Hunters & Collectors
Sometimes bands are unduly held to impossible standards and deemed failures by the industry when they don't live up to them. Hunters And Collectors never had the international success of fellow Aussies INXS and Midnight Oil. Despite that, they have the most-played song in OZ history (Throw Your Arms Around Me) and are used as the theme song to Australian Rules Football (Holy Grail). Not bad for a band whose first couple releases were noisy, moody post-punk that no one thought would ever be Top 40 material.
