"Los Planetas" (''The Planets'') is a Spanish pop-rock group from the city of Granada which started out in the second of half of the 1990s and continue now through the 2000s. The group's first hit was "Qué puedo hacer?" (''What can I do?'') from their album "Super 8", although they had previously had some success with various demos on a competition run by Spanish national public radio station "Radio 3".
After "Super 8" the group produced albums which caught on quickly in the Spanish indie scene, including "Una semana en el motor de un autobús" (''A week in the engine of a bus''), "Pop", "Unidad de Desplazamiento" (''Movement unit''), "Encuentro con entitades" (''Meeting with entities''), "Los Planetas contra la ley la gravedad" (''Los Planetas against the law of gravity'') and a Greatest Hits album, "Canciones para una orquesta química" (''Songs for a chemical orchestra'')
Los Planetas are strongly influenced by English-language rock bands such as early-period Mercury Rev and are considered to be a key reference point in the world of Spanish indie.
