The Hives Bring Me Down With New Single

Today, the Hives released this video from 'Lex Hives,' the band's first album since 2007. That's an awfully long time to come up with a song that's so derivative. It will take most of you about 10 seconds to realize you've heard "Go Right Ahead" before. It was when you were a kid and your parents were listening to AM radio in the station wagon. Yep, that's more or less "Don't Bring Me Down" from ELO back in '79. I haven't had this big of a chuckle since 2001 when I thought I was listening to Tom Petty's "American Girl" and it tuned out to be The Strokes' "Last Nite." Anyway, 'Lex Hives' will be out June 5. Jeff Lynne's check should be cut by then.
