No Te Va Gustar: "Our Life Is Music, That's All We Know"

"We've got a name, but you're not gonna like it."

That's exactly how Uruguay's Latin Grammy-nominated rock band came up with its well-known moniker, No Te Va Gustar, or You're Not Going To Like It.

"It was like a joke between the band," explains drummer Diego Bartaburu. "The band first started [in 1994] with three members around 16 years old. They had a gig and needed to choose a name for themselves.

"Two of the three members came up with a name. I don't know what it was because I wasn't in the band at the time, but it was awful," laughs Bartaburu.

"When the third member asked them about the name, they said, 'You're not gonna like it'."

And thus, NTVG was born.
