The A-Teens are a pop group from Stockholm, Sweden, formed in 1998. They were first called the ABBA Teens, but a member of ABBA said that he would sue if they did not change their name. Therefore, not wanting to cause a confrontation with their musical predecessor and icon, they shortened their name to A-Teens. In 1999, they released their first album ABBA Generation consisting of ABBA covers. After they released their second album, Teen Spirit, a year later, they toured in the US with American pop star Aaron Carter. Their penultimate album in the US, Pop 'til you drop, also known in Europe and Asia as New Arrival, was released in 2002. The group went on tour with Play and LYNT that year. Finally, their lastest album Greatest Hits was released in Europe in 2004, leaving their American fans waiting for the lastest installment in A-Teens albums. In this album, they have a couple new songs, including a cover of Nick Kamen's single "I Promised Myself". Like many before them, the A-Teens have not achieved success like ABBA has, but then again, what ABBA had was something rare and very hard to recreate.
In late 2004, Dhani Lennevald released his first single as a solo artist titled "Girl Talk".
Their video for the ABBA cover "Dancing Queen" bears an unmistakable likeness plotwise to the 1985 John Hughes film "The Breakfast Club". In addition the principal in the movie and in the video is played by the same actor.

A television special entitled "The Madness of Prince Charming" was aired in the UK in 2003 documenting Adam's career highlights, as well as his struggle with mental illness. The group went on tour with Play and LYNT that year. Since the 2002 incident, Adam has occasionally been featured in news stories surrounding potential projects, his medical condition, as well as tribute bands devoted to celebrating his career. After they released their second album, Teen Spirit, a year later, they toured in the US with American pop star Aaron Carter. Their penultimate album in the US, Pop 'til you drop, also known in Europe and Asia as New Arrival, was released in 2002. The plans were derailed when an altercation in a pub in England led to a brush with the law, and the revelation that Adam suffered from bipolar disorder, the mental illness commonly known as "manic depression" - to which some attibute his extraordinary creativity.
In 1999, they released their first album ABBA Generation consisting of ABBA covers. Adam was poised to join an 80s focused tribute tour in early 2002. Therefore, not wanting to cause a confrontation with their musical predecessor and icon, they shortened their name to A-Teens. The box set included 66 tracks on three CDs, and quickly sold through the initial 10,000 units. They were first called the ABBA Teens, but a member of ABBA said that he would sue if they did not change their name. "Antbox," a retrospective box set spanning Adam's career from the late 1970s through the 1990s, was released in late 2001. The A-Teens are a pop group from Stockholm, Sweden, formed in 1998. A new generation of Ant-influenced artists covered Adam and the Ants' hits during the 90s, including Elastica, Sugar Ray, Trent Reznor, and Robbie Williams.
Sara has herpetophobia. While Adam and his group (which included longtime partner Marco Pirroni) played in smaller venues than they had played in the 1980s, the houses were often packed with enthusiastic fans. Sara is the youngest and smallest member of the group, and is a brunette. in support of the album.

The mid-1990s was a time of reinvention for Adam, as he re-entered the pop music world with the album "Wonderful." The title track was a success, as was a tour of the U.S. Dhani is the tallest in the group, and has blond hair and blue eyes. He had also acquired a stalker which placed him under great stress and as Graham's career took off the relationship faltered.

By this time Ant had relocated to Los Angeles and had a long term relationship with Heather Graham. Amit is half-Indian and half-Swedish. The album was another moderate success, and featured the hit single "Room at the Top." In 1993, Adam toured in support of a planned album called "Persuasion." For reasons known only to Adam, his entourage, and MCA Records, the album is still unreleased to this day.

The turn of the decade, 1990, saw Adam Ant re-entering the pop music world with the album "Manners and Physique," a collaboration with Andre Cymone, a solo artist and an early member of Prince's band. Marie Eleonor Serneholt (picture) (http://czech.jinak.cz/lars/php/news/images/startup/marie_serneholt_1.jpg), born July 11, 1983. In 1985 Ant stlll had enough appeal to secure a spot at the "Live Aid" concert but rather than perform a crowd pleasing set of old hits (as Queen did to revive their career) he did songs from the latest album and as a result his sales continued to decline. As the 80s wore on, Adam's attention turned toward acting, with an emphasis on TV and movie roles.
Adam's greatest solo success was during the "Friend or Foe" album era, which included the hit single "Goody Two Shoes." Other hits during this early 1980s timeframe were "Desperate but not Serious" and "Hello, I Love You." Later in the 1980s, Adam worked with producers including Phil Collins (on the "Strip" album), and veteran Tony Visconti ("Vive Le Rock"), achieving varying degrees of success on the charts. Adam's colorful, charismatic onscreen persona was perfect for the new medium. Similar to contemporaries Duran Duran, Adam became one of the first pop video stars. In the first two or three years of the decade, Adam and the Ants had several chart topping hits, including "Stand and Deliver," "Dog Eat Dog," "Prince Charming," and "AntRap." The early days of MTV provided Adam with another vehicle to get his image and message to the masses - the promotional video.
Unquestionably, the high point of Adam Ant's career happened in the very early 1980s. One of the tracks from the Jubilee soundtrack 'Deutscher Girls' was released as a single once the Ants had chart success in 1981. His first major outing as an actor was in 1978 in the Derek Jarman film "Jubilee" both as a character actor and performing songs. Ant was representative of the 'Art School Punk' contingent that were followers of the original punk groups and can be seen in the audience in film of early Sex Pistols gigs.
Similar to David Bowie, Madonna, and other famous shapeshifters in popular music, Adam was notorious for reinventing his image with each subsequent album release. Though he started out playing jagged punk rock music, he gradually altered his image, evolving to a more mainstream pop star. Adam Ant is the stage name of Stuart Leslie Goddard (born November 3, 1954, London, England), who was the lead singer of the highly successful 1980s pop group Adam and the Ants.
