Swedes Rock Out

Jason posted this video from Peter, Bjorn & John, and it got me thinking about Swedish rock I've enjoyed.

Saw these guys on Colbert this week:

I used to be into these guys in college. Not sure what happened to them.

Also, The Cardigans.

And, screw you guys. I like Abba.

(and that outfit the guitarist has on is exactly what Jason wears to court, btw)

Cardigans are one of my fave bands ever. Also, I dig Komeda quite a bit as well. And ABBA--I like Abba!

About the only thing I disagree with is PB&J. Loved their last one. Not a big fan of the new one.

I liked "Writer's Block", but didn't pick up their latest. I may download this single, though.

I'm getting tired of being a sport and buying whole albums to find I only like 1 or 2 songs.

WOW, that ABBA video is hilarious. And captivating. And.. and.... wow. Those outfits are awesome. Except Anni-Frid's jumpsuit.

I love how they're having trouble lip-syncing the English lyrics. Seeing as how this was early in their career, they probably had to memorize the way they sounded just to record the darn song.

To be fair, I don't wear that outfit to court. I wear a suit, but change into that outfit whenever I have to give a closing argument. I find that it really helps to grab the attention of the jury.
