The first incarnation of their 2nd & 3rd singles, ‘1995’ (Freak Scene Records) and ‘Now/What Are You’ (Planet Of Noise Records) respectively, came out during 1996. The Hellacopters eventually signed up with ‘White Jazz Records’ for the debut album ‘Supershitty to the Max’, released in June 1996, for which the band was rewarded with the Swedish Grammy.
