List Criteria: Vote for the best Australian bands and musical groups!

Who are the best Australian bands? The best bands from Australia you'll find on this list come from a variety of different musical genres, including rock, pop, metal, electronic, jam, punk, and acoustic. Sometimes known as "Oz Rock, " rock n' roll has prevailed in Australia for the past 50 years.

Three distinct types of rock made their way to the outback between 1955 - 1975. The first wave in the '50s was influenced by both American and British music. Most of the tunes in this era were fairly clean-cut acts, and often appeared on Bandstand. However, the Beatles swooped in shortly after and changed everything. With them came other pop acts, such as The BeeGees and The Easybeats. The third wave occurred in the early '70s, and influenced a new style of rock called "pub rock." The most famous pub rock band to come out of this decade was of course, AC/DC.
