This stamp series gives recognition of Australian music’s role in our culture. From the hard rock to the pure pop, the ten hit songs in Rock Australia highlight the diversity of the Australian contemporary music scene. Some are seriously personal, and others just madcap fun. All songs featured on this minisheet were great hits of their day that found their way into the hearts and lives of the music-loving Australian public. Each of the stamps says something about us and the way our culture lives, They told the rest of the world this is what popular culture sounds like, and it has an Australian accent.
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.
