"Stockholm is the new Sunset Strip!" --attributed to Chris Laney of Zan Clan.
It's no secret that Sweden has been vigorously grinding the hard rock wheel. A quarter of a century has passed since Southern California ruled the glam/sleeze scene of late 80s hair metal.

We wanted to take you all on a guided tour of some of our favorite bands to look for on Sweden's "Stockholm Strip".
