Caifanes are a rock band from Mexico City. Formed in 1987, the group achieved international fame during the late 1980s and early 1990s. Their style can be described as a hybrid of British new wave, progressive rock and Latin percussion underscored by deep, somber and Latin American-Mexican Spanish-influenced lyrics. The name “Califances” is said to be derived from the 1940s Mexican pachuco (zoot suiter) slang “cae fine”. Its equivalent in English would be “cool dude”. The word has also been used to describe the proverbial Mexican pachuco, delinquent or outsider.
