Legião Urbana (Brazil)

This week featuring Brazil

Legião Urbana

Legião Urbana are said to have been one of the most successful bands in Brazilian music history.  The band formed in 1983 and unfortunately disbanded in 1996 due to the death of lead singer Renato Russo.  The band released eight albums while Renato Russo was alive.  A Tempestade was released in 1996, this album showed in introspection and sadness in the lyrics and Russo died a month later.  Great band with a quality sound.  They made very few music videos, and low quality of the few they did make, Rucco hated to make them.  This band is still one of the top selling bands in Brazil, even though they have been disbanded for so long.

    I used to listen to them, and now, people of 14,15 years still listening to Legião. A classical band for the problems when we still in High school 🙂
