    Слот is also a good Russian hard rock band.


    I usually listen to rap, like Влади, Каста, Баста, Гуф.

    And some rock/pop stuff, like ДДТ, Наутилус помпилиуc and Агата Кристи.


    ST1M aka Billy Milligan(Билли Миллиган), Тони Раут, Гарри Топор, Oxxxymiron, Гамора.


    Most are pop-like, I didn't like them


    Hip-hop bands: Bad Balance, Михей, Noize MC

      Didn't hear about that one, thanks! Gonna add it


      Thanks a lot! I only know the band Russkaja (Example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t6AYJdCGJHk) who partially sing in Russian (Actually most of the band members come from Austria).

      They describe themselves as "Russian Turbo Polka Metal". I would say they are more of a Ska/Folk band. But it might nevertheless be interesting for metal lovers. :-)

      Легион - melodic heavy metal

      Isn't Аквариум a pretty famous rock band?


      Yes, it is one of the most famous ones. But personally I don't like it very much (except few songs like this one: Этот поезд в огне)

      "Машина времени" is also famous aтd I like it more: Синяя птица


      Thanks, I don't actually like rock myself. That was just a name I remembered seeing a lot.


      For those who like black metal, definitely listen to Old Wainds, they have great all-Russian lyrics: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5YTyPhVEdLs

      Pseudogod are also very good but I don't believe they incorporate their native Russian in their songs at all: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Su0buCsrE9A


      Russkaja speaks English but sounds Russian. I like them.


      Спасибо! :D


      A Trip into Elysium is actually one of my favourites :). But it does not have any Russian.


      This is one of the best Duolingo posts I have ever seen. Thank you. Or, спасибо.


      thank you for this (make a german one too pls)

        Алконост is great too.


        Go with Сварга, even the growled parts are rather easy to understand in my opinion.
