The Hives exploded onto the scene in the early ’00s with the release of Veni Vidi Vicious. The album title itself is a play on words from Julius Caesar’s quote, “Veni, vidi, vici,” which in English translates to “I came, I saw, I conquered.” Conquering is just what the Hives did as they took over U.S. airwaves with their hit single “Hate To Say I Told You So.” Since then the band has been hard at work creating new music and in 2012 they released their fifth studio album, Lex Hives.
