The intersection of rock’n’roll, sports, and film is very much a part of the LÁ experience.
As Los Ángeles is home to Hollywood, it is only logical that plenty of Rock Angelino tracks have made it to the big screen. Here are the credits and movie poster for Atomic Blue/Azul Atómico: Mexican Wrestler.
This was a self-described “cheesy” Mexican Wresting comedy released in 1998. It is really “cheesy” AF. The movie directed by Richard Salazar featured cameos by Culture Clash and El Vez. Además, the Azul Atómico soundtrack included tracks by Los Straightjackets, Los Mocosos from San José, Los Olvidados, Ley de Hielo, Yeska, La Diabla, El Vez, Solaz, and Orixa from SF.
Plus, ¡Viva Malpache! was also commissioned to write the film song, which you hear over the credits. You can stream the whole movie for free on YouTube or DM for the link.
