The Hives – STOP/WATCH

Leave it to the Hives to only need two words to rock. The Swedish garage punk outfit take cues from the Ramones in sound and style in this 60-second performance, mastering the art of brevity and swapping out their signature suits for biker jackets, snug jeans and square shades. Pastiche aside, the trio power through “Come On!” with revving guitar riffs, hammering percussion, and brash antiphony that leaves the head pounding — if only, because it’s a headache trying to figure out how they manage to get as much noise out of a single snare and a guitar.
