For Gen Xers who grew up listening to songs like Frankie Goes to Hollywood’s “Two Tribes” and movies like the American-Soviet nuclear war film The Day After” 1980s Cold War pop culture suddenly feels uncomfortably contemporary again.

In his 1985 song “Russians,” Sting asks, “How can I save my little boy from Oppenheimer’s deadly toy?” referring to physicist Robert Oppenheimer, known as the father of the atomic bomb. In an Instagram post last week, Sting performed the song again. In an accompanying post, he said he’d rarely sung “Russians” since it came out because he never thought it would be relevant again.
