The band's first hit, People Need Love, reached the 17th spot on the charts back in the early seventies when they were still known as Björn & Benny, Agnetha & Anni-Frid.

They change their name to ABBA in 1973, taken from the initials of the four members, and made their breakthrough the following year with the release of Waterloo.

Two years later, Mama Mia reached the number one spot in the UK, Australia, and Germany, while SOS made it the 10th place on the Record World Top 100.

By the early eighties, they had reach superstardom and released their compilation The Very Best of ABBA. The band dissolved in 1982.
