Their eventual debut album, ''Frogstomp,'' was recorded in a mere nine days, and released in March of 1995 when the band were still in high school, featuring a newly recorded "Tomorrow" and the other singles "Pure Massacre" and "Isreal's Son." The album not only topped the charts in Australia and New Zealand, but hit the top 10 in America which hadn't happened for an Aussie band since Music/INXS. They returned in 1997 for ''Freakshow,'' lead by the anthemic single "Freak." ''Freakshow'' gave them another #1 at home, as did their third album released in March of 1999, ''Neon Ballroom. Neon Ballroom'' is regarded as a GrowingTheBeard point by some fans, as the band stretched out their alt-rock sound and added some electronic elements.

* ShoutOut: The band name is a [[TheChroniclesOfNarnia Narnia]] reference, to - you guessed it - ''TheSilverChair'' specifically. Early on, they claimed it had something to do with hastily writing down the titles of Music/{{Nirvana}}'s "Sliver" and You Am I's "Berlin Chair" as "Silver Chair", but later they confirmed that it came from the novel. It's unknown as to why they had made the other story up in the first place, but perhaps they just thought the real origin of their name didn't seem to mesh with their PostGrunge sound at the time.

* GreatestHitsAlbum: ''Greatest Hits Volume 1'', featuring almost all of the singles from the first three albums, plus a collection of B-Sides. Disavowed by the band, as it was released without their consent once their contract with Sony ended.

'''Silverchair''' is an Australian alternative rock band comprised of lead singer/guitarist Daniel Johns, Bass guitarist Chris Joannou, and drummer Ben Gillies. They have been highly successful, winning a record 20 [=ARIAs=] (Australian Record Industry Awards). The band first gained notoriety when one of their first songs "Tomorrow", won a local music competition run by television network Creator/{{SBS}} in 1994. In 2003 the band went on [[SeriesHiatus hiatus]], members using the break to record on side projects The Dissociatives, The Mess Hall, and Tambalane. The Wave Aid concerts of 2005 saw the band reunite, and album ''Young Modern'' was released in 2007. Silverchair joined up with fellow Australian rockers Powderfinger to play the ''Across the Great Divide'' tour across Australia and New Zealand, which was to increase awareness of the efforts of Reconcilation Australia to reduce the 17-year gap in life expectancy between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.

They broke up in 2011, although it was officially called an "indefinite hibernation".

** They were known as Innocent Criminals until just before they entered (and won) a demo contest run by the TV show ''Nomad''. When they admitted they'd made up the other origin story, one possible explanation that emerged as to why they lied was that one of the ''Nomad'' producers assigned them the name because of Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals and they didn't want people to know that a TV producer came up with it.

* {{Instrumentals}}: "Madman". They actually did record a version with lyrics, which appeared as one of the bonus tracks on ''[[GreatestHitsAlbum The Best Of, Vol. One]]'', but it was first released as an instrumental on ''Frogstomp'' - the version with lyrics turns out to be an OdeToSobriety.

The ''Frogstomp'' version isn't quite instrumental, if [[Main/MetalScream "Oooh!"]] and a TitleDrop at the very last two seconds of the song qualify as lyrics.
