The Hives: "Civilization's Dying"

The monochromatically dressed Swedes return with this cover of a 1981 tune by the Indianapolis punk band Zero Boys. The Hives' version is more polished than the original, but it's still as blazing as a rant about the world going to hell in a handbasket ought to be. Howlin' Pelle Almqvist lives up to his nickname as he spits lyrics like "Civilization's crying/And I won't try to deny it/We got a problem, son/Something's gotta be done." Sounds like he's as angry over Dina leaving RHNJ as we are.
