Pussy Riot's 'Straight Outta Vagina' Wants Trump To Remember Where He Came From

Nasty women, we hope you're singing this all the way to the ballot box.

“Don’t play stupid / don’t play dumb / vagina’s where you’re really from!*” These glorious words comprise the powerful (and dangerously catchy) chorus to Pussy Riot’s new song “Straight Outta Vagina.”

The danceable number, which features Desi Mo and Leikeli47, is the latest from the Russian punk group, whose members spent nearly two years in a Russian prison after criticizing Vladimir Putin in their 2012 performance “Punk Prayer.”

In their newest song, Pussy Riot lodges their message at Putin’s non-best friend Donald Trump, whose history of verbally and physically abusing women is truly sickening.

It’s ironic, Pussy Riot reminds us, that the man who so cavalierly bragged about grabbing women “by the pussy” owes his very existence to it. Although it’s hard to listen to the song without thinking of all that’s at stake in this maddening current political climate, the powerful lyrics are about so much more.

This song could be considered an answer to Trump,” Pussy Riot’s Nadya Tolokonnikova told The Guardian. “But I believe the idea of powerful female sexuality is much bigger than any populist megalomaniac man … Vagina is bigger than Trump.”

Check out the full video below, and keep reading to memorize the lyrics. Nasty women of the world, we hope you’re singing them all the way to the ballot box.

*We don’t know if Trump was born via Caesarean section ― and frankly, he probably doesn’t either ― but we assume Pussy Riot is using “vagina” pretty loosely here.

Does your vagina have a brand?

Let your vagina start a band

If your vagina lands in prison

I take pride in the way we rise

One love to Maya Angelou, the 8th world wonder

How we do it all sometimes I wonder

I could play nice so I can bring that thunder

So sad I gotta end right here

But this vagina gotta go make them numbers

Vagina’s where you’re really from

CORRECTION: An earlier version included the wrong amount of prison time served by Pussy Riot members. Two members of the group were locked up for nearly two years.

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
