Best Bands from New Zealand
The Top Ten
They're an amazing band, great live!
The quality and quantity of the Finn brothers song writing puts all other NZ bands in the shade. - Tamatu
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
This band produced timeless song after timeless song that stand the test of time. - crowdiegal
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
Can't believe this needed to be added, musical gold for that time
Awesome band, check out 'Urban Getaway', makes me feel good whenever I hear it.
Such a great comedic duo. they even got their own Tv show!
Yeah would be better if the T.V. show went past two seasons
Dude there new single is great underground YEAAA
The greatest NZ artists of all time. Absolutely cracked it, cracked the New Zealand summer, cracked being a kiwi. To sell out 50,000. No other New Zealander could get close. I was there and I have never felt anything like that before. WOW.
They just better than every other nz bands
The only NZ band I know and I live there
Great band by the way
16th place? really? these guys are so massively underrated.
Some Songs Are Awesome
! How is Blam Blam Blam, DD Smash, The Mutton Birds and The Swingers not on here (just to name a few)?!
FYI: My Top 5 would be
1) Crowded House (Though technically Australian)
2) Split Enz (Esp the first two albums)
3) The Mutton Birds
4) Die! Die! Die!
5) The Swingers OR Schnell Fenster
- not biased(! ) Lol
The band whih brought you the cracking song 'the fuzz' and they don't even get on the top 10. Give me a break.
Good Band. Check them out.
Love the style of this band
Very accomplished musicians
Wishing you the best from Seattle!
How is this not on here?!... But evermore is?
Best Noise Pop Band, best of anything recent
How is this not there already?!
Nature is rated as the best kiwi song ever, just wanted to put these guys on here although a lot of their songs were covers
Counting The Beat was a legendary album
Sound of trees and ok alright a huh oh yeah
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
