ANZ bands were at the forefront of defining these genres* in the 70s & 80s. Some have become the most enduring & prolific artists, producing continuously through to the present time; some artists have become international icons; some bands transitioned in order to achieve commercial chart success & thereby survive (which meant many people are not aware of their earlier, darker, more experimental music); while many other groups adhered to the punk ethos of remaining independent, DIY & underground.
