Aussie Rock Show
Our nation has a rich history of rock music and an appreciation of the roots of various rock genres, usually originating in the United States or Britain.
Australian rock music has also contributed to the development of a wide range of genres, as well as having its own unique Australiana sound with pub rock and its indigenous music. After 1975 Australian rock began to diversify including local contributors to punk and indie rock styles. By the 1980s baby boomer acts were prominent, which included John Farnham, whose album, Whispering Jack (October 1986) peaked at number one on the Australian charts for 25 weeks and was certified 24x platinum indicating shipment of over 1.68 million copies – the highest by any Australian artist. Also in that decade, indigenous rock groups, Yothu Yindi and Warumpi Band, achieved wider recognition.
