Common people, we don't have here bears walking along the streets playing balalaika :))

 

Now, speaking seriously.

I doubt that an individual can speak for the majority. :) Simple answer would be - all music that is popular in the world gains popularity here in Russia, too. Rock music is not an exception, especially among young people. But hey, I'm 40 and I like bands like Pearl Jam, for example - but I suspect they're  old, too...hehe... ok, nevermind. :) Of course, tastes differ for people of different ages, education level, their social status... etc. The modern world makes culture exchanges (or expansion for some of them ;) a very easy process. But I tell you even more... My parents were listening to the Beatles, ABBA, Joe Dassin, Mireille Mathieu back then in the USSR times despite the Cold War and so-called 'Iron Curtain' between the western world and our country. :)
