Sometime next month, I'm performing in a battle of the bands event, where our theme is communism/Russia. Anyone have any songs that come to mind that most people have heard of?

So far we have Back in the USSR (beatles), and Rasputin (boney m)
The theme for you BotB is communism?

Tom Morello -
Every day on the street I have people coming up me and going, “Dude, I kicked your ass at Guitar Hero!” I’m like, “Yes, it’s a video game. You should get out more.”

Almost any song from this album will do.

This. You can't go wrong with Cherno by KYPCK when it comes to Soviet Russia.

some pretty awesome music there. But we were thinking of more upbeat songs, since we're not playing for the "general public", i.e. a lot of people that think think that all metal just sounds like noise and screaming
You could always do a cover of Emerson Lake & Palmer's reindition of "The Curse Of Baba Yaga" from Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition. That's really intense. An adrenaline rush on the keys.

Play "changes" by Kino (might also be spelled KHNO). They were actually a russian band at the end of the cold war- rumor was thier singer was killed by the soviets for dissent.

Rammstein - Moskau.

Well, not really about Communism but I think it still fits the theme.

Mother Russia-Iron Maiden?

This, although it's about the Tsars, not the Bolsheviks.

Mussolini VS Stalin by Gogol Bordello. It's not exactly about communism but it's close enough, and it's an awesome song.

The band Franz Ferdinand use a lot of symbolism and references to Russia in their music. Their album art is inspired by Russian Avant-Garde imagery.

Do the song at the end of that.

Or Mother Russia by Iron Maiden, it doesn't matter.

EDIT: Or The Czar by Mastodon, that's a fucking good song.

EDIT: And Dominion/Mother Russia by the Sisters of Mercy.
