The Regional Mexican scene is just as dominant and on fire as the Latin urban scene -- especially with the rise of the Mexillennials.

But before the Christian Nodals and Luis Coronels of today, a group of Mexican artists and groups were making us swoon and croon with their music. In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, Billboard put together the top 20 songs of all time on the Regional Mexican Songs airplay chart. The list includes everyone from '90s sensations such as Los Temerarios and La Mafia to the new wave of artists such as Espinoza Paz and Gerardo Ortiz.

Check out the complete list below.
