Russian “Turbo Polka” Band Russkaja Release Bonkers Video for “Rock ‘n’ Roll Today”
There are things that, as mature adults, we must simply exist we will go to our graves have never seen: a Beatles reunion. A unicorn. A good All That Remains concert. A giant red hand with an eyeball in it throwing horns as it zips past giant cucumbers in outer space.
But — lo! — what’s this? Thanks to the apparently fucknuts imagination of Russian “turbo polka” band Russkaja and director Juppi Juppsen, we actually do get to see a giant red hand with an eyeball in it throwing horns as it zips through past giant cucumbers in outer space? Holy shit! I thought The Avengers was a childhood dream come to life, but this video, for the band’s song “Rock ‘n’ Roll Today,” has really taken the fantasies of a young Axl Rosenberg to a whole ‘nuther level.
And oddly enough, the beautifully bizarre animation in the video isn’t even its most miraculous quality! No no no: that would be that the song is actually good! Usually, this kind of pagan/folk metal is not my chalice of mead, but even a Grumpy Gus like me can’t deny that “Rock ‘n’ Roll Today” is really catchy and fun. If every Pagan Fest band were this good, I might have gone to more Pagan Fests.
Check out “Rock ‘n’ Roll Today” below! Russakja’s new album, the drolly-titled Peace, Love and Russian Roll, comes out July 31 on Napalm. Pre-order it here.
