La Maldita Vecindad y los Hijos del Quinto Patio (English: The Damn Neighbourhood and the Sons of the Fifth Patio, usually called only "La Maldita") are a band formed in Mexico City in 1985. They are pioneers in rock en Español and are one of the most influential rock bands in Mexico.
They first made an impact with "Mojado", "Un poco de sangre", "Cocodrilo", "Pachuco" and "Un Gran Circo," which narrates the problems, adventures, and beauty of a society anxious to improve its economic status. Their wardrobe has incorporated elements of the Pachuco, an archetypical character represented by Tin Tán in the Mexican cinema. Tin Tan is sampled in one of the group's biggest hits, 1991's Pachuco.
