ABBA is the name of a Swedish pop/dance group active from 1972 until 1982. The quartet was formed through the friendship of Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus and their respective girlfriends Anni-Frid Lyngstad and Agnetha Fältskog, and together they topped charts worldwide from the mid-1970s to the early 1980s. The band members were at one time married to each other. The name "ABBA" is an acronym formed from the first letters of each group member's given name.
ABBA enjoyed immense international popularity employing catchy song hooks, simple lyrics, and a Wall of Sound achieved by overdubbing the women's voices in multiple harmonies. As their popularity grew, they were sought after to tour Europe, Australia, and North America, where they met criticism for their uneven live performances, although they continued to release studio albums to great commercial success. At the height of their popularity, however, both marriages of the band members failed, and the relationship changes were reflected in their music, as they produced more thoughtful lyrics with different compositions. They remain a fixture of radio playlists and have sold more than 370 million records.ABBA was also the first pop group from mainland Europe to enjoy consistent success in the charts of the English-speaking world, mainly the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand.
