107 Psychotic Turnbuckles
108 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

109 Mississippi
110 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!

111 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.

112 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'!

113 The Scientists
114 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.
