Swedish album covers

The Daily Dish links to some truly terrifying Swedish album covers and a group photo of Microsoft in 1978.

Here's Microsoft in 1978. No, I wouldn't have invested either.

And then... More vivid, enthralling details are here.

The noun víking means "pirate raid." The word is now used (incorrectly) to describe all the peoples of Scandinavia and their settlements. Apparently, most of the fierce ones got killed, or stayed in the warmer places like England where their descendents carry on the Viking traditions of ravaging europe as soccer hooligans and rugby players. Some came back, to form the core of the Swedish military, but apparently the Sheep Herders and Twig Gatherers became dominant.

Hmmm. These guys must be descended from the Sheep Herders of the North. I see nothing in those faces that would invoke me to say, "From the Fury of the Northmen, O Lord, Protect Us!"

I did some further research on the Swede musicians. Results at Castle Argghhh!
