    While they are not quite as good as ACDC in my opinion, i quite like the sound of Airbourne

    AC/DC = Good
    Airbourne = Good
    INXS = average

    Cold Chisel = Best Aussie band EVER!!!

    yeah i love INXS and can't wait for the tv show, Icehouse are good, Screaming Jets are solid and quite good live. But Chisel was the best live show I've ever been to/seen,

    + how can you not crank Khe sanh, Flame trees, When the war is over and Bow river when they are on the radio/ipod?!?!

    This thread actually all started from watching black sails and the guy in that who plays micheal hutchence in that aussie show. whilst watching that i was getting drunk then i decided to listen to some inxs and realised how many worldwide hit songs they had and now we're here..

    Seems in my drunken stupor i did forget about AC/DC. I was drunk and i was wrong. in terms or worldwide success AC/DC is king but they got lucky with English born Brian Johnson. Unlike INXS they found a frontman that could replace bon scott and to the uninformed is better than scott and who as far as they know never existed. But i love AC/DC don't know how i forgot about them maybe i was drunk?

    As much as i love chisel (in fact not long after i wrote that i was listening to flame trees) they have not had the international success that the other 2 have. Doesn't mean they arent good but obviously my drunken typing failed to get my point across. (guess i shouldn't mention 2 of the founding members weren't even born in australia:p )

    I was thinking more of international success greatness than who's best because as shown here everyone has their own opinion and if you didn't pick one of the 3 i mentioned you're completely wrong :p

    And drawnnite something for kate? you got to be ####ing kidding me !!

    Let the flaming begin

    On a more serious note powderfinger have to be up there, especially good was their early slightly grungy stuff.

    Silverchair were awesome up until he went and did that crap with Paul Mac. Friggin nasty after that, I guess coupling veganism with drugs is a really bad thing
