Best Bands from New Zealand


The Top TenXW

2Split Enz

The quality and quantity of the Finn brothers song writing puts all other NZ bands in the shade. - Tamatu

3Crowded House

So awesome what a band
one of the few bands that could do alternative stuff and still be considered "Lovely" by 40 year old mums everywhere - JasperB

Can't put Shihad ahead of Crowded House, Crowded House have a way more epic history.

You have missed some amazing music if you are not familiar with these bands

The Newcomers

?The Front Lawn

Initially I wasn't going to add this but then I saw Flight Of The Conchords.
This is a duo/trio that deserves just as much recognition although they are actually worlds apart from FOTC
