Dennis Lyxzén (born June 19, 1972 in Umeå, Sweden) is a musician best known as the lead vocalist for Swedish hardcore punk band Refused. He is currently the vocalist in AC4.


Aside from Refused, he has been involved in numerous Swedish bands during his musical career, acting as vocalist, bass player, or guitar player. Since the break-up of Refused, his most notable bands have been The (International) Noise Conspiracy and Invasionen (Previously called The Lost Patrol Band). Lyxzén also runs Ny Våg, a punk record label. He acted as producer of the 2005 self-titled album by Swedish punk band Regulations, which was released on the label.

As a punk rock frontman, Lyxzén's songs are of a counter-culture nature, within line of his socialist political views. Despite his political views, he tends to maintain a level of lyrical variety throughout his various bands. Lyxzén was voted sexiest man in Sweden in 2004 by Elle Magazine,[1][2] and is also vegan.[3]

In March 2010, there were rumours that Lyxzén's old band Refused was getting back together after a 12 years hiatus.[4] This, however, was dismissed by Lyxzén as he and David Sandström were busy with AC4.

In 2011, Lyxzén joined The Bloody Beetroots for their Church of Noise tour as a guest vocalist. Lyxzén is also featured in their newest single, "Church of Noise", and the accompanying music video.

On January 9, 2012 it was announced that Refused would reunite for Coachella, Way Out West Festival and Fun Fun Fun Fest 2012. They went on to headline Groezrock 2012 in Meerhout, Belgium.[5]
