THE ROCK SONG OF THE DAY IS: HELLACOPTERS - TOYS AD FLAVOURS

"Toys and Flavours" is a single taken from the album High Visibility, released in 2000 by Swedish hard rock band Hellacopters

"Toys and Flavours", by Hellacopters
In 2000 the band headed back into the studio to record their first album with Robert Dahlqvist who by then had earned the nickname "Strängen" or "Strings" due to all the strings he had broken during rehearsals. It was also their first time working with producer Chips Kiesbye, who had worked with artists such as Sahara Hotnights, Millencolin, Thåström, The Nomads, The Turpentines, his own band Sator, and many other Swedish rock bands. Kiesbye would become their producer of choice and he produced all of the band's subsequent studio albums.  

High Visibility spent twelve weeks on the Swedish charts and was certified gold in that nation. The band set out on an Scandinavian and European tour in support of the album along with the then-unknown band The Hives as their opening act. High Visibility was later released in the United States and the band's tour was chronicled in the documentary Goodnight Cleveland.
