Genres[edit]

The Genres section in the box is ridiculosly long. I would say Pop / Rock, and new wave is enough.Mortyman (talk) 12:58, 19 July 2008 (UTC)

I notice it's now been changed to just Synthpop (New wave and Alternative rock having been removed). I think we could add Pop and Rock without controversy. I think anyone who's heard their Analogue album will agree that synthpop does not adequately define a-ha's music.Contains Mild Peril (talk) 10:28, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

New wave? Alternative rock? I would say A-ha plays mainstream pop/rock,not even a little bit alternative. --84.210.64.93 (talk) 23:16, 14 March 2015 (UTC)

1991 show at the Maracanã stadium[edit]

This show was part of the Rock in Rio II festival and therefore is inacurate to say that a-ha alone got an audience of 198,000. --Pinnecco (talk) 12:31, 22 July 2013 (UTC)

Yes, but the amount of audience reached it's peek during a-ha's performance. a-ha still played for the largest paying crowd. This is also a fact that the Guinnes Book of records aknowledge at the time. The other artists played for a far smaller audience. Mortyman (talk) 10:46, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

Formerly known as ?[edit]

I remember reading somewhere back in the eighties they were originally called Spider Empire — Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.46.144.230 (talk) 14:43, 14 June 2014 (UTC)

External links modified[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just added archive links to 2 external links on A-ha. Please take a moment to review my edit. You may add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it, if I keep adding bad data, but formatting bugs should be reported instead. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether, but should be used as a last resort. I made the following changes:

When you have finished reviewing my changes, please set the checked parameter below to true or failed to let others know (documentation at {{Sourcecheck}}).
