Remember that memorable music video in "Breaking Bad," the one with that awesome narcocorrido, "Negro y Azul: The Ballad of Heisenberg"?

It was performed by Los Cuates de Sinaloa and was co-written by Pepe Garza and show creator Vince Gillian and went like this:

"The city's called Duke, the state's called New Mexico, among the gangsters, the gringo's fame is inflated because of the new drug they created. They say the color is blue and the quality is pure, this potent drug's runnin' through the city and no one could stop it if they wanted to. The cartel's runnin' not because they weren't getting respect, talking about some Heisenberg who owns the market now. No one knows the man since they've never seen his face. The cartel's about respect and they ain't forgiving but that homie's dead, he just doesn't know it yet. Heisenberg's fame has got down to Michoacan, from way far away they want to taste that meth. The blue stuff has crossed the border. Now New Mexico's living up to its name, looks just like Mexico in all the drugs it's hiding. Except there's a gringo boss and he's known as Heisenberg, the cartel's running hot because they weren't getting respect, talking about some Heisenberg who owns the market now. No one knows the man since they've never seen his face. The fury of the cartel, ain't no one escaped it yet. But that homie's dead, he just doesn't know it yet."

It will be released Tuesday on iTunes and Amazon.com as part of a 16-song compilation soundtrack of the show's first and second seasons. The album also will feature an exclusive song, "Fallacies," performed by Twaüghthammer and co-written by Gilligan and Sam Catlin.
