How can we dance when the beds are burning?

As a logical extension of the best American band debate, here are the top five Australian bands.

1. AC/DC
2. Midnight Oil
4. Crowded House
5. The Go-Betweens

Now, the same argument exists here for Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds that exists with Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band on the American list: should they count as a band, or should they be considered more as a musician supported by a band? For this list, we're going with the latter and not including N.C. If he were included, he'd be number two. Or as they say in Australia, "they're the second shrimp on the barbie, mate." Or "they're Crocadile Dundee II, mate." Any which way, it was a tough list to make because of the slim pickin's; I mean, Frente practically gets an honorable mention.

Jason should have his top five Canadian bands soon. I've gotten a taste of it, and like anything else Canadian, it smacks of controversy. And sweet, sweet maple syrup.
