The Hives

Eight years into their career, the Hives rose from garage rock stalwarts to one of the trendiest bands of the early 2000s, along with the Strokes and the White Stripes. Mixing arty contrivances such as a strict black-and-white dress code and the guidance of a (possibly imaginary) Svengali named Randy Fitzsimmons with Stooges-inspired rock, the Hives -- Nicholaus Arson, Chris Dangerous, Dr. Matt Destruction, Vigilante Carlstroem, and Howlin' Pelle Almqvist -- formed in 1993 in Fagersta, Sweden, while they were still in their teens. After signing with a subsidiary of the Burning Heart label in 1995, they released their debut EP, Oh Lord! When? How?, the following year. The group switched to Burning Heart for their first full-length, Barely Legal, in 1997; that year they also embarked on their first U.S. tour.

After the release of 1998's A.K.A. I-D-I-O-T EP, changes in the band's management put things on hold for a time. However, the Hives returned in 2000 with their second full-length album, Veni Vidi Vicious, which featured the singles "Hate to Say I Told You So" and "Main Offender." The album, along with tours with the like-minded International Noise Conspiracy and the Hellacopters, generated serious buzz around the group, leading to praise from stars as diverse as Noel Gallagher and Courtney Love, and a deal with Alan McGee's Poptones label in 2001. In the United States, Gearhead Records reissued Barely Legal, A.K.A. I-D-I-O-T, and Hate to Say I Told You So. More touring and the re-release of their singles in the U.K. culminated with the Top Ten debut of Your New Favourite Band, a compilation of songs from their two previous albums and EPs, upon its release in spring 2002. That summer, the Hives returned to the U.S. for another round of live dates before playing the Reading and Leeds festivals, among others. The band spent most of 2003 in the studio and out of the limelight, but they returned with a vengeance in 2004: Your New Favourite Band was reissued in the States by Sire Records; Interscope released the Walk Idiot Walk single and the Hives' third full-length, Tyrannosaurus Hives. Late in 2007, The Black and White Album, which featured production work from the Neptunes, arrived. In 2012, after playing a series of secret shows in Stockholm, the band released their fifth album, Lex Hives, on their own Disque Hives label. ~ Heather Phares, Rovi

Way to diss em Joey p
i saw them live, they were great
Seeing them live is a must
I'm not putting them down
Actually white stripes are more raw and original than the hives which have mid 60's English rock sounds but are nevertheless kewl in their own right
Whooooo hoooooo
They're two diferent styles of music, Charlie. The Hives need that many guys because that's what they do. The two bands aren't really comparable aside from becoming popular around the same time. As much as I love Jack and The White Stripes, some of the their songs would need more than the two of them to be played the way they are in the studio.
They need five guys to sound like they so, yet the White Stripes needed only two, an technically Jack could've recorded himself on the drums and added it in with his guitar playing, an yet the White Stripes are louder and better than these guys. (Opinion)
@zutaragrrl saw them live in ventura amazing show!!!
buildingmoun t a i n s 3 3 1
Like Modest Mouse mixed with The Strokes, = amazing.
Whatever you do, find a way to see them live- it'll be the best show of your life

Try Dear and the Headlights- Run in Front, Daysleeper or The Weeks- Buttons, Sailor Song. Music that needs to be brought to the attention of the mass population for the good of the world. Please pass this wave of truly great unrecognized music onward!!!!

hey jakedad, go back to takin ur dads dick and shut the hell up :D
f**kin gay.
even better live...AMAZI N G ! ! !
We can thank Britain for a majority of our good music since the mid-60s. Hate to say I told you so, Mark, but trendy doesn't equal bad. The Kinks used less chords in ther repertoire, with even more results.
The Hives are law, you are crime.
I actually really liked them before they got huge... found them on a punk sampler. I got annoyed when they got huge. Reminded me of the Rolling Stones... stop strutting and just rock man!
theone_22204
have you ever tried to just feel music? If u do that, instead of listen, you'll figure out what you really like. And you'll forget about what you think you should like.
This band was so brit band aweful, however it was cool for the 5 mins this sound was cool. Im so sick of this one beat brit band crap, get some flavor and put some stank on it. Im just saying with the same 4-5 chords they play all the time anyone can do that, change it up!
tomaokk
the hives are the greatest band alive
hey hives, hey pandora, thank You
toferlewis
