Ah, the Macarena...a true 90s anthem. This 1994 "one hit wonder" by Los del Rio blasted through the speakers' of the 90s generation, as they did the catchy little dance to go with the equally catchy song.

We're guessing that you've never taken the time listen to all of the actual lyrics...and you should be glad you didn't. As reported by Cosmopolitan Latina, Macarena is the name of a woman, a pretty scandalous woman at that!
