"Chingon" is a Mexican rock band based in Austin, Texas and started by director Robert Rodríguez to record songs for his 2003 film ''Once Upon a Time in Mexico''. They contributed on ''Mexico and Mariachis'', a compilation album to Rodríguez' "Mariachi Trilogy", and released their debut album, ''Mexican Spaghetti Western'', in 2004.
Chingon also contributed the song "Malagueña Salerosa" to Quentin Tarantino's ''Kill Bill Vol. 2'' — which Rodríguez scored — and a live performance by the band was included on the film's DVD release. They will also contribute to the soundtrack for his next film, a collaboration with Tarantino called ''Grind House''.
Rodríguez plays guitar in the band.
The band's name comes from a Mexican slang term meaning "badass."
