Top 10 Best Australian Songs


The Top Ten

1 Back in Black - AC/DC

Great song but not why I'm commenting... A-Ha is from Norway, I don't even know why you would think their Aussie

2 Beds are Burning - Midnight Oil
3 Khe Sanh - Cold Chisel
4 Thunderstruck - AC/DC
5 Prisoner of Society - The Living End
6 Under the Milky Way - The Church
7 Down Under - Men at Work
8 The Vanishing Race - Air Supply
9 Need You Tonight - Inxs

I understand 12. INXS are too good to have just one great song for this list, but great pick. also, pretty vegas? are my eyes deceiving me?

10 Jessie's Girl - Rick Springfield

The Contenders

11 Big Gun - AC/DC
12 Are You Gonna Be My Girl - Jet
13 Pretty Vegas - Inxs
14 The Boys Light Up - Australian Crawl
15 Battle Scars - Lupe Fiasco & Guy Sebastian
16 You're the Voice - John Farnham

Sorry I meant for this compelling tune not Great Southern Land by the obscure band of Icehouse!

That why Farnham is the voice

17 I Touch Myself - Divinyls
18 Get Free - The Vines
19 It's a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock 'n' Roll) - AC/DC

It's my favourite song by my favourite Australian band. And unlike "Take On Me", It's actually by an Australian band.

20 Black Betty - Spiderbait
21 Eagle Rock - Daddy Cool
22 Never Tear Us Apart - INXS

My favourite of all INXS classics and unforgettably the band's most memorable.

23 Great Southern Land - Icehouse

How come nobody has ever heard of John Farnham and his one and only famous single! They ought to be ashamed of not hearing the melody of its credo.

24 Can't Get You Out of My Head - Kylie Minogue

Somebody is guilty of not recognising the credibility of Kylie Minogue. It's one of her all time hits on the dance floor ahead of Locomotion!

25 The Loco-Motion - Kylie Minogue
26 Better - The Screaming Jets

Classic Aussie rock song - great intro and really catchy for the rest of the song as well! - petrucci75hammet

28 Rock N Roll Outlaw - Rose Tattoo
