The History of ABBA

The History of ABBA Formed in Stockholm, Sweden in 1972, ABBA consisted of keyboardist and vocalist Benny Andersson, guitarist and vocalist Bjorn Ulvaeus and singers Anni-Frid Lyngstad and Agnetha Faltskog. After a few years of writing songs together, ABBA finally found success when they won the Eurovision Song Contest in 1974. The world started to take notice of their pop and glam rock sound the next year, and thanks to "S.O.S.," the band would experience a series of hits around the world, particularly in the UK, the U.S., Australia and Sweden. Though ABBA issued their last album and made their last performances in the 1980s, they experienced a revival of their popularity in the '90s thanks to cover bands, a greatest hits compilation, and Broadway show.
