The Hives, from Sweden, rose to prominence in the early 2000s during the garage rock revival. Their mainstream success came with the release of the album Veni Vidi Vicious, containing the single “Hate to Say I Told You So”. The band has been acclaimed by music critics as one of the best live rock bands.

The band claims it was formed in 1993 (although formed in 1989 under a different name and sound) under the guidance of Randy Fitzsimmons. Fitzsimmons suggested that they form a garage rock band. He gave each band member a letter asking them to start the band. Fitzsimmons allegedly acts as a songwriter and manager for the band. The band recorded a demo titled Sounds Like Sushi in 1994. The following year they were signed to Burning Heart Records, a Swedish independent record label. The following year they released their debut EP Oh Lord! When? How? Almqvist decided to promote the band to Burning Heart.

After a run of Californian live shows and the two weekends at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival (15 and 22 April), the band performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on 23 April 2012. The music video for “Go Right Ahead” was released on 9 May 2012.

Since its release, “Come On!” has been used as the theme for Xbox One’s Invitation commercials, as well as in an episode of Workaholics and in the documentary The Crash Reel. The song “1000 Answers,” meanwhile, was featured on the soundtrack of the video game by EA Sports, FIFA 12.

Due to health reasons, Dr. Matt Destruction left the band in late 2013 and was replaced by Randy bassist Johan Gustafsson, who then went by the stage name The Johan and Only.

On 13 February 2015, the band released the single “Blood Red Moon”.

The single “I’m Alive” was released digitally on 17 May 2019, with a limited edition 7-inch vinyl available on 28 June. This was followed by another single later that year, “Good Samaritan.” The band toured the US in 2019 alongside fellow Swedish band Refused, with the run of dates dubbed the Scream Team Tour. Chris Dangerous took a hiatus from the band to recover from surgery, and was replaced on the tour by former Queens of the Stone Age drummer Joey Castillo.

The Hives’ first live album, Live at Third Man Records, was released on 25 September 2020.
