Swedish House Mafia have been forced to explain a series of NSFW posts recently made on their official Facebook page.
The dance trio split in 2013 but recently sparked rumours of a possible reunion after changing their Facebook header photo earlier this week.
However, a series of explicit links were subsequently posted to the page on Wednesday (December 9), including semi-pornographic images of pop star Miley Cyrus, some of which were screengrabbed by fans.

With the posts now deleted, the group released a statement via Twitter claiming that their account had been hacked. “Someone must have been bored,” the band wrote.
No further comment has been made about who may have been responsible for the hack or whether it has any relation to the reunion rumours.
Swedish House Mafia announced their split in 2012 by thanking fans and saying: “We came, we raved, we loved”.
Speaking in the aftermath of their split, DJ Steve Angello told Rolling Stone: “We just decided that we reached a point where we don’t know what the next move would be. We always like the challenge. And we don’t like to repeat ourselves. We just felt like it was time.”
