Hurriganes is a Finnish rock band that was formed in the early 1970s. They were very popular in Finland in the 1970s and early 1980s; they were also a popular live act in Sweden during this time. Their classic line-up consisted of Remu Aaltonen, Albert Järvinen and Cisse Häkkinen. What seems like a misspelling in the name ("Hurriganes" with a "g") is intentional. Their style of music is very much of a nostalgic, pre-Beatles, roots rock'n'roll orientation. During their "classic" period, the band's output consisted largely of revved-up cover versions of well-known 1950s rock'n'roll songs in addition to their own original material. In this sense, Hurriganes can be viewed as Finland's answer to British pub rock performers of the 1970s like Dave Edmunds and Dr. Feelgood.

Roadrunner is an album released by the Finnish rock band Hurriganes in 1974. It is considered one of the most influential albums in Finnish rock music history. It was the best selling Finnish album in years 1974-1985 and up to date it has been sold over 170 000 copies in Finland. The album was recorded in Stockholm, Sweden at Marcus Music-studios. Album cover features the band crew sitting on a backseat of a Cadillac in Ruskeasuo, Helsinki. The album cover has been chosen many times as the best album cover in Finland.

Hurriganes was a hugely popular Finnish rock & roll band formed in 1971 by Remu Aaltonen (vocals, drums), Cisse Häkkinen (bass, vocals), and Ile Kallio (guitar). Their music was a belated take on classic rock & roll, and the band was equally adept at writing their own modern classics as they were covering supercharged versions of songs by Fats Domino, Bo Diddley, or the J. Geils Band. Before recording their first album, 1973's Rock and Roll All Night Long, Ile Kallio had left the band and Albert Järvinen had taken over the reins in what is now considered the "classic" lineup.

Hurriganes revitalized the Finnish rock music scene, particularly with their second album, 1974's Roadrunner. The album, named after the Bo Diddley song, demolished the charts and is not only considered one of the best classic rock & roll albums in Finland, but it was also the best-selling album in its native land from 1974 to 1985. The single release of the song they added as a lark to the album when it came up too short, "Get On," has been named numerous times as the finest single rock & roll song released in Finland by both the public and the press. Järvinen took the intro from Chuck Berry's "Johnny B. Goode" and added a ferocious lead throughout the three-and-a-half-minute song, Aaltonen punched it up with a revved-up beat and nonsense lyrics that touched upon most of the rock & roll clichés of the past, and Häkkinen solidified the mixture with his sturdy basslines.

Hurriganes gained momentum despite the slight hangover that was 1975's Crazy Days by playing fierce concerts throughout Scandinavia. Their attempts at making it in England were unsuccessful, though "Get On" had won on the popular BBC radio show European Pop Jury. 1976's Hot Wheels, Tsugu Way from 1977, and other albums of the period were all popular, but none captured the magic of Roadrunner. Järvinen was fired for a few years because of drinking and attitude problems, though none of the members was by any means without their personal demons.

10/80 started the new decade with a roaring success. Their finest album in ages, the lineup also featured Jim Pembroke of Wigwam, and the band charted with one of their best pop tunes, "Bourbon Street." The band was having a comeback success without ever having left, and in 1981 they sold over a quarter of a million albums in Scandinavia. A few more albums appeared after this, before the band called it quits after 1984's Hurrygames. They attempted a brief comeback in 1988 with a live album to some success, but after cashing the check, the members quickly returned to their separate careers. Järvinen recorded with Sleepy Sleepers, a comic rock band which would eventually take on the role of Leningrad Cowboys and released a fine solo album, Brain Damage – or Still Alive?, in 1989. Cisse Häkkinen died in 1990, and Albert Järvinen followed soon after in 1991. Remu performed his old songs under the name Remu Plays Hurriganes and In the Spirit of Hurriganes in the mid-'90s, before he formed a new version of the group in 1998. He continued with the new band to the new millennium, and for two years Jukka Orma of Sielun Veljet fame was the guitarist for the band. In 2007 a biographical film, Ganes, was released to great success in Finland.
