Yeah, Joe. European punk bands often pick somewhat rude names that sound cool (to them) because they're in English...and they hope it will get them a lot of attention. ;-)

I'm mentioning it mainly because it seems utterly incongruous to me to have a Russian girl band call themselves "Pussy Riot". It's downright ridiculous as far as I'm concerned...but you don't forget it once you've heard it...so it definitely works.
