Def Con Dos (meaning DEFense CONdition TWO) is a rap rock band from Madrid, Spain. Greatly influenced by hip hop bands Beastie Boys, Public Enemy, and Run D.M.C., and rock band Siniestro Total, they started rapping over hip hop bases created by producer JuliÃ¡n HernÃ¡ndez (musician and singer of Siniestro Total). In their Segundo Asalto tape (1989), the sound still was basically hip hop, but they started using rock guitars. Texts in their lyrics and in the manifestos enclosed with their records are highly offensive and complex, with many references to pop culture: pop music, Spanish folklore, news, publicity, cinema, literature and Spanish and American comics. Armas pal pueblo (1994) was probably the first album made in Spain with a Spanish version of the Parental advisory: Explicit lyrics label on the cover. Partly due to their polemical texts, DCD did not get much coverage from mainstream media in their beginnings, with the exception of some programs in Radio 3, a station belonging to the government-run RadiotelevisiÃ³n EspaÃ±ola. This situation changed when Basque film maker Ãlex de la Iglesia appointed them for the main themes in his films AcciÃ³n mutante (Mutant Action, 1993) and El dÃa de la bestia (The Day of the Beast, 1995). Ãlex de la Iglesia also directed the videoclips for these songs.
