Pop duo Yolanda Be Cool have urged their fans around the world to destroy all copies of their hit track We No Speak Americano.

The band's members Sylvester Martinez and Johnson 'Durango Slim' Peterson insist the song, which topped 16 charts around the world in 2010, cannot be played as the beats are no longer fresh.

Their official Facebook.com page urged fans to immediately destroy all versions of the song and to replace it with a free track titled Before Midnight, which the band insists is "100% compliant with our high quality standards".

They write, "After careful analysis, we have determined our number one hit song has been grossly overplayed and in some extreme cases misused. This is not what Yolanda Be Cool stands for... it was never meant to be like this."
