Their songs are a parody of songs sung at the time of the period after 1974 Carnation Revolution, and the characters played are caricatures of the revolutionary singers at the time, like Zeca Afonso and José Mário Branco.

Homens da Luta (The Men of the Struggle) were a Portuguese improvisational comedy and musical street show, created in 2006 and fronted by brothers Vasco Duarte (Falâncio) and Nuno Duarte "Jel" (Neto). Their songs are a parody of songs sung at the time of the period after 1974 Carnation Revolution, and the characters played are caricatures of the revolutionary singers at the time, like Zeca Afonso and José Mário Branco. They often use the term "struggle" to invoque the slogans that became famous during the revolutionary era, slogans such as "A Luta Continua" (The Struggle Goes On). In 2010 Homens da Luta edited an album called "A Canção é uma arma" (The song is a weapon) consisting of 14 themes.

One of their most popular songs is "E o povo, pá?" (What about the people, man?). In 2010, Homens da Luta took part in the RTP Song Festival 2010, integrating the list for the online voting, with the song "Luta assim não dá" (The struggle can't go on like this). Nonetheless their song was disqualified due to not following the rules of the Festival, nor the international ESC. In 2011, they ran for the contest again with the song "A luta é alegria" (The struggle is joy), with lyrics by Nuno Duarte "Jel" and composed by Vasco Duarte. They were in sixth place until the public vote was counted, at which point they ended up on the first place, winning a place in Düsseldorf. They represented Portugal in the Eurovision Song Contest 2011 in Düsseldorf, Germany.

The group disbanded in August 2013. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
