Ahí Vamos (Spanish for There We Go) is a 2006 studio album by Argentine rock musician Gustavo Cerati. The album was met with both positive reviews by critics and popularity, especially in Argentina, Chile, Colombia and Mexico. The first single released from the album was "Crimen", which received airplay starting in April 2006 and gained huge popularity in Latin America and Spain. The second single, released in September was "La Excepción". The album was certified Platinum in Argentina with only pre-ordered sales, and attained Gold status in Mexico.

On November 2, 2006, the album received the Latin Grammy for Best Rock Solo Vocal Album and " Crimen" won the category for Best Rock Song. The album was also nominated for Album of the Year, but lost to Shakira's Fijación Oral Vol. 1.

The third single released from the album was "Adiós", which played on radio and TV stations in Latin America beginning in February 2007.

In 2008, Cerati released two more singles from the album, "Lago En El Cielo", the fourth song on the album, and "Me Quedo Aquí," the fifth.

Cerati toured Latin America, Spain and the USA to promote the album, and also performed for the very first time in London, playing at The Forum on October 12.

The name "Ahí Vamos" ("There We Go") was a phrase repeated many times during the recording sessions, which came to be a war cry for Cerati during the time.

On August 29, 2007, the album's second single "La Excepción" received two Latin Grammy nominations: Record of the Year and Best Rock Song, winning the later and beating Argentine band La Renga and Uruguayan band Cuarteto de nos, among others.
