Through Your Election Day Angst

The election is finally here! Whether you’re at the polls waiting to cast your ballot or your sitting at your desk anxiously awaiting the results, listen to these handpicked songs to get  you through your day.

“Somos Mas Americanos,” Los Tigres del Norte ft. Zack de la Rocha.

This song inspired the playlist. Los Tigres del Norte, a comfort to those of us who call America their second home, are joined by Zack de la Rocha, the woke AF Mexican-American poet who gave Rage Against The Machine that fire, in proclaiming that we are more American than those that want us out of here. Also, that this song opens with the baseline from RATM’s “Killing In The Name” so that’s just dope.

“Renegades Of Funk,” Rage Against The Machine

No matter how hard they try they can’t stop us now.

“Young, Latin, and Proud,” Helado Negro

Pretty self-explanatory, TBH.

“My Shot,” Lin-Manuel Miranda

This Latino has been one of the few things keeping us sane this election, so you best believe I’m included “My Shot,” a song about not wasting any opportunity you’re given. Also, this GIF tho.

“This Land Is Your Land,” Woody Guthrie (My Morning Jacket Cover)

True story: My elementary school music teacher taught me this song and told me it was the U.S. national anthem. I still believe this to be the case.

“Latinoamérica,” Calle 13

Speaking of, I feel like this is our anthem.  

“ICE El Hielo,” La Santa Cecilia/ “Clandestino,” Manu Chao

These two go out to our undocumented brothers and sisters who are unable to make their voices heard. Make sure you cast your ballot and speak for them as well.

“Ingrata,” Cafe Tacvba

Because America has been kind of ungrateful. Latinos have always and will forever be a part of this wonderful country; we make it better, and people should be appreciative of that.

“La Vida Es Un Carnaval,” Celia Cruz

But for real, this election cycle has been a f**king carnival.

“Mi Cucu,” Sonora Dinamita

Women voters be like “no te metas con mi cucu” to Trump.

“It’s The End Of The World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine),” R.E.M.

Because OMFG LOL WHAT IF DONALD TRUMP WINS?!?

“FDT,” YG & Nipsey Hussle

Because for real.

Here’s a much longer list, including some of your own recommendations. Got any questions or want to hear the reasoning behind certain songs? Hit me up.

Bolero Meets The Modern Club in Los Rivera Destino’s New Single “Castigo” with Pedro Capó

Puerto Rican band Los Rivera Destino are back with their new single “Castigo” featuring Pedro Capó. The song is the first single from their long awaited album which is due to be released this summer.

Castigo” is the best of both worlds: fusing Bolero and Dembow, creating a fresh take on songs we would listen to at the club.

We had the chance to interview Los Rivera Destino for Latido Music by mitú, and they talked about filming the music video, songs that they would like to see with Bolero covers, working with Bad Bunny again, and more.
