Watch The Hives’ Extremely Fun Kimmel Performance

The Hives evidently do not care about aging gracefully. The Swedish garage-rockers returned earlier this year with The Death Of Randy Fitzsimmons, their first new album in more than a decade, and it’s full of the same kind of rambunctious, peacocking riffage that made the band famous in the first place. Back in the day, Pelle Almqvist used to talk a big game about blowing other bands off the stage, and then he worked extremely hard to back it up. Based on the performance that they gave on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, they’re still bringing that same energy.
