Radley Balko (of theagitator.com) has written an articulate, highly analytical piece on the success of Swedish neo-garage-rock bands and their amusingly hypocritical denouncement of capitalism.

I'll be a jerk and give away the ending:

Sixty years of Swedish socialism gave us ABBA and Ace of Base. Ten years of quasi-capitalism, and Sweden's holding the flag for the new garage revolution. That's as convincing a case for markets as I need.


The entire article is fantastic and well worth your reading time.
