The Church

Rowland S. Howard
The Go-Betweens
The Birthday Party
Radio Birdman
Foetus
Hoodoo Gurus
The Necks

I'd say Australia actually has a pretty damn good great artists/population ratio

>>75133077
AC/DC are one of those bands /mu/ tries to dislike but is such bullshit it doesn't even work ironically

I'm no expert, but aren't most if not all of the members of AC/DC from the UK?

AC/DC fucking sucks
literally the same 3 chords playing in EVERY song
music for braindead rednecks and middle aged boomers

Actually South Africa has some decent punk bands.

>>75133225
Thanks for mentioning Radio Birdman, but let's not forget.........

The Saints
Celibate Rifles
Rose Tattoo
The Easybeats

>>75133307
I think Brian Johnson is Scottish, but I know the Young Brothers are Aussies. Bon Scott was definitely an Aussie. Don't know about the drummer and bassist, though.

Of course not, he hates music that uses such a primitive instrument such as the guitar.

fuck anyone who thought that these shitty gimmick everysongsoundsthesame-core bands were good
>>
>>75133393
The Young brothers were born in Scotland, they were grade-school aged when their family moved to Australia. Brian Johnson isn't Scottish, he was born in the north of England and is of Italian extraction like Tony Iommi.

>>75133069
It's got to be Afghanistan.

And also Bon Scott was born in Scotland, his family moved to Australia when he was a small child. A lot of working class people in the UK moved to Australia in those days looking for a warmer, more healthful climate away from the cold, wet UK.

Excuse me? Die Antwoord is fucking awesome.

Friendly reminder that Lonerism was /mu/core for several years. Perhaps /r/indieheads would better suit your interests

>>75133069
can someone tell me what the difference between death grips, brockhampton and die antwoord is, stylistically?

I like death grips enough, but someone told me i should like die antwoord because i like death grips. couldn't put into words why I don't.
>>
>>75133736
They are all shit, so the person who told you that was probably being a cheeky cunt.
>>
>>75133747
nah people who live with me hardcore love die antwoord. I wish I had a better answer than "I don't like the sound"
>>
>>75133766
Honestly though, it's a very fringe sound.
I think they only became so popular in America because of the hipster movement.
>>
>>75133783
I think it more follows the trend of EDM popularity, "le crazy rapman" (mc ride, yeezus, denzel curry, soundcloud shite), combined with the pretty colors and shit

I'm South African, so I'm allowed to dislike them.

Die antwoord is annoying garbage for people that think theyre into "unique" music.

Don't even care if the rest of their stuff is mediocre, Nonagon Infinity is fucking god tier

Haven't taken much for your pic related in my personal listening. but if you disparage Africa and its southern denizens and haven't yet heard of these cats, check it out. Highly recommended, exceptional sound. Two singers, with singing and lyrics in both English and Rwandan, dependent on a song and vocalist

population of 25mil, huge amounts of resources and all you can produce are some medicore/joke rock bands.

The only case for australia is maybe nick cave, but even then that's barely anything for their size.

Ireland has U2, MBV and the Pogues though. Arguably Sinead O'Connor, though I'm not partial.

Nice implications mate.

I'm a chef at a seafood restaurant, live by myself in a 2500 sq foot house by the ocean, and have a very attractive, interesting, funny (and who has great taste too) SO.

Tame Impala is my 3rd favorite artist of all time.

Being half-Romanian, I can confirm that they belong at the top of that list.

Id say theyre one of the few remaining '''serious''' rock outfits that actually put out worthwhile music. I'd hate for anyone to dismiss music just because it came from 'straya

Are you even fucking trying?

Samla Mammas Manna
Arbete och Fritid
Brainbombs
Refused
Älgarnas Trädgård
Air France
Pärson Sound/International Harvester
Archimedes Badkar
Bathory

Plenty of top-tier stuff
>>
I'd say Balkans, if to pick contemporary music only.
Every country in the world has a decent musical tradition tho.

>>75133393

Ramones fucking suck.
Their songs lack any sort of musical depth, interesting lyrics, technical ability, atmospheric soundscapes or interesting songwriting at all since their songs could have been written by literally anyone and probably sung better by 80% of the world population since joey ramone sounds like he is going to fall asleep as soon as he opens his mouth.
And People still mistake this total lack of talent for honesty and attitude.
>>
>>75133069
At least South Africa had Groinchurn in the 90's.
My vote goes to Israel.
