Chingon is a Mexican rock band based in Austin, Texas and started by director Robert Xavier Rodríguez to record songs for his 2003 film Once Upon a Time in Mexico. They contributed on Mexico and Mariachis, a compilation album to Rodríguez' "Mariachi Trilogy", and released their debut album, Mexican Spaghetti Western, in 2004. Chingon also contributed the song "Malagueña Salerosa" to Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill Vol. 2 — which Rodríguez scored — and a live performance by the band was included on the film's DVD release. They also contributed to the soundtrack for his next film, the collaboration with Quentin Tarantino called Grindhouse, doing a cover of the film's opening theme, re-titling it "Cherry's Dance of Death."

Rodríguez plays guitar in the band.
Other members of the band, who play without Robert Rodríguez as the band Del Castillo:
Alex Ruiz - Vocals
Mark del Castillo - Guitar, Vocals
Rick del Castillo - Guitar, Vocals
Albert Besteiro - Bass
Carmelo Torres - Percussion
Mike Zeoli - Drums

The band's name comes from a Mexican slang term, chingón, meaning "badass."
