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.

“Vans”

The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
