It depends how advanced your Russian is.I used to learn Russian at school many years ago and forgot a lot since then. Now, I decided to reactivate it and listening to Russian songs on my mp3 on the way to and from work is an excellent way-the language keeps coming back. Obviously it requires some effort, checking the lyrics and looking up some words in the dictionary,but the repetitive element works wonders.And it's so enjoyable! I listen to Vysocky(but his lyrics can be difficult) and a bit of Bichevska , Bielaya Gvardia(they are very clear and easy to understand) and I'm most grateful to Olga, who recommended BG (great!) and Zemfira.I also listen to Splin but as somebody said you can't expect their lyrics to make sense(I have no idea why?)-but the music is very good. I suppose it all depends on your taste for music-mine may seem old-fashioned to you!

Don't listen the pop music. In fact we have so much modern bands and singers with the stupid texts which comprise the mass of mistakes, not only grammar but also in the sentences. I think you should try listen a music in the cover versions when the singers use a slow rate, you will understand it better.

It depends on what kind of music you prefer. I can recommend a couple of Russian rock bands that you can listen to: Агата Кристи, Сплин, Би-2. Check them out.
