    Most Popular Russian Rock Bands?

    I'm wondering what the most popular rock bands are in Russia (Russian rock bands).

    Can some of you give your opinions? спасибо!

    Below, music tagged Rock and Russian, released 2012 and 2013 on the top music sharing site. Column with number to the left indicates how many are sharing...

    Classic Russian rock is Kino, Nautilus and Akvarium from 80s-90s.
    Zemfira is a popular and really good female rock singer.
    Don't forget groups from Ukraine and Belarus - Lyapis Trubetskoy is a good rock group from Belarus.
    That concludes my knowledge about Russian rock, over to the Russians...




    I see you are Norwegian, so please check out Lampada's thread about Vysotskij in this music forum.
    I'll post some videos of Vysotskij songs in Swedish - they are so cool and poetic! Probably ten times better in original language, with Vysotskij himself singing. Anyway, I was really inspired by those. I am not sure, but it wouldn't surprise me if there are Vysotskij covers in Norwegian too.

    На вкус и цвет фломастеры разные. Послушайте, например, “Бахыт-Компот”- “Бухгалтер Иванов”.



    Tastes differ. Check out Бахыт-Компот’s song “Бухгалтер Иванов”.(“Bookkeeper Ivanov”). It’s all about traditional Russian rural life from alien’s perspective. Punk Rock Style. Some other most popular bands are listed in the article:

    Би-2: "Полковнику никто не пишет", 2000

    Большие города,
    Пустые поезда,
    Ни берега, ни дна
    Всё начинать сначала.
    Холодная война
    И время, как вода,
    Он не сошёл с ума,
    Ты ничего не знала...

    Полковнику никто
    Не пишет,
    Полковника никто
    Не ждёт...

    На линии огня
    Пустые города,
    В которых никогда
    Ты раньше не бывала.
    И рвутся поезда
    На тонкие слова,
    Он не сошёл с ума,
    Ты ничего не знала...

    Полковнику никто
    Не пишет,
    Полковника никто
    Не ждёт...

    Полковнику никто
    Не пишет,
    Полковника никто
    Не ждёт...
    Полковнику никто
    Не пишет,
    Полковника никто
    Не ждёт...

    Yeah, it's not just the music, the lyrics are awesome too. Би-2 is a lot like the Arctic Monkeys because they use the words to paint pictures in your head. It's like art with words.

    Well, you shoud understand that "Russian Rock" is more ideological term than musical. You can find there many groups whose sound is very far from what is usually called "Rock" worldwide.

    On the other hand one of the most "rocky" in sound (IMO) and one of the most popular Russian groups is not mentioned above:

    Aria
    Ария - Осколок льда - (2002) - YouTube
    Кипелов-Я Здесь - YouTube
    Ария Штиль пираты карибского моря - YouTube

    "Россия для русских" - это неправильно. Остальные-то чем лучше?

    Thanks, but actually I just typed in Hanna's list but I'm all over Би-2 and another Russian band - if I could remember it. I'll post it when I do. Right now I wanna check out that Ария band!
    Edit. I definitely like Ария!

    Once you figure out what you like, you should be able to find it on the Rutracker torrent site. Good luck!
