Secret (Russian: Секрет, lit.: Secret) was a Soviet Russian rock and roll band founded in 1982 in Leningrad. The band's musical style and image were inspired from 1950s and 1960s western music, in particular by The Beatles. 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, along with Bravo, a part of Soviet rock and roll revival of 1980s.
