Best Australian Bands


The Contenders: Page 6

101 The Black Sorrows

I liked some of their songs of 1994

One of the most versatile bands in the world, they can play almost any style. Joe Camilleri is a soulful genius. Great band is an understatement.

102 The Wild Cherries

Birth of Aussie garage music. They played it loud.

103 Mortification Mortification Mortification is an Australian Christian extreme metal band which was formed in 1987 as a heavy metal group, Lightforce, by mainstay Steve Rowe on bass guitar and vocals.
104 Erica Owns The Sky
105 Mississippi

Their album is brilliant. Should be in australias top 100. Kings of the world is a top 10 of all time single.

106 Ratcat
107 The 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.

108 The 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.

#113? Erm... right. They certainly do belong in the Top Ten at least!

Best ever Australian band, together with the Go-betweens

110 Psychotic Turnbuckles
111 Busby Marou

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

112 The 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!

113 Electric 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.

114 Gang 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'!
