Hard bass is a dance music style from St.Petersburg. Some songs are also popular in Germany, for example “Bochka, Bass, Kolbaser”, which should not be missing at any over-the-top teenage party. “KGB”, “Stalin” and “Send Nukes” (all by DJ Blyatman) are currently being viewed a little more critically.

One of the most famous songs of the genre is “Tri Poloski” by Davay. “Tri Poloski” means something like “three stripes”. It’s a love letter to Adidas, the favorite brand of the Russian underclass.

Above all, young people hanging around, so-called gopniki, are associated with the brand with the three stripes. The love for the German manufacturer goes so far that walking down the aisle in sportswear is no longer taboo.

In the future, it will be much more difficult for residents of Russia to get hold of the three stripes of their desire. Because Adidas is withdrawing from Russia due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The partnership with the Russian Football Association has been terminated and the operation of its own shops and online trading will be suspended until further notice.
