Default This is Big News, Sorry Gretsch

Swedish pop sensation ABBA reunited on Sunday to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the group. Agnetha Faltskog, Bjorn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, and Anni-Frid (Frida) Lyngstad all appeared at a party at the Berns Salonger hotel in downtown Stockholm.

According to Expressen, they played "Me and I" and waxed poetic about the influence their group had on pop music. No videos have emerged form the performance but photos can be seen below.

Muhammad Ali died over the weekend. That's big news.

C'mon, Gretsch. Get your head out of your ass. :)

How does a band that formed in '72 celebrate a 50th anniversary?

Is mathematics applied differently in Sweden?

According to countless stories about the Norwegian, the Dane and the Swede, yes. At least in the Norwegian version. :-)

That's why it's big news - they've discovered a time warp.

I think it's metric. So 50 x .665

Nostalgia is very potent.
I really wasn't looking forward to dusting off my shrine to Agnetha, but since it's the best carnival ride music I know of, I'm all in!

Maybe they count the years they sang in a garage before that.

I can't listen to ABBA.

Everytime I do, my mullet grows back.

It's not Abba's 50th anniversary, rather it's 50 years since Benny and Bjorn met. Most of the press reporting has made that mistake.
