In 2000 , they released "Resistencia + IVA", recorded and produced by album with which they began to increase the number of followers in each of their shows .

In 2003 , "La Unión Verdadera" came out, a response to a world that according to them is divided by hatred and where renowned Argentine musicians such as Pity Álvarez , singer and guitarist of the rock bands Viejas Locas and Intoxicados participate . On the album they include a song called "We are increasingly Yankis", in which they criticize the inclusion of English terms in everyday Argentine language. Due to the constant growth of the band, in 2004 , they decided to compile their first two albums into one single and to relaunch them under the name of "Cuenta pending, Palabras Poderosas", adding a version in Spanish of "Iron Lion Zion ”, the legendary song by Bob Marley .

In 2006 , they published the album "Things that nobody heard", highlighting the song "For cultivating marijuana."

Resistencia Suburbana was a rebellious reggae band that eloquently manifested reality, the struggle, the popular discontent and that threw out the window one of the most common topics of the genre: No problem . Which they themselves transformed into Yes problem . Consequently with this attitude, the members of the gang were united by an ideological coincidence: strong defenders of human rights , unconditionally support the legalization of marijuana . Self-defined as a fighting band with a lot of energy, they became one of the most representative groups and with the greatest projection of the Argentine reggae scene.


The 23 of maypole of 2012 , the voice of the group, Luis Alfa , decided to step to the side for serious differences of opinion with members of the group and also with new ambitions in the future. Together with him, Traska (drums) and Uri Castellucci (keyboard) left the group. Alfa said he is working on a new project, along with three other musicians "of great talent and humility." The name of the new group is "C4" which, in his words, will be the vindication of combative Reggae . [ citation required ]


After the singer's separation, the name of the band became only "Resistencia" or also "Resistencia Reggae". The new line-up includes a large part of RS and the inclusion of Jose Conceiçao in [[drums]. In 2014 , with this lineup, they released the plate «Alma de Hierro». [ 3 ]
