Over the years, Australia has produced a fair share of excellent bands. As space does not allow to go right back to the beginning of time, some of the great bands before the 1980s may be left out. Beginning with the 1980s, some of the most popular Australian bands, many of which are still going strong today, include:
  • AC/DC
  • Little River Band
  • INXS
  • Midnight Oil
  • Crowded House
  • Real Life
  • Divinyls
  • Big Pig
  • Moving Pictures
Other bands included veteran baby boomer acts such as:
  • The Party Boys
  • Models
  • Sunny Boys
  • Machinations
  • Ward 13
  • The Black Sorrows
  • The Zorros
    During the 1990s, bands such as the following dominated the scene:
  • Boxcar
  • Archie Roach's Took The Children Away
  • Necrotomy
  • Machine Translations
  • Machine Gun Fellatio
  • Def FX
  • Gerling
  • Noise Addict
  • Peril and The Cruel Sea
In addition, there were:
  • The Baby Animals
  • Triple J
  • Frente!
  • The Waifs
  • Falling Joys
  • Magic Dirt
  • Tumbleweed
  • The Superjesus
  • Regurgitator
  • Powderfinger
Other bands ot make their mark were;
  • Screamfeeder
  • The Sallyanne Hatesquad
  • Custard
  • Something for Kate
  • The Living End
  • The Blackeyed Susans
  • Crow
  • Silverchair
The alternative rock scene sprouted bands such as
  • Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds
  • The Screaming Jets
  • Killing Heidi
Roots music continued to have a particularly strong appeal thanks to bands like
  • Bondi Cigars
  • Psycho Zydeco
  • Raja Jam
Australia has a long history of producing exceptionally good bands and artists. One can only hope that they will continue to keep up the good work and provide such a wide range of talented musicians a they have done over the last few decades.
