^ yeah i see this... this is basically a band to band thread pretty much... cos i know britain and the US completely ****s australia over in the overall... i just wanted peoples views on australian bands in comparison to other bands from other countries rather than a total overview...

yeah... i can agree with that... like i said, im more interested in how you think bands compare...

for example: AC/DC v The Who

or: Midnight Oil v The Clash

both in terms of music they created and influence they had....

Sure the UK and the US are the two music superpowers in the world, but I think Australia has done pretty well for themselves considering their a remote island continent that's pretty far removed from both the US and Brittain. Can anyone name a country doesn't directly border the US or Brittain that has had anywhere near the prolific musical output that Australia has?
