Entrega Cheap Trick

Cheap Trick has re-recorded their 1978 song "Surrender" with a Mariachi band in celebration of today being Cinco de Mayo -- Spanish for "fifth of May" -- a Mexican civic holiday commemorating the Mexican army's victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5th, 1862.

The recording also promotes the Hornitos Tequila Mariachi Mash Up competition, a contest that challenges musical acts of all types to create their own mariachi-inspired mash up in celebration of the official kick-off to tequila season. The winning entry will receive $10,000 and a feature in Billboard's "Backbeat" section in June. The contest ends May 23rd.
