"Mi General Augusto Pinochet" (lit: My General Augusto Pinochet) is a Chilean song written as an homage towards Augusto Pinochet Ugarte by the Chilean folklore composer Luis "Checho" González.[1]

History

The composer, Luis González, wrote the song after the end of Pinochet's government. Its diffusion is mainly due to social media, where it reached popularity in the 2010s, being currently one of the most popular songs that represents Pinochetism.

The original version has an introduction narrated by Rafael Martínez Barberi, however, in most online versions, it is omitted.

The musical arrangements were made by Gustavo Alcántara Ramírez.

The song was included in a 90s cassette called Himno en Honor al Capitán General Don Augusto Pinochet Ugarte - Apología y marchas al Ejército de Chile (Hymn in Honor of Captain General Mr Augusto Pinochet Ugarte - Apology and marches to the Chilean Army in english) made by the musical stamp "Dragón" owned by Mr. Luis González from the city of Iquique, Chile.

The cassette included the songs: Himno a Don Augusto Pinochet (Mi General Augusto Pinochet with an introduction), Marcha A Campaña, Marcha Contento Estoy (Soy Soldado Conscripto), Marcha Mensaje a mi Madre & Apología al Soldado (not a march).[2]
