Moderatto is a Mexican cover band active since the late-1990s. Moderatto began playing in the mid-nineties in Mexico City, as a parody of the glamorous style of many 1980's bands like Poison and Mötley Crüe or the makeup of Alice Cooper. Originally started as a side project for the members' original bands, they eventually gained popularity among members of the Mexican alternative scene. With their coming to the mainstream in the early 2000s their popularity increases. They launched their mainstream debut CD, Resurrexión in 2001. This album quickly gained popularity thanks to their first single "Márchate Ya" and later "Isabel". In November 2004 they launched El Detector de Metal, whose first single "Muriendo Lento", featuring female pop singer Belinda, gave Moderatto their first taste of mainstream success. Since the release of Detector de Metal, the band gained notoriety among pop music fans. Moderatto emulates the 1984 mock-rockumentary directed by Rob Reiner This Is Spınal Tap and big '80s bands like Mötley Crüe and Poison with their style and clothing. The band is formed by well-known musicians and actually started as an alternative band for many of them. The group released an album at the end of 2006 titled ¡Grrrr!. The first single from ¡Grrrr! is "Sentimettal", which in three weeks climbed to #3 on the Mexican Top 40. Following No Hay Otra Manera, Moderatto released their next single, "Si Mi Delito Es Rockear (Me Declaro Culpable)" (If Rocking Is My Crime )". Most recently, the group released Queremos Rock (We Want Rock). The band is a known target of criticism, specifically from the heavy metal sector. This is mainly due their great amount of pop songs covered from pop artists like Luis Miguel or Cristian Castro and due to their commercial-aimed style and attitude. Current members Former members
