* ProtestSong
* ShoutOut: Besides containing many references to Soviet life, his music was based on Music/DuranDuran.

* WordSaladLyrics: Most of Kino's songs' lyrics are fairly meaningful... with the exception of "Aluminium Cucumbers". Tsoi himself said explicitly that its lyrics were meant to create certain ''associations'' without actually making any sense.

His biggest concert was in 1990, when he sang to 62,000 fans in Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium. Sadly, he died in August 1990 in a car crash in Latvia, just as he had finished recording an album. He was remembered as the pioneer of Russian rock music, and a wall on Moscow's Arbat Street is [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/b/b4/Tsoy-wall-arbat.jpg covered with graffiti dedicated to him]]. His fans' motto is "Цой жив!" ("Tsoi lives!").
