Latin rock is a term to describe a subgenre blending traditional sounds and elements of Latin American and Hispanic Caribbean folk with rock music.[1][2][3][4][5] However, it is widely used in the English-language media to refer any kind of rock music featuring Spanish or Portuguese vocals. This has led to controversy about the scope of the terminology.

Latin rock should not be confused with "rock music from Latin America"[6][7][8][9] or rock en español.[10][11][12] It's also closely related to the Latin alternative scene (which combines Latin elements with alternative rock, pop, electronic music, indie or hip hop among others)[13][14][15][16][17] a term often used to refer the same phenomenon.[18]
