Cool New Ukrainian Folk Song by Mad Heads Celebrates The Sinking of The Russian Warship "Moskva"

Go! Where you have been sent to! Go! To the bottom where you belong! Take all your zombies with you! Oh the ship, the ship "Moskva" burn in the hellish fire! Oh the ship, the ship "Moskva" burn in hell forever!

("Moskva" is Russian for "Moscow")


For more information check out the website of the Ukraine Media Center.


"The fact the flagship sank is very symbolic and good sign of where all this Russian military 'machine' and whole regime is going...", Vadym Krasnooky, lead singer of Mad Heads.



"Russian warship, go fuck yourself" (UkrainianРусскій воєнний корабль, іді …!romanizedRusskii voiennyi korabl, idi …!lit.'Russian Warship, go …!')[1] is a set of postage stamps issued by the Ukrainian Postal ServicesUkrposhta. Issued on 12 April 2022, they commemorate an incident during the Russian invasion of Ukraine.[2] On 24 February 2022, the warship Moskva and the patrol boat Vasily Bykov approached Ukraine's Snake Island in the Black Sea. Ukrainian soldiers on the island refused to surrender, responding instead, "Russian warship, go fuck yourself!"[1]

On 8 March, the Ukrainian postal service launched a contest in which artist Boris Groh's design received the most votes.[1][3]

The stamps feature a drawing of a Ukrainian soldier presenting the middle finger to the Russian cruiser Moskva.[4] The overall layout with the ochre land underneath the blue sea mimics the colors of the Flag of Ukraine. The special postmark accompanying the stamp shows the outline of Snake Island. The stamp design is available in both domestic and foreign version. President Zelenskyy had his picture taken with the stamps and commented that Russian warships should only sail in one direction.[5]

The soldier from whom the radio message is said to have come is Roman Hrybov. He and the head of the Ukrainian Post Office, Ihor Smyljanskyj, signed the first special envelopes with the stamps at the Kyiv Main Post Office.[1][6]

Moskva sank on April 14, two days after the stamp was issued.[7]

The sinking of the Russian warship "Moskva" is being celebrated by Ukrainians as an iconic victory, including in a new song by one of the country’s most popular rock musicians.
Vadym Krasnooky, the lead singer of Mad Heads, on Saturday debuted an acoustic version of “Cruiser Moskva” at a news conference. He said he wrote the song after the sinking of the "Moskva", the pride of Russia’s Black Sea Fleet, which the Pentagon confirmed Friday was struck by two Ukrainian Neptune missiles.
Mad Heads, which has played rock, hillbilly and psychobilly music since its founding 25 years ago, had stopped performing when Russia invaded Ukraine in late February. Mr. Krasnooky appeared solo with an acoustic guitar in Lviv to perform the new song, which includes the refrain: “Oh the ship, oh the ship, "Moskva" burn! Burn! Burn in hell forever.”

Wet Leg. Wet Leg. Well, the big question was whether the artists who performed the novelty viral hit "Chaise Longue" were going to be able to produce an album worth of songs or just be one-hit wonders? Would all the songs be novelty songs? Or a dozen weak copies of "Chaise Longue"? The good news is it's not all carbon-copy novelty songs and features quite a bit of variety, which bodes well for their future.
