No norteño act is more renowned than Los Tigres del Norte, a group of Mexican-American brothers who began their recording career in the early '70s and enjoyed widespread acclaim over the following decades. During the early '70s, Los Tigres became the first act signed to Fama Records and adopted an electric style, trading in their traditional acoustic sound for one incorporating bass, drums, and electric guitar. The group also adopted a modern approach to songwriting, emphasizing contemporary social themes common to Mexican-Americans. In the 1980s, the group regularly topped the regional Mexican album chart stateside. By the early 2000s, they had begun touring globally. ~ Jason Birchmeier
