Borrowing from the Motown garage rock of the MCS, Stooges and Sonic Rendezvous Band, as well as stadium rockers like KISS and The Who.
It’s time to bring the rock, Grand Rock that is, in the form of Sweden’s The Hellacopters, and their 1999 album. Borrowing equally from the Motown garage rock of the MCS, Stooges and Sonic Rendezvous Band, as well as stadium rockers like KISS and The Who, The Hellacopters combine it all into one big, bombastic record. While the stripped down garage rock of The White Stripes and Strokes would kick-off the '00s, The Hellacopters among a slew of other Swedish acts would put their own high-octane spin on it. We explore their game-changing third album, and discuss why Grande Rock wasn't a Grande Hit.
