    He was annoying but it was hilarious. The Hives we're so damn amazing. So much energy, Howlin' Pelle was in the crowd so much, he was all over the place. He was full of himself to the point where it was awesome and not douchey.

    With everything he said, I didn't think it was actually him thinking he was god, they put on a damn fine show, and are way more entertaining than other bands similar.

    Actually now that I think of it, he wasn't annoying at all, cause I was pretty much laughing or clapping the whole time.

    I don't see what the problem is with The Hives. That has always been The Hives experience! Pelle's banter and OTT persona is as much a part of The Hives as the fat bloke from Fucked Up getting naked. If after nearly twenty years you expect something different then you went to the wrong show.

    And we got attacked by a swarm of bees at the start of the Hives show on the right side of the stage. Too damn funny.

    I saw that, so weird how they were just in the one area going crazy. There was a bag or something lying unattended right in the middle of where they all were, someone nearby watching this all happen before the set had the theory that someone set it up, the hives... bees whatnot. But no one ever challenged the actual plausibility of that as the bees dispersed and The Hives set started and we were too busy dancing to figure it out.

    Such a fun set. He is definitely one of the best front men around. They sounded fantastic and I danced my ass off.

    I think I saw that/walked through it.

    Yeah LOL at everyone so butthurt over the lead singer's onstage persona. I thought it was fucking great and the Hives were one of the weekend highlights for me. Didn't hurt that I was able to get fairly close to the stage (in the "pit") without much effort. Great set, they played everything I wanted to hear and more.

    Fun, entertaining set. I came for the shade of the sound booth but stayed for the good times.

    I see the lead singer cut his hair, just like Alex Turner of the Arctic Monkeys cut his hair. What is it with lead singers cutting their hair? I would have seen the Hives if they were on a different sate and not on the Snoop/Dre stage.

    It was one of the most fun sets of the weekend !! strange how a swarm of bees were around the right side of the stage before their show started...

    "Die All Right" would have been the cherry on top, but no problem. I smiled all day afterwards.

    Awesome show, did anyone else think it took a little while to get going? Or am I slighting it by comparing it to the energy for Justice and ATDI after them?

    Always wanted to see this band, and so happy I got to see them in this setting. They were so fun and sounded great! One of my favorites of the weekend.

    Loved their set and especially the banter. Regret not doing the signing, as I walked into the ZIA tent when they were there and they were very approachable and the line was getting short.

    Oasis, Beatles, Bono, James Brown and a bunch of rappers have done the same schtick with varying degrees of success/seriousness.

    Also met them after the set at the Zia tent. They were cheery and really fan-friendly. Them/their band manager upgraded me to a VIP wristband since they knew I was following them from Australia for a few of their Californian shows (I was the one at the barrier with the banner). To the guy in the artist pass area between the two main stage barriers who I cussed/yelled at for taking the plectrum Nick (guitarist) threw at me, but landed short of the fence .. I'm sorry for getting angry. I still don't like you, but I was lost in the moment and waiting out there with the Dre/Snoop fans from midday to get a good spot killed my politeness and any part of selflessness left in me.

    I reckon Pelle's banter is well balanced between comedic and faux-arrogance. They don't take themselves too seriously, which would clearly come as a relief.

    My biggest regret of 2012, not seeing The Hives! Looked like a very memorable performance.

    You can also see Dennis Lyxzn of Refused enjoying the set in the official pro-shot of Tick Tick Boom during the sit-down part.

    One of my favorite sets. Nearly hurt myself whilst breaking it down.

    Was happy not to be one of the handful of A-holes not sitting down during Tick Tick Boom. "I Hate Having Fun."

    That Tick Tick Boom webcast was awesome. One of the best parts of Coachella 2012.

    Also, I spotted myself in the webcast, so I couldn't help but point it out.
