Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin (SSLYBY) is an American indie pop band from Springfield, Missouri. Their full-length album Broom, independently released in 2005, received good reviews from Spin Magazine and they are now signed with Polyvinyl Record Co.. The band's name refers to Boris Yeltsin, the first President of Russia (1990-1999).

Spin Magazine praised SSLYBY in an October issue, and recently, SSLYBY released a split record with Michael Holt of San Francisco cult band the Mommyheads on Catbird Records (a label started by the blog site Catbirdseat).

The band has become somewhat of a blog favorite; they have received praise from the aforementioned Catbirdseat, as well as from You Ain't No Picasso and Bars and Guitars.

In February 2006, the band went on tour with Secretly Canadian band Catfish Haven.

The band's next LP, Pershing, will be released April 8th, 2008 on Polyvinyl.
