Rock in Soviet Russia

Pretty much the only music I listen to is classic rock. I find that my mind is way too disorganized to keep track of the ever changing and mutating scene of contemporary rock, so I just stick to the classics. It's what I grew up with, there's a ton a variety, and any break ups happened decades ago.

I became curious about the music scene in Soviet Russia during the 60's and 70's, and did a quick google search coming across this article about the history of rock in Russia. During the 60's American bands like the Beatles and the Rolling Stones were hugely popular among youth, underground of course. Any Russian rock bands had to stay underground, not being approved of by Soviet government, but they certainly existed.
