There is something deeply religious is those songs. May be in a substantial part Bolshevism was a new world religion comparable to Christianity, Buddhism and Muslim fault... With some really middle age religious cruelty toward "non-believers" in late 1930th. Like any Theocracy is was doomed. But during its existence some musical masterpieces were created. BTW the "resistance" theme might be re-used in the struggle against neoliberalism and neoliberal globalization (of which renaissance of nationalism in Europe and election of Trump in the USA are two most evident indicator)

Musical symbols of the this long gone epoch

Some pretty poignant critique

Talkov was one of the first who understand what neoliberalism brought Russia...
