Kent is a Swedish rock band founded in Eskilstuna in 1990, with the name Coca-Cola Kids, later Jones & Giftet (Jones & the Poison), and HavsÃ¤nglar (Angel sharks, lit. Sea angels). The band's logo is distinctive, using a lowercase "k" and the ITC Avant Garde Gothic Book typeface. Kent have had several big Swedish radio hits since the breakthrough single â€śKrÃ¤m (sÃ¥ nÃ¤ra fÃ¥r ingen gÃ¥) â€ť. As of 2005, they are probably the most popular rock band in Sweden, but are more or less unknown outside Scandinavia. They have tried an international career with English versions of the albums â€śIsolaâ€ť and â€śHagnesta Hillâ€ť with accompanying US tours for the former, but gave up after not reaching the breakthrough they had hoped for.
