Sweden rocks!

My post on Mando Diao the other day made me remember how many good bands are from Sweden. Then, after some quick Wikipedia research, I realized that bands I already love and posted about were from Sweden and I didn’t even know it (I’m From Barcelona, The Sounds, The Radio Dept., Shout Out Louds, The Hives, etc.) . Crazy! I’ve made a mix of my favorite songs from bands from Sweden (and yes, of course ABBA is on there). But they must teach indie rock, punk and new wave in the womb.

And because I was educated in the US school systems, I learned barely anything about other countries unless it had to do with the US colonizing or exploiting it, I really don’t know a lot about Swedish culture. Based on the bands listen to, I am going to assume that all Swedes are incredibly good looking, are hipsters, and like punk music.

  1. Sweden has been a very important force in pop music for the last 10 years. Credit Swedish producer Max Martin for not only popularizing the late ’90s pop sound (Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears, etc.), but also the current more rock-oriented pop sound (Kelly Clarkson, Pink, etc.).
