    All the bands mentioned are great.
    Don`t forget The Angles and The Mentals.

    Saw The Mentals at a footy club one night and the place was packed age group from 15-50 and everybody dancing and singing.

    my vote would have to go to AC/DC, or maybe Karnivool. the cat empire is also pretty great, i play trumpet (i know, right? :rockon:) and their sh1t is pretty fun to play

    AC/DC are the greatest aussie band ever. been playing strong since the 70s, still put one of the best live performances on ive ever seen even though they are all over 60 years old. and everybody knows who acdc is, ive asked people about inxs and most people dont even know who they are, shocking if you ask me cos they were a sick band, either way we are aussies and we make sick tunes! and i disagree with a comment i seen before that brian johnson is better than bon scott, no way bons the man!

    not a band but does anyone listen to opiuo on here? kids off the hook! glitch hop mixed with psytrance it seems, either way im frothing his tunes, still yet to hear with bass but my guess is it would blow minds, and maybe subwoofers haha

    Savage Garden for me. Back in the day I loved their music, but after the split I never got into Darren's solo stuff. I still listen to some of the old hits from time to time.

    +1 for Karnivool saw them last year for my 30th. Wish I saw Cog before they were no more so many good Aussie bands I dont think anyones mentioned Spiderbait yet.

    As for the OPs point of most liked internationally id have to go with Acca Dacca too.
