Music: there have been many internationally successful bandas, such as Roxette, Ace of Base, Europe, The Cardigans, Army of Lovers, A-Teens, Robyn and The Hives, to name some of the biggest. Max Martin's multiplatinum-selling production and songwritting work for an artists like Backstreet Boys, Kelly Clarkson, Pink, Britney Spears and Katy Perry. Nobody has influenced electronic dance music in the 21st century more than the Swedish House Mafia, and the entire score of the vastly influential American TV musical hit show Glee has been recorded and produced in Sweden.
