You’ve sung their songs, put up their posters, gone to their concerts and worshipped them forbeing the music legends that they are, but have you ever wondered how some of your favouriteAustralian rock bands came to be? Great bands like AC/DC, INXS, Jet, Wolfmother andSilverchair didn’t get to their current rockstar statuses in an instant. Like all great artists, theserock legends started out as humble young musicians with nothing but their talent and their dreamsto propel them forward.

  3. 3. 1.) AC-DCNo certified hard rock fan can truly be a fan without knowing the awesome, hard-hitting and legendary bandthat is AC/DC. This Australian rock band is considered to be one of the pioneering heavy metal bands thattransformed the sound of rock and roll in the 1970’s. They had crowds going wild to such unforgettable songsas “Highway to Hell”, “It’s a Long Way to the Top” and “Back in Black”, songs which continue to capture theadmiration of rock fans everywhere.AC/DC first started with its most constant members, the Young brothers Malcolm and Angus moving to Sydneywith their family in the 1960’s. Malcolm, along with another brother George, were the first to experienceplaying with some local bands before Angus and Malcolm decided to form what is now known as AC/DC.They first played in local nightclubs in special events like New Year’s and other holidays until eventually, aftermany appearances in a nationally-broadcast music television show, they became one of the most popular acts inAustralia and in the world.
