Don’t like The Hives — still


While I love Swedish rock bands, I do not like the Hives.

It’s just too much of a winking send up of the Rolling Stones in the late 70s / early 80s, too much mugging for the camera, too much focus on the outfits.

I don’t like the late nite MTV ads with the skinny white guy dancing, struggling in a sweater, cavorting on a running track, or using gum to anchor his drink. I hate ads that are designed to annoy.
