^yeah, I've been a big fan since their self titled album came out. well....I bought their self titled album when it came out and then rediscovered it in 2003 and became a big fan then and bought all their other stuff.

I'm also a fan of the daniel johns paul mac group, the dissociatives. they have some interesting stuff.

I enjoy thirsty merc as well - some very catchy tunes.

The Living End are my favourite. What's on your radio? isn't a bad tune, but its not terribly exciting either.

i am over a lot of bands though - regurgitator, powderfinger, silverchair, grinspoon etc.

Uh...you people are forgetting probably the two best Australian bands: INXS and Midnight Oil. AC/DC has nothing on these two bands.

I would have put crowded house because they were my favourite band when I when I was in year 4 ('96), but the finn brothers are kiwis.

the easy beats are fantastic though. I love the song 'friday on my mind'.

Silverchair are the best Aussie stuff in my opinion.

ACDC are ok but very generic.

I quite like Bernard Fannings solo stuff. Don't laugh at me, Songbird is a lovely song.

Quite a few acoustic artists are coming about now. First there was Pete Murray but now we can see other artists emerging with people like Josh Pyke, Bob Evans and Sarah Blasko to some extent.

Heaps of people hate Bernard Fanning since he wanted a solo career and got a number place on triple J's hottest 100.

The Australian Pink Floyd Show.

Well yeah, they're fantastic. But as far as proper bands go, um, AC/DC are alright I guess, but - they might be from New Zealand, not entirely sure though - Crowded House are brilliant.
