I would like to know what music styles where typical for the soviet era. I am not looking for communist music like the Red Army Choir. But what type of music was popular in the Soviet Union. With some little research I found bands like Gorky Park, Piknik and Sektor Gaza. But I think these band are more of the post-soviet era.

This page has links to other music related sites (many of them are Russian only though):

A lot of these are extracts from albums which have sections which have kind of a modern, beat feeling.

I highly recommend the links Shigalyov posted. The only thing is that you can't listen directly, you actually have to download the file to hear it (at least, as far I can figure out). But I've picked up on some really amazing music that way. Many lyrics are only in Russian, but if you copy them into Google Translator, you can get a pretty good feel for the songs.
