Det er på tid till dansa!

The Swedes have a reputation for being an attractive people. This is totally wrong, as you will see if you pay a visit to Svenska Dansband, the online home of Swedish bands of the 1970s.

For instance, have a look at Bandex. Their lineup appears to consist of Ron Burgundy, Dungeonmaster of Indeterminate Gender, Stern Receptionist, Cincinnati Bengals Wide Receiver Circa 1973, and John Denver's Macho Brother.

Or the Hermansons, who look like IFK Göteborg's equivalent of Bill Swerski and the Superfans.

Or the Rolf Lönns, whose portrait reveals the palpable tension between the glasses-wearing and non-glasses-wearing factions of the band.
