Kent (2)


Swedish alternative/pop rock band formed in Eskilstuna, Sweden in 1990. With eleven #1 albums, five #1 singles, 23 Swedish Grammy Awards, and over 3 million record sales, Kent is considered the most popular rock/pop group within Sweden and throughout Scandinavia.

With origins rooted in distorted rock, Kent found mainstream success through their alternative rock albums of the mid-1990s, 2000s and 2010s, the latter decades during which they adopted elements of synth-pop. On 16 March 2016, the band announced that they would release their final album, titled [i]Då som nu för alltid[/i], after 26 years of performing. The band's announcement noted that the dissolution of the band is voluntary and is despite their continued success.
