Über-ABBA tribute A*Teens assembled Stockholm, Sweden-based adolescents Marie Serneholt, Sara Lumholdt, Dhani Lennevald, and Amit Paul.
Beginning work on their debut album The ABBA Generation in 1998, two years later the group topped the European charts with their cover of "Mamma Mia," achieving the feat exactly a quarter of a century after the original ABBA hit number one with their own rendition of the song. The aforementioned LP contains similarly modernized renditions of ABBA classics like "Dancing Queen," "Mamma Mia," "S.O.S.," and "Take a Chance on Me." After tours with like-minded acts such as *N Sync and Britney Spears and an appearance on Nickolodeon's All That tour in summer 2000, the group delivered their follow-up album, Teen Spirit, which featured original material. In spring 2002, they covered the Elvis Presley classic "Can't Help Falling in Love," later performing the single on Nickelodeon's popular Slime Time Live in late May. The song was also included on A*Teens' third album, Pop 'Til You Drop, which appeared on Universal in June. ~ Jason Ankeny
