¿Dónde Jugarán las Niñas?

¿Dónde Jugarán las Niñas? is the first studio album by Mexican rock band Molotov, released in 1997 by Surco Records. The album's title, literally "Where Will The Girls Play?", is a pun on Maná's ¿Dónde Jugarán los Niños? and is also intended as a sexual double-entendre underpinned by the risqué cover featuring a young woman's legs seductively displayed in school uniform.
