Hackskeptic’s 500 Greatest Songs: The Hives – Hate To Say I Told You So (2000)

455 – The Hives – Hate To Say I Told You So (2000)
Written by Randy Fitzsimmons
Produced by Pelle Gunderfelt
Label – Burning Heart

5 brash, comic book garage rock revivalists with a mystical manager and songwriter from a sleepy little town in Sweden (Fagersta). The vast fjords couldn’t drown this killer riff and just for the briefest of moments one thought that punk rock had found its new heroes. The Hives have produced other great singles, but none have the powerful impact of this, their greatest 3 minutes.
