Canción Animal (Spanish for Animal Song) is the fifth album released by the Argentine rock band Soda Stereo, released in September 1990 (see 1990 in music). Many of the songs on the album are among the band's most popular, such as one of their biggest hits "De Música Ligera", the last song played in Soda Stereo's last concert in 1997, "Hombre al agua", "Un Millón de Años Luz", "Te para tres" and others. It is considered one of the best and most influential albums in the history of Latin American rock music. For many people, it's regarded as the best album to ever come out of South America.[2] In 2007, the Argentine edition of Rolling Stone ranked it 9 on its list of "The 100 Greatest Albums of National Rock".[3] The album sold 500,000 copies in Argentina alone.[4]
