Yes, fantastic Aussie band.

Will they be? Probably not. Should they be? Absolutely!!!

Seriously hard rocking band from day one, fantastic live act, current/topical/political and evironmental 15-20 years before anyone else. This band really belongs in the hall...

Without a doubt should be in, and Peter Garret should get special recognition for being a musician smart enough to turn his political rhetoric into political action.

Well "Beds are Burning" is still a great song more than two decades after it came out. That song is one of favorite rock classics

I guess that's what happens when you don't pay the rent.

All silliness on this page aside, Midnight Oil will probably fall short. I know the Hall doesn't have any sort of "queue" on nationalities but if any other Australian band is to join AC/DC it'll probably be INXS. However, Midnight Oil might have a better shot than a band like Men At Work who are mostly remembered today for "Down Under." Then again, I think most people might only remember Midnight Oil for "Beds Are Burning"

For 25 years this band consistently wrote, recorded, and performed magnificent pop/rock songs. They deservedly were inducted into Australia's rock hall, and they deserve induction in ours. I don't think I am exaggerating when I say that they were among the top 50 genuine rock bands of all time. In my opinion, they are in the top ten.
