The best Swedish punk bands all sang in Swedish, so I'm not sure if it's of interest to anyone...

But the Sounds sang in English. I think I already posted We're Not living In America by them, so here is one of their earliest songs instead.

Oh, WTF... Here's a crash course in Swedish punk rock.

I'll start of with De Lyckliga Kompisarna and their hit Ishockeyfrisyr, as that actually has a slight relevance to this forum. Ishockeyfrisyr is something noone would say, but is a more formal version of the word hockeyfrilla, literally meaning hockey haircut and meaning mullet.



And then Docent Död with Solglasögon (Sun Glasses).



This group is called Stockholms Negrer (Negroes of Stockholm), but afaik they were all white.


I'll let KSMB have two songs. First Sex Noll Två (Six Zero Two)...


... and then Adolf...


OK, now finally for the good stuff: Ebba Grön
They were huge and drew large crowds. I'll let them have three songs:

Staten och kapitalet (Govt and Big Corp) is actually a cover of a song from an old progg band, but Ebba Grön played it roughly twice as fast and with a lot more anger and swagger. Basically about the government and Big Corp being in bed together, but the Swedish idiom used is in the same boat (which you have in English but with a slightly different meaning), but they're not the ones rowing and the whip that is cracking is not tickling their fat necks... Yeah, you get the gist.


800 grader (800 degrees). "We're freezing to death, it's so cold, poor child, but soon it'll get warm, 800 degrees, you can trust me..."


This one actually has an English title, but curiously the lyrics are still entirely in Swedish.


There! No need to thank me. :drink:

Variation on a theme...

Oh, wait... I guess Sahara Hotnights may qualify as punk too, even if they arrived to the scene a decade too late or so...
