ABBA is one of the most iconic bands in the history of music. The Swedish quartet rose to prominence in the 1970s and became a global sensation
The name ABBA is an acronym of the first letters of the band members' names: Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, and Anni-Frid Lyngstad. It was Benny Andersson who came up with the name, and the band members all agreed that it was a good choice.

Agnetha Fältskog, born in Sweden in 1950, was a singer and songwriter who became famous as a member of the popular Swedish pop group, ABBA. Before joining ABBA, Fältskog was already an established singer in Sweden, having released several successful singles as a solo artist.
In 1972, Fältskog met Bjorn Ulvaeus, a member of the Swedish pop group, The Hootenanny Singers, at a concert. Ulvaeus was impressed with Fältskog's voice and asked her to collaborate with him on a song. The two began working together and soon fell in love.
Benny Andersson and Anni-Frid Lyngstad joined ABBA band in the early 1970s. Benny had previously been a member of the popular Swedish pop group, The Hep Stars, and was a well-known musician in Sweden.
Anni-Frid, on the other hand, was a relative newcomer to the music scene. After being introduced to Benny and the other members of ABBA, Anni-Frid was invited to sing with the group, and the rest is history.
In 1974 they made it to Eurovision. ABBA represented Sweden with their song "Waterloo," which went on to win the contest.
The band considered submitting another song to Eurovision, "Hasta Mañana", but decided on "Waterloo" since it gave equal weight to both vocalists Agnetha and Anni-Frid, while "Hasta Mañana" was sung only by Agnetha
“We had no idea that we could win this [Eurovision]. It came as a big surprise”
Agnetha, interview on Loose Women, 2013
ABBA’s participation in the 1974 Eurovision Song Contest is considered one of the most iconic moments in the competition’s history.
The victory launched their international career and helped to establish Eurovision as a platform for launching successful music careers. Decades later, "Waterloo" remains one of ABBA’s most popular and recognizable songs.
