Editors' Notes Rock anthems were forged in the furnace of Aussie pubs in the '70s and '80s, born of sweat, beer and rowdy audiences. AC/DC triumphed with brute force and larrikin showmanship, melding Angus Young's blistering riffs with Bon Scott's snaggle-toothed snarl. Cold Chisel and Midnight Oil were no less incendiary, the former marrying eloquent songwriting to Jimmy Barnes' lethal howl, while the latter had both a political outlook and a mammoth rock attack. This was a broad church with big hooks—witness the Sunnyboys' perfect distillation of '60s jangle and '70s power-pop, or the lioness growl and powerful sexuality of Chrissy Amphlett in Divinyls.
