Manic Hispanic is an American Chicano punk rock band from Orange County and Los Angeles, California, United States. They are a comedy act that plays cover versions of punk rock “standards” by slightly renaming songs and adjusting lyrics with humorous references to Chicano culture. The band’s members are all Mexican and use stage names further marking the Mexican/Chicano image of the band. Manic Hispanic is a supergroup made up of former and/or current members of The Adolescents, The Grabbers, Punk Rock Karaoke, The X-Members, 22 JacksFinal ConflictAgent OrangeDeath by Stereo and The Cadillac Tramps.

Their first album was released in 1995. Entitled The Menudo Incident, a reference to Guns N’ Roses’ The Spaghetti Incident, it featured cover versions of songs by The BuzzcocksThe DamnedXBlack FlagWireThe Clash, and others. These cover versions featured rewritten lyrics humorously reflecting the Chicano identity of the band and Chicano/Mexican culture as a whole. Tracks commonly include lyrics sung in Spanish, English, and Chicano “slang” a.k.a. Caló. Examples include songs such as The Damned’s “New Rose” retitled “New Rosa”, and Eddie and the Subtitles‘ “American Society” retitled “Mexican Society.” The Menudo Incident also contains a version of Tejano/country musician Freddy Fender‘s “Before the Next Teardrop Falls”, a bilingual hit when released by Fender in the 1970s. The cover art mimicked the Guns N’ Roses release, showing a bowl of menudo, the traditional Mexican tripe specialty.
