| Last updated
People are flocking to social media in stitches over a band pranking a crowd after announcing it would play an Oasis song.
Swedish rock band The Hives - members including Howlin' Pelle, Nicholaus Arson, Chris Dangerous, Vigilante Carlstroem and, The Johan and Only - have been touring worldwide promoting their upcoming album The Death of Randy Fitzsimmons.
While you'd think people would go to one of The Hives' gigs to, well, see The Hives play their own songs, the Swedish group asked their audience if they wanted to hear a bit of Oasis instead.
In the clip - posted to TikTok by the band - The Hives can be seen asking the crowd if they like a series of other bands.
They say: "Who here likes the Arctic Monkeys? Anybody here ever heard of a band called Oasis? Do you like Oasis? Would you like to hear a song by Oasis?"
The questions are met with screams and cheers from members of the audience, however, the excitement is quickly cut short when the band reveals what it's actually going to play next.
The band says: "That's cool but here's one by The Hives."
Thankfully, hopeful Oasis fans in the audience didn't Look Back in Anger at the prank, with several chuckles heard, a couple of sighs, but lots of cheers still flowing.
I mean, the audience were at The Hives' gig after all, so what do they expect?
People have flocked to the clip in amusement over The Hives' joke.
A Twitter user wrote: "I saw them years ago first on the lineup at a festival, he came out and said that its reverse festival and the best band are playing first. Good to see them still at it. Great band."
"Knew this was coming, a real hate to say I told you so moment," another commented.
A third said: "Fair play this is funny."
The Death of Randy Fitzsimmons will be the sixth studio album of The Hives' and is currently set for release on 11 August, 2023.
The Swedish band's tour is on until 14 November according to The Hives' website, and they're travelling from the UK to Sweden, Germany and the US among multiple other countries.
It sounds like The Hives didn't just play the prank at one gig either, one Twitter user commenting: "Looks like they did it at every concert."
So, if you've bought tickets to go see The Hives play, prepare for a prank and to Definitely Maybe not listen to any Oasis.
