Popeda

Popeda

Popeda is a Finnish rock band hailing from Tampere and one of the staples of Manserock. Epe Helenius, who signed the band for Poko Rekords in 1977, called the band "Finnish Rolling Stones". Musically their style is a combination of rhythm'n'blues and boogie, with humorous lyrics by their vocalist Pate Mustajärvi, often concerning girls, cars and drinking.

Popeda was founded in November 1977 by Pauli "Pate" Mustajärvi and Ilari "Ilpo" Ainiala. Popeda's 1983 album "Kaasua" is considered their breakthrough. Pate Mustajärvi is these days the band's only original member.
