My earliest memory of The Hives is playing "Tick Tick Boom" with my brother on Guitar Hero 6!
I got heavily into Lex Hives when it was released, and I also started listening to The Black and White Album around the same time.
The Hives are an amazing band because they are cool without trying and this is because of how unique they are. They don't try to be different, they are different and they embrace it instead of fighting it.
