Moderatto is a Mexican rock band from Mexico city, known for their exaggerated on-stage personae that parody the stereotypical 1980s glam metal lifestyle. Moderatto started as a cover band in the late 1990s.


Moderatto began playing in the late-nineties in Mexico City, They launched their mainstream debut CD, Resurrexión in 2001. This album quickly gained popularity thanks to their first single "Márchate Ya" and later "Isabel". In November 2004 they launched El Detector de Metal, whose first single, a cover of Timbiriche's "Muriendo Lento", featured female pop singer Belinda. The album was certified platinum.[citation needed]

The group released ¡Grrrr! at the end of 2006 with its first single, "Sentimettal", climbed to No. 3 on the Mexican Top 40 in three weeks.[citation needed]
