Know any good swedish bands that sing in swedish?
I like music like Sabaton (Power/Heavy Metal) and styles like Avenged Sevenfold (Hard Rock) and Rise Against (Punk Rock, Hard Rock)
I have no problem with bands such as The Sounds https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=052YPfZv_Mw but I just want bands that DO sing in swedish (only sabaton from the ones I said is swedish and sings in swedish)
So yeah, Hard Rock, Power/Heavy Metal, Punk Rock and pop themed bands (not like JB and such) but more like The Sounds.
NOTE: I want both just good bands from the genres I said and also just good songs that are easy to pick up and follow.
Ebba Grön (1977-1983), the most famous of all Swedish punk bands, might be a good start:
- Staten & kapitalet: fantastic live video / studio version / lyrics
- 800 grader / lyrics
- We're only in it for the drugs / lyrics

Thåström has been a solo artist since the late 90s and has made some great albums. Great voice, great lyricist. "Skebokvarnsv. 209" is largely acoustic and should be easier to follow than some of the others:
Someone on a forum I follow posted this song a while ago, and listening to it was the first time I realized "wait, I understood some of those words!" Not sure if it's necessarily in the genres you mentioned, but the lyrics seem easy enough to follow at least:
