3570. “T.H.E.H.I.V.E.S” by The Hives

Fan video:

AllMusic calls “T.H.E.H.I.V.E.S.” (listen for that on the chorus) ” bit like the band’s “Emotional Rescue”: A mash-up of hip-hop-inspired beats, new wave keyboards, and garage rock guitars…” I think that captures the essence of this fun, atypical song pretty accurately. Its also a great “we are awesome” tune describing how amazing it is for the fans to see The Hives. The chorus is a self affirmation:

We rule the world
This is our world
We rule the world
This is our world
T.H.E.H.I.V.E.S.

…and the bridge describes how hard they rock:

When you’re all ripped up around a quarter to ten
Gonna piece you back together by eleven and then
When you sweated it out and you’re all soaking wet
Then we’ll do it again

The music might not sound like typical Hives, but so what? It still rocks and is full of the fun, cocky attitude that helps make the band one of the greatest current acts.
