Divididos (Meaning "Separated") is an important Argentine rock band.[1][2]

The band was formed in 1988 after the death of Luca Prodan and the consequent dissolution of the band Sumo.[citation needed] Ricardo Mollo (vocals, guitar) and Diego Arnedo (bass guitar) joined drummer Gustavo Collado to form a band named "La División" (The Division), which would be later called "Divididos".[2][3]

The group is dubbed La Aplanadora del Rock (The Leveller of Rock) and is known for mixing rock music with Argentine folk music, and cryptic, hard-to-get lyrics.[2][4] The most successful point on the band's career came with the 1993 record La era de la boludez (The age of idiocy).[2]

Other than founding members Mollo and Arnedo, different drummers have completed the normal trio: Gustavo Collado (1988-1990); Federico Gil Solá (1990-1995); Jorge Araujo (1995-2004); and since 2004, Catriel Ciavarella.[2]

The name of the band is probably taken from Sumo's song Divididos por la felicidad ("Divided by happiness").[citation needed]

The band has recorded a number of covers, such as Voodoo Child by Jimi Hendrix and Light My Fire by The Doors.[5] Covers not committed to CDs include I Want You (She's So Heavy) and Day Tripper by The Beatles.[citation needed] In their shows, Divididos has played songs such as "Rock and Roll" and "Moby Dick" (Led Zeppelin), and "Little Wing" (Jimi Hendrix). The band also covers some Sumo songs, usually in medley format.[citation needed]

In 2005, the band received the Konex Award as best Rock Group of the 1995-2005 decade, distinction shared with Patricio Rey y sus Redonditos de Ricota.[citation needed]
