"Razom nas bahato" (Ukrainian: Разом нас багато) is a hip-hop song by GreenJolly, which became the unofficial anthem of the Ukrainian Orange Revolution in 2004. The literal translation of the song title is "Together we are many, we cannot be defeated".
The song deliberately resembles a title of a famous Chilean song of Quilapayún used by the Unidad Popular, "El pueblo unido jamás será vencido" (The People United Will Never Be Defeated), written by composer Sergio Ortega.
2005 Eurovision Song Contest entry
The song was the Ukrainian entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 2005 in Kyiv,. As a requirement of the song contest rules, forbidding direct political references, lyrics mentioning Yuschenko were removed. The verses were rewritten to include both Ukrainian and English lyrics, while the chorus' sentence "Razom nas bahato" was repeated in eight languages: Ukrainian, English, German, Spanish, Czech, French and Russian.
