Kent is a Swedish Rock/Pop band that formed in Eskilstuna, Sweden.
The band has had numerous Swedish radio hits since the breakthrough single "Kräm (så nära får ingen gå)", from their second studio album. They are the most popular rock group in Sweden, but are more or less unknown outside Scandinavia. Kent briefly attempted an international career with English versions of the albums Isola and Hagnesta Hill and an accompanying American tour for the former, but they gave up after failing to achieve the breakthrough they had hoped for.
Kent has released eleven studio albums, sold over three million records and has won 20 Swedish Grammy Awards.
