N.R.M. is a prominent rock band from Minsk, Belarus. It was founded in 1994 on the basis of a rock band «Мроя» («Dream/Vision»), and the acronym actually stands for N.R.M. («The Independent Republic of Dream/Vision», «Незалежная рэспубліка Мроя» in Belarusian).
Arguably they are the most popular rock band singing in Belarusian.
Their music style can be characterzied as hard rock, something in between pop rock (such as Bon Jovi or Guns N' Roses) and a bit heavier punk rock (such as Smashing Pumpkins, Green Day or Pearl Jam).
Like several other bands that sing in Belarusian (and expressed their opposing political views), they are unofficially banned from FM station broadcast in Belarus. There is no written order, but FM station managers said they got unofficial "recommendations" from the authorities with the black list.
