We haven't kept up with this story as it developed so here's a quick update: Last February, three members of the Russian punk band Pussy Riot entered Moscow's Christ the Saviour Cathedral and performed a "punk prayer" at the altar, blasting Vladimir Putin's re-election and accusing Russian church leaders of holding Putin more sacred than God. The performance lasted less than a minute and they left when authorities asked, causing no property damage to the church.

After a trial that earned them support from feminist activists and musicians internationally, including Madonna and Björk, the band members were charged with "hooliganism motivated by religious hatred" and sentenced to two years in prison. Their sentence might include time in a labor camp, where the threat of sexual abuse is pervasive.

Shortly after their sentencing, Pussy Riot released a new music video for their song "Putin Lights Up Fires, featuring footage from their cathedral performance and subsequent trial.

I'd probably go and find their old safety pins from when I changed their diapers and offer it to them in case they want to pierce their nose. PRIDE.

An Air Canada commercial flight was delayed on the runway for 20 minutes, so gypsy punk band Lemon Bucket Orkestra did what any band with time to kill and instruments on hand would do: play an impromptu four-song set. No word on whether they were rewarded with an extra bag of complimentary peanuts.

I can't tell if that's a condescending smirk or a pained grimace. Either way, this is totally how Green Day and Blink 182 will be remembered: not as the bands who turned punk into pop, but who were punk. Sorry, 1977!

Not sure if trolling or trying to keep the gullible away from the punk scene. Maybe it's both.
