I deliberately altered the magic lines of Vysotsky from a famous song. Always wanted to hear something like that, where our more. But for some reason, more and more propagandize courageous “overcoming”, when “we are back to back” and “we are so few”.
In general, contemporary Russian art, especially what used to be called stage music, is not at all occupied with the theme of defending the Motherland or introducing the people to the military history. Why? I don’t know, probably, because among them there are few who know its history at least at the level of a school course. It's a shame, however.
But there is a group in the West, and in the style of heavy metal, which quite well itself perfectly propagandizes Soviet military history, and with knowledge of the matter.
Here is the official video, there is not the best video series, but there is a text. What do the descendants of the Vikings and the true Aryans sing about? About Soviet pilots who bombed Germans almost the entire war on small low-speed aircraft. And how they sing: you will rock! By the way, reading the memories of the Germans about the Eastern Front, almost in every one you come across the mention of the night bombers, who "could hang in the air and throw bombs into the dugout pipe."
Sabaton also has another cool song, freely translated as "Tank march. "Yes, yes, the battle of Prokhorovka is mentioned there. The song describes the course of the battle and even the fact that the Soviet troops suffered heavy losses there, but stopped the Germans. That is, everything corresponds to modern historical research. And the German name itself" Citadel "mentioned.
I liked this version of the video, although the Russian translation is controversial there.
But the Swedes did not finish this anneal, there is a song about the storming of Berlin. And Zhukov and Stalin, of course, mentioned.
And each song gives a great answer, why he won the USSR. Question: why there is not a single Russian group that sang something like that?
They are two, we are eight: the alignment before the battle is not theirs
