Gothenburg is famed as the home of melodic death metal but for those who prefer more gentle melodies the city punches well above its weight. Electronic music is particularly well represented with the likes of The Knife, The Tough Alliance, Amina Hocine, Leila K, Thermostatic and Auto-Auto. José González and Ace of Base are probably the best known artists excluding worldwide phenomenon Crazy Frog.
