The sinking of the Russian warship Moskva is being celebrated by Ukrainians as an iconic victory, together with in a brand new track by one of the nation’s hottest rock musicians.
Vadym Krasnooky, the lead singer of Mad Heads, on Saturday debuted an acoustic model of “Cruiser Moskva” at a information convention. He stated he wrote the track after the sinking of the Moskva, the delight of Russia’s Black Sea Fleet, which the Pentagon confirmed Friday was struck by two Ukrainian Neptune missiles.
Mad Heads, which has performed rock, hillbilly and psychobilly music since its founding 25 years in the past, had stopped performing when Russia invaded Ukraine in late February. Mr. Krasnooky appeared solo with an acoustic guitar in Lviv to carry out the brand new track, which incorporates the chorus: “Oh the ship, oh the ship, Moskva burn! Burn! Burn in hell forever.”
“We have to find a way to channel all this hate,” he informed The New York Times.
The track’s lyrics reference an incident from the start of the conflict, when a border guard on a rocky outpost of Ukraine reportedly responded to Russian requires give up with an expletive telling the ship what it might do. A Ukrainian official has claimed the Moskva was the ship concerned in that incident.
“The ship became transformed into a symbol of our enemy,” Mr. Krasnooky stated.
