The Hives have been mostly silent over the past five years, but the Swedish rockers are ready to make their comeback in June with the release of Lex Hives, their fifth studio album. "Go Right Ahead," the first single from the album, finds the band playing to their strengths  bold riffs, blunt hooks, snappy beats – while augmenting their grooves with sassy brass. "Here is our new song," says frontman Howlin' Pelle Almquist. "We have done what we can with it. Now it's your turn."

Lex Hives is due in stores on June 5th, but you can stream "Go Right Ahead" today.

“You Oughta Know”

Alanis Morissette | 1995

This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
