Rock and Roll was accepted on a massive scale thanks to them. Their concerts gathered hundreds of thousands of fans from Belgrade to Moscow, their albums was released in the millions of copies, their bend members were the first to scandalize region with stories of drugs and decadence…An epic story of sex, drugs, rock and roll and of course, the politics of the last 15 years of Yugoslavia.
