Russian Ska-punk rockers Leningrad emerged in the late 1990s, lead by frontman Sergey "Shnur" Shnurov. The 14-member group quickly became notorious for their vulgar lyrics and party-boy lifestyle, resulting in many radio stations initially avoiding their music. The radio ban didn't hinder Leningrad's reach though, as the band's popularity continued to rise. They eventually broke through into the mainstream, receiving widespread radio airplay as well as television time. In 2007, the band began to experiment with female backup vocals. They disbanded the following year, reuniting again in 2010, and have since released several songs and music videos. Shnurov announced in 2019 that Leningrad would disband once again at the end of the year.
