Nashe Radio Top 5: January 2021

Published: February 1, 2021

Nashe Radio plays popular music that isn’t quite “pop.” What’s big in Russian-language rock, rap, punk, R&B, and alternative? Nashe Radio’s all-Russian and eclectic playlist can tell you. Once a month, SRAS provides a snapshot of what’s at the top of their charts, with YouTube videos and links to our Russian music site.

Here’s how the lineup stood on 29 January, 2021:


1. Джин (Gin) – Сплин

2. Заживо (“While Alive”) – Пилот 

3. Я делаю шаг (“I Take a Step”) – The Hatters

4. 2020 – ДДТ


5. Бог проклятых (“God of the Damned”) – Би-2
