At The Drive-In - Invalid Litter Dept

At The Drive-In - Invalid Litter Dept

The song's lyrics and music video deal with the Juárez murders, a series of rapes and murders in Cd. Juárez of young women who worked in factories called maquiladoras. Cd. Juárez is located just across the U.S.-Mexican border from El Paso, Texas, ATDI's home town. The song explicitly criticizes the federales, or Mexican police, for their lack of response to these cases.

The #1 rock band for me.

Dont listen or like rock that much, but "relationship of command" just kicks ass.
