Listen to Pussy Riot's New Female-Empowerment Anthem "Straight Outta Vagina"

As the title indicates, it's a tad NSFW.

Pussy Riot are back with their most obvious song title to date: "Straight Outta Vagina." The hip-hop-geared pop song, which features Desi Mo and Leikeli47, arrived today (Oct. 24) as part of the Adult Swim Singles Program. According to the press release, both the song and video see the political punks sing about "the power of p----."

While each lyric packs a mouthful of double entendres and quick-witted quips — the chorus repeats, "Don't play stupid, don't play dumb/ Vagina's where you're really from" — the visual accompaniment is equally striking. Directed by Phillip Lopez, the video was shot days ago in Los Angeles and centers on member Nadya Tolokno (Nadezhda Andreyevna Tolokonnikova), though it features a surplus of other compelling characters as well. 

Taken as a whole, "Straight Outta Vagina" delivers the least punk-rock sound from Pussy Riot to date, and errs more mainstream, save for the blunt and overwhelming mentions of the titular sexual organ.

The press release concludes with the tease: "More coming soon..." For now, check out the video below.
