Och det är stort för dem; redan som sexåringar upptäckte The Hives vad rock´n´roll var när de hörde AC/DC första gången, säger bandet i ett uttalande:
"When we were six years old in Fagersta, Sweden, we were struck for the first time by the lightning that is rock'n'roll. That lightning was AC/DC.
Now many years later we find ourselves in a successful rock'n'roll band and going on tour with them. It couldn't be better if we made it up. Life rules."
