DDT (or ДДТ in Cyrillic) is a popular Russian rock band founded by its lead singer and the only remaining original member, Yuri Shevchuk (Юрий Шевчук), in Ufa (Bashkir ASSR, RSFSR) in 1980. Named after the pesticide DDT, they are one of the better known and most prolific Russian bands of the late 20th and early 21st centuries.

In May 1998, the band released a new album titled Mir nomer nol' (World number zero) - a concept album which contained influences from industrial music and relied heavily on electronic and computer-generated music. With this program DDT had lost a part of their old fans but found a huge success among the young auditory - a fact which DDT were very pleased by. A new album, Metel' avgusta (Snowstorm of August), contained mostly outtakes from Mir nomer nol as well as songs with more warm and lyrical atmosphere. Since then, the band has won a number of Russian music awards and been awarded humanitarian citations for their creative and charitable work. Shevchuk and his group also regularly travel throughout the C.I.S. and other former Soviet republics to give benefit concerts: in the spring and summer of 2002, 10 out of 11 concerts that the band played were benefits for various social and cultural organizations. The band has transcended Russia, reaching an ever-growing audience in the U.S. and Europe, and for the past 20 years have traveled frequently throughout the world, playing concerts and gaining new fans with their unique sound. Shevchuk's music and lyrics are not only influenced by traditional “western” rock music, but also by the entire scope of Russian folk, classical, and religious music. In many respects, Shevchuk's initial years of struggle as an underground musicians shaped his and, by extension, the band's philosophy toward their art. The question of the music's marketability was never part of the song writing process as there was no “market” in which to compete but only an allegiance to the purity of artistic expression. In 2002 and 2003 DDT released a double album called Yedinochestvo (Singleness). That duologue had even more experimental sound then Mir nomer nol. After the following tour Vadim Kurilev, band's guitarist and bass-guitarist from original Piter line-up, had left a group to begin his solo career. One of Kurilev's last performances as DDT member was released on CD and DVD called Gorod bez okon (A city without windows).
