Music: Divinyls
This Australian band is quite popular...in Australia! Outside of the Land Down Under, however, they're one-hit wonders.

That being said, as one-hit-wonders go, theirs is certainly... memorable, to say the least, and still incredibly popular- so all in all, not a bad result.

The band formed in Sydney in 1980, and initially continued until 1996. In 2006, they reformed for three years and recorded some new songs, before finally dissolving permanently in 2009. Its original two members were Christina Amphlett and Mark McEntee, with a huge supporting cast. Their other hits include Love School, Make Out Alright, Science Fiction, Good Die Young and I'm on Your Side.

They had a total of five albums, all of which made it onto the top 50 of the Australian album charts, and three of which were in the top ten.

Singer Chrissy Amphlett died of breast cancer on 21 April 2013. She was 53.

Albums:
  • Desperate (1983)
  • What A Life! (1985)
  • Temperamental (1988)
  • DiVinyls (1991)
  • Underworld (1996)
