Released in June 2012, Lex Hives is the fifth studio album by Swedish garage rockers The Hives. Containing boisterous, pogo-worthy sing-alongs such as “Come On” and “Go Right Ahead,” Lex Hives took five years to produce as it was the band’s first self-produced effort. Frontman Howlin’ Pelle Almqvist said in an interview, “Rather than squeeze in some studio time, we could go in to the studio whenever we wanted. It turns out that having five producers who have an equal say of everything isn’t that fast.” And if that riff from “Go Right Ahead” sounds familiar, it’s not your imagination. After The Hives recorded the song, they realized it sounded just like Electric Light Orchestra’s “Don’t Bring Me Down” so they called up Jeff Lynne of ELO, got his blessing and shared the songwriting credit with him on Lex Hives.
