Los Suaves is a Spanish hard rock band from Ourense, Galicia. The band was founded in the 1980s by the Domínguez brothers: Charly, bassist and Yosi Domínguez, vocalist.

The chance to record their first album, Esta vida me va a matar (This Life is going to kill me), appeared after being the support band of The Ramones in A Coruña, during one of the visits of this punk band to Europe. With this album important songs like "Peligrosa María" or "Viene el tren" were published. After eight years passed going unnoticed they achieved a real success with their third album Ese día piensa en mí (1989). This point marked the beginning of their most successful stage.

The band has received some prizes[which?] from the specialized press as the best live band of the country.
