Yes, you heard that right. Sleaze-flamenco favourites Gypsy Pistoleros are trying for the converted UK Christmas number one slot this year with their cover of Ricky Martin’s ‘Livin’ La Vida Loca’. Backed by the Guru of XMas Hits Jon Morter (responsible for the Rage Against the X Factor campaign back in 2009) and with the campaign well under way (with a little help from the guys at Hard Rock Hell) it has a real chance of gaining some real steam and a chance of winning it back for the rock crowd for the first time since Rage Against the Machine over a decade ago!
Not only that, but all proceeds from the track go towards the amazing Shelter charity.
The track itself is awesome (if you haven’t listened to it already above); a great new take on a classic original song. We love it and would personally love to see it get as much plays as possible, so stream the hell out of it, buy it and keep on this site to watch it on YouTube over and over! Just imagine how amazing it would be if not just a rock band, but a smaller one part of the NWOCR scene get’s this much mainstream media attention!
The track is up for pre-order now and is fully released on the 17th of December, so what are you waiting for? Get to it!
