  1. Why Viva La Cucaracha?

    Feb 10

    I Google Cucaracha and I got...
    "'La Cucaracha' ('The Cockroach') is a traditional Spanish folk corrido, that became popular in Mexico during the Mexican Revolution." - wikipedia... so I'm guessing the Cockroach reference.

    i've translated that a few times on a few different sites and generally they all say "Live the Cockroach"

    i don't know where people get love from. i always thought love was amore. but idk maybe it translates differently in Spanish or maybe that's just how the guys themselves use it.

    But if you go on any internet translation website that is what they will probably tell you. Sure there is a possibility that it is just the site i use but i used to use it all the time in school so i don't think it is too off..
