RBD were simultaneously a Mexican pop group and a telenovela ("Rebelde", 2004-2006). In the television series a group of high school students form a pop band, which also happens to be a pop band in real life as well (shades of Miley Cyrus!). They released their first album ("Rebelde") in November 2004 to great success, hitting number two on the Latin Albums charts and spending over two months in the Top 5. In July 2005 the Tour Generación RBD En Vivo CD and DVD were released, documenting one of their sold out live performances in 1995 at the Palacio de los Deportes (seating 23,000 people) in Mexico City. Two medleys of cover songs were performed, with the first medley featuring four songs recorded by pop group Timbiriche. One of these was Baile Del Sapo, a spanish language version of The Time Warp translated by Julissa for her 1976 production of El Show De Terror De Rocky. The song was later covered by Timbiriche, one of whose members was Julissa's son Benny Ibarra, on their 1983 album En Concierto.
