Pussy Riot Playlist

Pussy Riot

Pussy Riot has, thankfully, galvanized international support for freedom of expression and artists’ rights.

Each of the three members of the band (Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, Maria Alekhina and Yekaterina Samutsevich) has been sentenced to two years in prison because they “committed hooliganism driven by religious hatred.” (Oh, how times have changed in Russia.)

They were arrested in March after a guerilla performance in the Orthodox Church’s main cathedral, Christ the Savior Cathedral, in Moscow. They sang a “Punk Prayer” asking for the Virgin Mary to save Russia from Putin. Their protest was inspired by the head of the church, Patriarch Krill, who had praised Putin as “God’s miracle” (Oh, how God has changed.)

You’ve read all about them, their verdicts, and their support. Now, take a little time to get to know their music and performances.

You’ll discover the reason why Punk will never go away. Maybe the world needs more Punk!
