They released three studio albums: Señales (2002), Tiempo (2003) and Memoria (2004).

Two years later, as the group dissolved, the series was sold to Spain and the success of its music lead to a fourth and fifth album, this time a compilation entitled, El Disco de Rebelde Way (2006) and Erreway en Concierto (2006), and a show in Israel in 2004.
