Pussy Riot, "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 and lyrics below. 

Does your vagina have a brand
Let your vagina start a band
If your vagina lands in prison
Then the world is gonna listen

My vagina is tough and dangerous
Shaking at the major labels
Vagina gonna take the stage
Cuz vagina’s got a lot to say

Don’t play stupid
Don’t play dumb
Vagina’s where you’re really from

Don’t play stupid
Don’t play dumb
Vagina’s where you’re really from
(Where you from?)
(Where you from?)

Vagina gonna win the race
Vagina gonna play in space
Vagina gonna top the charts
Vaginas fill your shopping carts

Vaginas in the art museum
And people buying tickets just to see ‘em
Put your p---- on a diet
Then paparazzi gonna start a riot

Don’t play stupid
Don’t play dumb
Vagina’s where you’re really from

Don’t play stupid
Don’t play dumb
Vagina’s where you’re really from
(Where you from?)
(Where you from?)

V.A.G.I.N.A.
We got p---- for days
Back up, p---- don’t play?
First they come and then they stay

You gon’ always gonna find it when you need it
You gone’ always come back and repeat it
Oh, cuz you know where home is
Go down like you know what dome is

Woah now man I’m losin focus
Va jay jay on hocus pocus
Don’t act like you don’t notice
Girls run it like U.S. Open
Throw a fit right now (right now)
Put up a fist right now (right now)
Cuz you the shit right now (right now)
Probably acting like a bitch right now

Don’t play stupid
Don’t play dumb
Vagina’s where you’re really from

Don’t play stupid
Don’t play dumb
Vagina’s where you’re really from
(Where you from?)
(Where you from?)

My p---- my p----
Is sweet just like a cookie
It goes to work
It makes the beats
It’s CEO, no rookie
From senator to bookie
We run this shit, go lookie
You can turn any page, any race, any age
From Russia to the states
We tearing up the place

I rip shit like Sinead O’Connor
I wear my vag as a badge of honor
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

Don’t play stupid
Don’t play dumb
Vagina’s where you’re really from

Don’t play stupid
Don’t play dumb
Vagina’s where you’re really from
(Where you from?)
(Where you from?)
