History

Australian rock, sometimes called OZ Rock is used to describe the various rock and many pop bands and solo artists from Australia. Australia has a rich history of rock music and an appreciation of the roots of various rock genres, usually originating in the United States but also the British Isles, Continental Europe and more recently the musical styles of Africa. Internationally, AC/DC has come to be the most well-known Australian rock band, with more than 63 million sales in the US alone. On 12 September 2006, The Angels were featured on a postage stamp for Australia Post as part of their Australian Rock Posters.

The first day of issue is the day on which a postage stamp, postal card or stamped envelope is put on sale, within the country or territory of the stamp-issuing authority. Sometimes the issue is made from a temporary or permanent foreign or overseas office. There will usually be a first day of issue postmark, frequently a pictorial cancellation, indicating the city and date where the item was first issued, and “first day of issue” is often used to refer to this postmark.
