About a year after three members of Pussy Riot went to jail for an anti-Putin protest, the famed fem-punk group has released a new anti-Putin video. This one takes place on an oil rig, where the neon-masked women smash things with sledgehammers, compare Putin to an Iranian ayatollah and, of course, play their new song "Like a Red Prison."

The chaotic guitar and screeching singing dominate this video while the band members pour oil over a portrait of Igor Sechin, chairman of state oil giant Rosneft, while shouting “Homophobic reptile – get out of history,” and take over a gas station with a huge Pussy Riot tarp.

A member of the Pussy Riot collective whose stage name is Grelka said of the video, “the main message is that Putin has spread the country’s wealth among his friends,” according to the Associated Press. These women have definitely sent a message, but after last time, we suspect there will be hell to pay for it.

Check out the video above. We wouldn't listen to this song regularly — with all of the screaming in Russian, once is really enough — but we totally support their right to make it and to give a big "F you" to the man.

Rock on, Pussy Riot, rock on.
