Default Australia vs Rest

How would you say Australian music stacks up against the rest of the world?

( And no, this isn't for a school project so NERRR! )

I think if you look around enough, most countries music scenes are pretty equal (as far as the quality of music produced). Alot of what is percived as "better" has to do with how much publicity an artist or band gets. I know I like some non-US bands, but the only reason I know about them is because they are marketed in the USA. I'm sure your music is just as good as everyone else, but it probably just doesn't get enough exposure (at least in the US). And since most mainstream people don't go looking in other countries for music, it stands to reason that we only hear whats marketed in our particular part of the world.

If it wasnt for Australia nobody would be asking the question "where will we sleep when our beds are burning?"

and even though shes born in england, i doubt anyone would know who olivia newton john is if she didnt come out of australia


ahhh olivia, i am still hopelessly devoted to youuuuu!!!!
