Top 3 Australian rock bands

It goes without saying that Australia has produced the finest rock music in the last 50 odd years - with the UK tailing around 8th and of course NZ last. But which bands could claim to be in the top 3?

1. AC/DC
2. Cold Chisel
3. Easybeats

Wait.. where were Stevie, Barnesy and Bon Scott born.

I thought it was Stoke?

Aren't 'Men at Work' Australian? You seem to have missed them from your list.

Yeah they are.

And I knew someone would have to bring up Rolf.

As for you Lee, Jason and Kylie are officially yours to contend with now.

I'll happily give Russel Crowe back to NZ as well when it comes to music.

I'm not "from" the North, I was born in Kent. So South, in fact, that any further and I'd have fins. Or speak French.

Saul Hudson, OTOH, is indeed from Stoke-on-Trent where I lived for ten years. He's also a matter of days older than me. Less than a week. Spooky :shock: Info garnered here: http://www.nndb.com/people/514/000024442/

I like Rolf. He's one of my all-time heroes!

As a TV presenter Rolf is OK, but as an recording artist and painter he is definatly erm.. Australian.

His version of "Smoke on the Water" has to be heard to be believed.
