The Champs - Tequila

Tequila is an alcoholic beverage named after a town in Mexico. It is a key ingredient in Margaritas and is often done as a shot by licking salt, taking the drink, then sucking a lemon wedge.

"Tequila" is a 1958 rock instrumental by the band The Champs. The title of the song constitutes the entire lyrics, and is spoken three times during the song. "Tequila" became a number-one hit on both the pop and R&B charts, at the time of its release and remains popular amongst fans of the golden age of rock and roll, but the band was a one-hit wonder.

This won for Best Rhythm & Blues Performance at the first ever Grammy Awards in 1959.
