A lot has been written about Mando Diao; Sweden's cockiest band, the endless touring, the inter- national success, the fashion icons. The path from the first album "Bring'em In", the pursing media feud with Kent, to having European radio's most played song in 2009 has been a long and arduous adventure. The statistics are an impressive resume of productivity. Since 2002 Mando Diao has made 7 studio albums that have sold more than 2 million copies worldwide. The last album "Infruset" with the Swedish lyrics from poet Gustaf Froding was a cultural phenomenon in Sweden, selling 4 x platinum and being number 1 for 17 weeks. In their career they have played more than 1500 concerts in more than 30 countries and are festival headliners across Europe. Their videos have become viral phenomena getting more than 7 million views on YouTube. They have released a B-side and a Greatest Hits collection and even an MTV Unplugged album and DVD. Many contemporary bands have come and gone but Mando Diao has continued to reach new heights and redefine popular music.
