"Kent" is a Swedish rock band founded in Eskilstuna in 1990, with the name ''Coca-Cola Kids'', later ''Jones & Giftet'' (Jones & the Poison), and ''Havsänglar'' (Angel sharks, lit. Sea angels).

They have tried an international career with English versions of the albums “Isola” and “Hagnesta Hill” with accompanying US tours for the former, but gave up after not reaching the breakthrough they had hoped for.
