Los Crudos is an American hardcore punk band from Chicago, Illinois that existed from 1991 to 1998. Being all Latinos, they paved the way for later Spanish-speaking punk bands in the USA and helped to increase the presence of Latinos in the predominantly white punk subculture.
Los Crudos tended to focus a leftist political criticism towards issues affecting Latin America and the Latino community, such as U.S. imperialism, racism, xenophobia, and economic inequality. They have been described as "one of '90s punk's truly great bands" and "one of the greatest hardcore bands...ever." Paul Kennedy additionally describes them as "very popular in both the 'crusty' and Emo/straight edge scenes in North America."
