    I have loved The A*Teens since I was 19 years old. I have all their CDs, and I have not heard a single song I don't like. They do many great songs! I love their ABBA Generation CD. I love the remixes of the ABBA songs they did. They were beautiful. They did some other remixes of other songs as well, and they were wonderful as well. They also did some of their own songs, and I loved them. I honestly think they should've gotten more credit for their hard work. I know they've broken up for now, but I hope they someday get back together and do some more songs. They were truly amazing.moreless
