OK Im just wondering how many bands where huge in their own country but never really cought on anywhere else, and also any bands that couldn't make it in their home country, cause I cant think of many!
though "Sick Puppies" havent really cought on in OZ but from what I hear they are pretty big in the US

Dude I got these strings the other day that couldn't be tuned to higher than 4 octaves below middle C then I realized that they were shoelaces and they weren't making any sound at all.

The Living End ftw.

But they need to go back to their older styles, this new stuff has a severe lack of lead guitar.

some people here have living end cd's?

well living end has my cd.

when they came to coffs, my band went in and saw them (dad was doing the pa for their support) and we all got to meet chris andy and scott and give them our cd.

weather they listened to it or not is a different matter.

[quote="'Tommy[fin"]']It's weird that some of the most white trashiest metal bands from Finland eg. Korpiklaani are quite well known abroad.
That's because Korpiklaani are awesome.

The Libertines. I've only encountered two people outside my immediate group of friends who listen to them. Pete Doherty is known here more for being Kate Moss's boyfriend than a musician.
Listen to mah discs.



And coming soon, THE CLEVER DEVILS VS. THE BLONDES.

Vote for me in the
