Thirty-four years ago today, Per Almqvist was born in Fagersta, Sweden. You and I know him better as Howlin’ Pelle Almqvist, the wisecracking leader of beloved garage rockers The Hives. To celebrate, here is my favorite Hives number, off 2000’s Veni Vidi Vicious. Pop perfection meets utter bedlam within a minute and thirty-five seconds. Talk about a land-speed record!
