    (Considering I wrote this poll) I like them all, but I can't go past the Living End, especially their First Album (Prisoner of Society) and their last album (State of Emergency)

    Other - It's difficult. I like Wolfmother and AC/DC, but seeing as metal is a subgene of rock, sort of, I've got to choose between The Berzerker and The Amenta, of which The Berzerker wins :p

    I'm going to have to go Midnight Oil. I loves me the Oils, but Acca Dacca and The Living End are also great, great bands.

    I believe AC/DC will run away with this one.

    I didn't know about half of the listed bands that they are from Australia. :eek:

    Love Crowded House (arent's from New Zealeand,though?) but Midnight Oil rules. Top 5 favorite Bands ever. Great live, too.

    Well, Finn and Hester were from New Zealand, but they were based in Australia and Seymour was an Australian so it's sort of half and half.

    And if you know one thing about Australians, we'll claim anything good from New Zealand - and still make sheep jokes.

    AC/DC automatically loses because all their songs are based on the same three power chords. [face_plain]

    There's no better way to spend a warm summer's eve than with a few Foster's oil cans and Diesel and Dust blaring on the stereo.
