Track notes[edit]

Matapalo - Parte Uno[edit]

Instrumental introduction, which ends with a message in Spanish from the movie "Mars Attacks". This part is spoken by the spanish voice actor of Jack Nicholson.
"Buenas tardes conciudadanos americanos! Perdonenme por interruptir sus progamas favoritos, pero debo de hacer una declaracion de la mayor importancia. En mi vida me han pasado muchas cosas importantes, viviendo un momento historico. No solo para mi, sino para toda la humanidad..."
"Good evening fellow American citizens! Please forgive me for interrupting your favorite programs, but I have a very important message for you. In my life many important things have happened to me, and now I’m experiencing a historical moment. Not only for me, but for all mankind..."


This song was covered by Pro-Pain for their album "Run For Cover".

Ohne mich[edit]

The Onkelz always had to justify themselves. The message of this song is that extremism (right-wing or left-wing) cannot be the right way.

Matapalo - Parte Dos[edit]

This instrumental is the continuation of the intro. It begins with a message from Pozo, a friend of the band and ends in instrumental sound. The message is:
"Tu puedes arriesgarlo todo por algo, que incluso no entiendes cuando lo tienes. Algunos piensan que pueden medirte por tus enemigos. Si fuese así, respetados debemos ser"
"You can risk it all for something you don't even understand when you have it. Some think you can be judged from your enemies. If that is so, we should be respected."
