La Polla Records is a Spanish punk rock band. They were formed in 1979 in Salvatierra/Agurain, a small town in the Basque Country (Spain).
Its founders were Evaristo Páramos, Maleguin, Txarly and Sume. The name was somewhat controversial because in Spain's Spanish, "polla" is
slang for penis.
La Polla Records were one of the first punk bands to sing in Spanish. They, along with dozens of other bands were part of an underground
movement that existed throughout the 1980s in Spain, particularly in the Basque Country, that came as a reaction to the fall of fascism in
Spain in 1975 with the death of Franco. Consequently, strong feelings of nationalism arose in the early years after Franco's death. The genre of
the music became known as "Rock Radical Vasco" (Basque Radical Rock).
