    Totally underrated band in my opinion.


    EDIT: Something is telling me I made a midnight oil thread a while ago and it went nowhere.

    Only thoughts I have are; Men At Work breeds with R.E.M. (lol).
    Only one I can remember is beds are burning. I was already getting into metal at that point so it just kind of made me mad.

    There's loads of stuff (the Oils included) that I love now but hated way back coz I was getting into metal, wish i'd had more brains then..........

    Metal is still my priority, however, I can't get enough 80's pop/rock

    Aha, Mr Mister, Cold Chisel, Duran Duran, Nik Kershaw, Underworld, Dire Straits, etc

    Diesel & Dust was Midnight Oil's finest moment.

    Too bad Peter Garrett is now a spineless politician who is making far less impact than when he was a musician.

    When I first heard the new Dimmu Borgir album, I thought that the start of these two songs were quite similar:



    Also, I too entered this thread to point out that the bald guy who dances in an odd fashion is now a politician.

    This band is an old fave of mine. As for the dude's political endeavours, I couldn't care less as far as the music is concerned, for obvious reasons. :)

    normally I would agree with you there, but for me at least, it's a different story when the person in question basically does a complete 180 and goes against all the things the music stood for in the first place. it'd be like if Zach de la Rocha popped up a few years down the track and started up a bunch of sweat shops or something.
