Hi all,

Did you know that the Russian work for the «sock» is «no sock»?

The Russian word which sounds as "rock" means "fate". Personally I think that fact had a great influence on the Russian rock music

Поэт в России - больше, чем поэт
В России все поэты - рок-артисты

(In Russia a poet is more than a poet
In Russia all poets are rock artists)

Рок-артисты России - rock artists of Russia.
Русские/российские рок-артисты - Russian rock artists

I can't really make recommendations because I don't like rock. I know a few names.

Thanks! I figured the safest bet was to just mimic the endings. XD;

Here is the original:

У лукоморья дуб зелёный;
Златая цепь на дубе том:
И днём и ночью кот учёный
Всё ходит по цепи кругом;
Идёт направо - песнь заводит,
Налево - сказку говорит.
Там чудеса: там леший бродит,
Русалка на ветвях сидит;
Там на неведомых дорожках
Следы невиданных зверей;
Избушка там на курьих ножках
Стоит без окон, без дверей;
...
Там царь Кащей над златом чахнет;
Там русский дух... там Русью пахнет!
И там я был, и мёд я пил;
По усам текло, в рот не попало.

Warning, the video contains some strong language in English

Спасибо, очень смешно :-) I can somewhat understand the original, but I would never have figured out most of it from the English above :-)
