Degüello is the sixth studio album by American blues-rock band ZZ Top, released in 1979 (see 1979 in music). "Degüello" means The Beheading or "no quarter" (as in "no surrender to be given or accepted--a fight to the death") in Spanish and was the title of a Moorish-origin bugle call used by Mexican forces at the Battle of the Alamo, Texas, in 1836.
