On the show this time, it’s the Rock n Roll Revival of The Hives.

The Hives have been rocking fans across the world since the '90s, when they released their first demo, “Sounds Like Sushi.” Their over-the-top energy and memorable hooks were apparent from the start – as was their wacky sense of humor. Need a punk ode to constipation? Yeah, you got it. They dress up fancy in black and white suits. They play fast, loud, punk rock music. Their live shows are legendary. And ever since they put out the anthem “Hate To Say I Told You So” on their second full length, Veni Vidi Vicious, they did, in fact, take over the world. Their latest is called The Death of Randy Fitzsimmons and it is available on their own imprint, Disques Hives.
