London: Pussy Riot rockers Nadya Tolokonnikova and Masha Alyokhina have scored a cameo in the new season of hit Netflix drama 'House Of Cards' as themselves.

The provocative punks cause a scene at a state dinner as Kevin Spacey's US president Frank Underwood hosts Russian leader Viktor Petrov, played by Lars Mikkelsen, reported Daily Telegraph.

The girls tip champagne on the White House table and storm out after President Petrov pokes fun at them over dinner.

The band's new song, 'Don't Cry Genocide', also features over the end credits of the second episode of the drama's season three.

The Pussy Riot stars were jailed in Russia in 2012 after performing their anti-President Putin protest song 'Mother of God, Drive Putin Away' inside Moscow's Cathedral of Christ The Saviour. They spent 16 months behind bars.
