НАИВная версия...

"Rock 'n' Roll Is Dead?" takes its name from Akvarium's classic song, which the seminal Russian band led by Boris Grebenshchikov first recorded in 1983 (the original title had no question mark). As well as covering the Akvarium hit on the new album, NAIVE also added its own song with the same title.
Although Akvarium and its front man Grebenshchikov were fashionable targets for criticism by punk bands during Akvarium's heyday in the 1980s, Khakimov said NAIVE treats Grebenshchikov "with respect."

"We respect him as an artist," he said. "And it was kind of him to let us perform the song ["Rock 'n' Roll Is Dead?] without asking for money or anything -- he's just above that. He's a great man."
