80's Hair Metal does Abba

Listen & Download: Nation - Waterloo
Download: Nation - Waterloo

Abba's breakthrough single works surprisingly well as an over-the-top hair metal rocker. Not that anyone will remember who (or what) Nation was, but I credit them with creating the best reimagining of an Abba song in this style, complete with unnecessary guitar solos. The sound is somewhere between Sweet and Journey. Sublimely stupid.
