Listen Up! Cinco de Mayo Edition
This week, Listen Up!, our music column, focuses on margaritas and songs about getting blind drunk. By Alejandro Salinas

Not to burst someone’s bubble, but Cinco de Mayo is about as authentically Mexican as Taco Bell. (Fine, it is a regional holiday in Mexico, but, who are you kidding?) Consequently, our playlist this week features zero Mexican artists or tunes in Spanish. Instead, what you’ll find below are a series of songs about drinking, drunkenness, and what usually happens after too much drinking—something we should all be familiar with, particularly on Cinco de Mayo.

Check out our playlist, and make sure to browse through our Cinco de Mayo guide, with cocktail recipes, a how-to about guacamole, and more. Also, if you have any song suggestions, leave them in the comments and we’ll add them throughout the day.

Feliz Cinco de Mayo, everyone!  

This playlist is no longer available. Sorry, folks!
