Metal? Punk?

Yeah, we got metal.

We even got punk-rock. Punk-rock is Soviet invention, by the way.

I can quote some Soviet punk-rock bands, but I suspect word filter will prevent me from making translations.


Here's my translation of punk-rock song from "Citizen Defence":


Roads, dust and mist,
Cold, danger and steppe weeds.
Enemies of dictatorship will get proletarian PIZDETZ,
When bullet fools up, we have bayonets.

Who sees too much, we rip their eyes off,
Who stand in our way, we round them up in front of wall.
By flaming road we go to Communism!
By flaming road we go to Communism!

We all are made of matter substance,
So religion is just evil opium for our people,
And undying soul is just harmful relic.
Let's crucify the Christ again - go atheism!

Our order will be more correct and simple -
We will cover the Earth with heavens of our power!
By flaming road we go to Communism!
By flaming road we go to Communism!

We are not afraid of Alma-Ata and events in Poland,
Because heroic patriots grow in numbers every day.
And for bloody counter-revolutionaries, like Leh Valesa,
We will re-build Buchenwald and Osvenstim.

We will make experiments on those anarchists,
We have steel arguments for everything we do.
By flaming road we go to Communism!
By flaming road we go to Communism!
By flaming road we go to Communism!
By flaming road we go to Communism!
By flaming road we go to Communism!
By flaming road we go to Communism!



Or something like that. Soviet punk-rock is as extreme, as any other punk, you see...



But I actually prefer more classic things: military marches, classic patriotic songs, etc.

Metal,punk,rap and all other kinds of decadent western music have to be banned in future communist society

I must object comrade.

Under Lenin didn't he allow modern and interesting art to flourish in the USSR?

I think this would be a great sign of a communist nation. Punk music is the music of rebels against the system. Bands like The Clash encouraged people to rebel against British Capitalism and the unequal distribution of wealth. I must say, an exploration of music should be encouraged.

(and to those of us who don't like this kind of music, I'm sure we can find places to have a small drink and listen to the classics. ;) )

All of these genres are excellent mediums - especially rap, being an excellent fusion of rhythm and poetry. It will be taken back from the white CEO's and various other weak "artists", whose only incentive to make and distrubute music is material gain, and given back completely to the people, to introduce everyone to the days of old when music had a message and meaning and the words had substance. Everyone in a communist society should be free to indulge in any artistic deed that contributes to their own personal development.

What we don't need in a communist society, however, are authoritarian powerpervs who want to boss people around. Proper analytical thinking should be considered before posting such nonsense again.
