sorry so late. i have heard the name before, but not known the music. same with Australian Crawl. Wolfmother and Silverchair were very popular. Wolfmother's single was even featured in a commercial a few years ago (can't remember for what) cel phone ?

not sure when i heard the name Rose Tatto, but i think it was before GNR, if that's what you mean by Gunners (Guns N Roses). it was probably known here beforehand and GNR picked it up as an underground song they used to play back in the day.

local (North Carolina) heavyweights Nantucket did AC/DC's "Long Way To The Top" before AC/DC themselves did - i THINK. they toured together a lot along with Mother's Finest (the mightiest band you've never heard of). it's still my favorite version.
