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.
