Franz Ferdinand

Franz Ferdinand is een Schotse rockformatie, opgericht in 2002, met as thuisbasis Glasgow. De groep werd enkele keren genomineerd voor de Grammy Awards. Het nummer Love and Destroy, met als refrein "Margarita - Love and Destroy" werd in 2004 uitgebracht als de b-kant van de single Michael en is gebaseerd op de scène waarin Margarita over Moskou vliegt op weg naar de heksensabbat.

Op de website van Franz Ferdinand, wordt uitgelegd wat de song betekent voor Alex Kapranos, frontman van de groep.

"This track, one of Franz Ferdinand's early creations, is based on the novel 'The Master And Margarita' by Michail Boelgakov.

Unlike many novels that explore the conflict between Jesus and Pontius Pilate and quickly become theological essays, Boelgakov introduces the Jesus-Pilate conflict and supporting events within a story set in the modern day Russia, complete with witches, sorcery, Satan's ball, and accurate portraits of somewhat complex, contradictory, and sometimes despicable Russian characters bred under absurd communist notions of utopian society.

A dream was turned into reality for Alex when Franz Ferdinand played the song in Russia in May 2005. Early versions of the song are referred to as Margarita."
