The Hives - Originality Speaks

This Rock Band lets their originality speak for them. As a matter of fact, It is one of their strong points that captures and mesmerize their followers. They formed the group in a small town (Fagersta, Sweden) in 1993. They started perfecting their craft and by the year 1997, they released their first album (Barely Legal). Their style is a mix of originality and some spice to tease their audience, not to mention their cool outfits of black and white that serves as their uniform or rather their trademark.

Tours began which took The Hives to different parts of Europe and Sweden gathering a swarm of rock and roll maniacs that continue to flourish by each visit . Soon enough, a big discovery hit the group when the all famous all around music fan Alan McGee saw these young and energetic group perform on German TV. For the band, this started their new journey in producing great hits in the music regime.

Fall Out Boy - Is it really destiny?

Who could have imagined that each member of this band have played for different hardcore underground bands in Chicago in the late 90s.

The members of the band are Patrick Stump (vocals & guitar), Joseph Trohman (guitar), Peter Wentz (bass) and Andrew Hurley (drums).

Is it luck or plain destiny that brought these four musicians together? Well, for me it doesn't really matter as long as they play their music very well.

Arcade Fire - Hottest band in Canada

Arcade Fire was initially formed by husband and wife Win Butler and Régine Chassagne. In late 2003 to the beginning of 2004, the current line-up was solidified which includes Richard Reed Parry, William Butler, Tim Kingsbury, Sarah Neufeld and Jeremy Gara. Then it all began, their first full-length album (Funeral) was recorded.
