Yeah ACDC, INXS, Powderfinger and the likes are great Australian bands..... but none of these acts captured Australian culture and references to our history like Cold Chisel did. In my mind this makes Cold Chisel the greatest Australiana Rock Band of all time! Moss, Prestwich and Walker were the definite brains behind the band to!
what about midnight oil?
