Chingon is a Mexican rock band based in Austin, Texas and started by director Robert RodrÃguez to record songs for his 2003 film Once Upon a Time in Mexico. They contributed on Mexico and Mariachis, a compilation album to RodrÃguez' "Mariachi Trilogy", and released their debut album, Mexican Spaghetti Western, in 2004.
Chingon also contributed the song "MalagueÃ±a Salerosa" to Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill Vol. 2 - which RodrÃguez 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.
RodrÃguez plays guitar in the band.
The band's name comes from a Mexican slang term meaning "badass."
