Secret (Russian: Секрет) was a Soviet Russian rock and roll band founded in 1982 in Leningrad. The band's musical style and image drawn a heavy inspiration from 1950's and 1960's western music, The Beatles in particular. The band's name was inspired by the Beatles song 'Do You Want to Know a Secret?'. Secret called themselves a "Beat Quartet" and were a part of Soviet rock and roll revival of 1980's, along with Bravo.

The original line-up lasted until 1990, when frontman Maxim Leonidov emigrated to Israel. The band continued with different line-ups without great success. Since 1997 the original line-up has occasionally performed together including for anniversary shows in 2003 and 2007.

Many Secret hits of the 1980s still receive a lot of airplay on Russian FM stations.[1]
