The United States Congress decided to include in its archives the reggaeton hit “La Gasolina” by Daddy Yankee as a historical memory.

According to the Library of Congress, adding this song brings the number of titles on the registry to 625.

In addition, 24 songs were included from Daddy Yankee’s hit, including John Lennon’s “Imagine” (1971), Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven” (1971), Madonna’s “Like a Virgin” (1984), the theme of “Super Mario Bros” (1985) and Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas is You” (1994).

Gasolina was part of the third album that the Puerto Rican released and he titled it “Barrio Fino” in 2004.
