The Juventud Rebelde (English: Rebel Youth) is a Cuban newspaper of the Unión de Jóvenes Comunistas (Union of Young Communists). On October 21, 1965 Fidel Castro described the newspaper as "... a paper devoted mainly to youth, with things of interest to young people, but that must try to be a quality newspaper whose content could be interesting to all kinds of readers." As the newspaper has published articles by journalists demonstrating a stance against reggaetón. The paper claims that "something must be done" about the music style that has become popular among youth, as artists in the genre commonly glorify "luxury, lust, vice" and the use of drugs and alcohol. The vice that the paper sees reggaetón as promoting encompasses everything from violence to dressing in a certain fashion to sexual behavior. Sexual behavior, the newspaper has argued, is promoted by all aspects of the genre, from the "repetitive beats" and "suggestive lyrics" to the "licentious dance moves" , which the paper likens to "'making love with clothes on'"
