Music Video of the Week- The Hives
I don’t know why, but I’ve been listening to bands like The White Stripes and The Hives a lot lately. Maybe it’s because Jack White’s new album is all over the place, or maybe I just have a fascination with bands with the word “The” in front of them. It could be either one.

They aren’t Avril Lavigne “punk rock,” these guys are the real deal. They have a raw sound with catchy riffs and howling vocals. These guys have even been voted one of the best bands to see live. Going to one of their shows is on my bucket list.
I’m pretty sure they are working on a new album right now. My favorite albums are Veni Vidi Vicious and Tyrannosaurus Hives, which you should definitely check out. Here is one of their older songs, entitled “Die, All Right!”
