Mamonas Assassinas was a satirical Brazilian pop/rock band. They were a huge hit in 1995 among children, teenagers and even adults - probably due to the crude humor in their lyrics. Their career ended tragically in 2 March 1996, when the plane in which they were crashed into the Cantareira mountain range, near São Paulo, instantly killing all the members of the band, as well as the plane crew.

Mamonas Assassinas members employed a humorous mixture between diverse styles. They often borrowed elements from other music, among which were the main riff of the Portuguese Vira, Northeastern Brazil songs, Mexican music in Pelados em Santos, their most famous song, metal, often using typical heavy riffs and having recorded a satirical song about the subject, Débil Metal. This combination can be easilly checked at their videoclips, where various references to many kinds of culture can be encountered.
