They were looked upon as a group for teenage girls, but in reality they were a very creative band" U2 "Take On Me is possibly the best pure pop single of all time" Keane "a-ha…they’re fucking great" Robbie Williams a-ha’s career stats are impressive, over 30 million records sold, 13 top ten singles in the UK and 409 concerts before uncounted millions in 31 countries.
