Best Australian Bands


The Contenders: Page 6XW


Over 20 hit singles and countless Top Ten albums. What are they doing down at 101. Should be in the Top 20.

Best pop group Australia has ever produced! They could rock, do country, rnb, ballads and everything else in between. They should be in any Aussie group list that is worthy or credibility!

103The Australian Clowns

An act like this will not be found in coming years, the ultimate in Aussie rock history put together in 1 band, with constant rotating stars.

Keep rocking Aussie Clowns, see you soon, the best!

One of Australias top rock outfits, if you have not seen them, check them out.

108The Choirboys

Can't believe this band is not higher up the list.. Run to Paradise is an Aussie Anthem

The best band ever! I recomend BIG BAD NOISE: is the best album I ever heard.. And midnight sun have also many powerful songs! AUSSIE HARD PUB ROCK and the best!

109Electric Mary

If Airbourne are on the list this band surely deserves a place. Original songs, Huge Melbourne fan base and Very big in Europe.

True to their roots and one of the best live shows you will see a true head rock band the way it used to be.

110The Scientists
111The Triffids

The triffids must surely be in the top 10. Beautiful amazing songs.

This is the best band of Australia. And also the Triffids, the Church, the Go-Betweens and Nick Cave.

Incredible blend of folk, blues and pop. A truly Australian sound and possibly one of the most underrated bands of the modern era

117My Friend the Chocolate Cake
118Gang Gajang

129 behind midnight oil at number one and the hoodoo gurus at number two these should be a decent third place!

Man this guys are cool! Saw them in Brazil earlier 90'!
