Watch: The Hives Get Wild On ‘Conan’

    The Hives have a new album out, Lex Hives, their fifth overall and their first in five years. And the group is still doing their Hives-y thing: last night, the Swedes took to Conan to perform “Wait A Minute” while decked out in tuxes and top hats. They even stopped the song at the very beginning and asked the crowd to stand up and clap along before resuming again. It’s a very cliched rock and roll move, but stodgy soundstages are not the Hives’ natural environment. They do not disappoint when the cameras are rolling, though, ripping through the new wave-inflected song with abandon. Watch it below.
