The Hives, Remixed by YYY's Nick Zinner

Very, very cool news here: the Hives (MySpace) have been remixed by Yeah Yeah Yeahs' MySpace) Nick Zinner!

The man-as-pencil guitar god spruced up the otherwise bland "Tick Tick Boom" single with a sharper guitar line, too many "ticks" to count, and a bunch more hand claps. Sharper, more angular, jumpier, more energetic -- I like it.

Damn -- looks like the track's protected. I'll work on that. Download it here. Pretend you're from the U.K. if you don't really live there -- the thing's only available to the Brits.
