The Hives guitarist Vigilante Carlstroem tells Jeff Niesel of the Cleveland Free Times that he understands the comparisons his band has been getting. “I can see why people compare us to the White Stripes and the Strokes,” he says. “It’s probably easier to do that than compare us to Limp Bizkit. In England, it’s like a new thing. People have to compare it to some bands, and that’s probably the best way to do it. I like both those bands — the White Stripes and the Strokes.” Freetimes.com has since removed the article.
