National Day Calendar has designated today as "NATIONAL TEQUILA DAY." "Tequila" is also the title of a #1 million-selling rock and roll instrumental hit from 1958 by the Champs. The song was released on Gene Autry's Challenge Record label, and it was originally the B-side. The intended A-side was called "Train  to Nowhere," and it went nowhere - that is, until DJs flipped the record over, and the rest is history. The song has been used in numerous movie soundtracks including Pee Wee's Big Adventure and it's the most important song in a current film titled Baby Driver.
