|Sweden's no.1 pop band, Acid House Kings, was formed in 1991 by brothers Niklas and Johan Angergård and Joakim Ödlund. With immaculate taste in music stemming from a childhood of Elvis Presley, an almost complete set of Sarah singles and a 100% complete set of the Smiths singles, the Kings set out to define pop music.|
We're the Acid House Kings Between 1992 and 2002, inspired by the 10 albums in 10 years from Felt, Acid House Kings released a trilogy of albums with one album released every fifth year. The first, "Pop, look & listen!" (1992) is maybe best left unmentioned. The Kings rate it 2.4 out of 5.

In 2001, the Kings built their own, now famous, Summersound Studios. Here, Acid House Kings could spend endless amounts of time to create the more sophisticated third album "Mondays are like Tuesdays and Tuesdays are like Wednesdays" (2002).

It's an easy, breezy, beautiful album and the kings rate it 4.2 out of 5.
Spurred by the quality of "Mondays,", Acid House Kings set out to break their own five years between albums record, while still yet again refining the meaning of pop music. The fourth album, "Sing along with Acid House Kings" (2005), is to date the crown jewel in the Acid House Kings catalogue and a should-have-
Allmusic stated it was "one of the best releases, indie or not, of 2005" and the Kings played the big festivals in Sweden.
