A-Teens

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.

In addition the principal in the movie and in the video is played by the same actor. Cindy Wilson departed the next year, not returning until touring began for a 1998 (see 1998 in music) greatest hits collection entitled Time Capsule: Songs For a Future Generation. Their video for the ABBA cover "Dancing Queen" bears an unmistakable likeness plotwise to the 1985 John Hughes film "The Breakfast Club". In 1999, Pierson recorded with Nina, a Japanese/American/British band. In late 2004, Dhani Lennevald released his first single as a solo artist titled "Girl Talk". In 1992 they released the album Good Stuff. 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. The band spent three years recovering, and returned with Cosmic Thing in 1989 (see 1989 in music), which launched three hits, "Roam", "Deadbeat Club" and "Love Shack", which is perhaps their most well-remembered song today.

In this album, they have a couple new songs, including a cover of Nick Kamen's single "I Promised Myself". After Whammy! in 1983 (see 1983 in music), a Schneider solo album and Bouncing Off the Satellites (1986; see 1986 in music), Ricky Wilson died of what was later revealed to be AIDS-related causes. 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. Though recording sessions with David Byrne (of Talking Heads) failed, the recordings were released as Mesopotamia in 1982 (see 1982 in music). The group went on tour with Play and LYNT that year. Although part of the new wave movement, their music was weirder and more experimental than most new wave, indulging in all manner of odd vocal and synth effects, creating a quirky dance sound that became very popular in the fringes of the music world. 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. Their debut, The B-52's, was a minor hit, and the follow-up, Wild Planet, reached the Top 20 on the album charts.

In 1999, they released their first album ABBA Generation consisting of ABBA covers. Their first single, "Rock Lobster" in 1978 (see 1978 in music), was an underground success that led to the B-52's performing at CBGB's and Max's Kansas City in New York City. Therefore, not wanting to cause a confrontation with their musical predecessor and icon, they shortened their name to A-Teens. Along with Wilson and Pierson, Keith Strickland, Ricky Wilson and Fred Schneider formed the band after a drunken night at a Chinese restaurant. They were first called the ABBA Teens, but a member of ABBA said that he would sue if they did not change their name. The name comes from the bouffant wigs that are a part of the band's distinctive look, worn by singers Cindy Wilson and Kate Pierson. The A-Teens are a pop group from Stockholm, Sweden, formed in 1998. The B-52's are a rock band from Athens, Georgia, the first of many from the college town that has become one of the most important centers in alternative rock.
