Padaj silo i nepravdo
"Padaj silo i nepravdo" (lit. "fall, (oh) force and injustice") is a Croatian revolutionary song inspired by the Hvar Rebellion. It is based on "Slobodarka", a 1908 song written by Josip Smodlaka. The song first appeared on the island of Hvar in 1922.
The song gained prominence after being featured in the film Battle of Neretva. It was also featured in Pljuni i zapjevaj moja Jugoslavijo, a 1986 studio album by Bijelo Dugme, a prominent Yugoslav rock band.
Padaj silo i nepravdo,
Fall oh force and injustice,
There are other versions in which the name "Matija Ivanić" is replaced with "Vladimir Ilyich", the first name and patronymic of Vladimir Ilyich Lenin ("Matija Ivaniću!" replaced with "Vladimire Iljiču!").
