ABBA fans are desperate for the group to reunite, according to a new poll from ticket resale site StubHub.

The Swedish group topped the poll with an impressive 40 per cent, scoring well ahead of runners-up Oasis and One Direction, which landed 28 and 18 per cent of the vote, respectively.

The Swedish pop group, comprising members Agnetha Faltskog, Bjorn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson and Anni-Frid Lyngstad, last released new music in 1982, but have maintained their appeal due to the use of their music in movies including Muriel’s Wedding in 1995, and the recent Mamma Mia! franchise.

Rockers The Verve, ’90s boyband Boyzone – who called it quits last year – and ’80s indie band The Smiths, followed in the ranking, with 14, 13, and 12 per cent respectively.

Destiny’s Child (12 per cent), Crowded House (12 per cent), Sugababes (11 per cent), and No Doubt (11 per cent) rounded out the top 10.
