Los Alegres de Terán “Carga Blanca (White Cargo)” (1940s)

Label: Discos Falcon

Most loco lyric: "Cruzaron el Rió Grande ya casi al anochecer/Con bastante carga blanca que tenían que vender."

Translation: "They crossed the Rio Grande just as it was getting dark/With plenty of white cargo that they had to sell." 

The first narcocorrido hit, by the defining fathers of norteño music. It tells about a cross-border smuggling trip around 1940, carrying either heroin or cocaine, and is still sung all over Mexico and the United States.
