My company had a Cinco de Mayo celebration this morning. What was it, you might wonder? Breakfast tacos in the lunch room! Viva el patrimonio!

Anybody aware of a version of Bikinis y Rock with subtitles?

I don't know if it has been translated to English, but for the tiny percentage of Spanish speaking mefites, La Contracultura en México by José Agustín is a pretty decent chronicle of what was going on in mexico at the time. It goes from Zoot Suits to Punks.

I watched several of this bands when I was a kid, they were old at the time, as old as my dad or older :). I like hearing the stories of the police raiding parties and concerts, and how one would have to go underground to hear songs about kissing a girl.
