It’s a truth universally acknowledged that the golden geese of music were laying 24K cackleberries during one particular decade: the ‘90s, which had it all in bucket(hat)s.

Our great southern land wasn’t resting on its laurels during the ‘90s; rather, it produced some incredibly enduring alt-rock, with the likes of Killing Heidi, Powderfinger, Regurgitator, The Living End, and beloved mainstays-to- this-day Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds participating in a bountiful epoch of truly lasting brilliance.

Check out our fave three tracks below, as well as a playlist of all the greats.
