I'm Eighteen

Alice Cooper

Alice Cooper's first Top 40 (and breakthrough) single released in 1970!! Legend has it that Joey Ramone was so inspired, he used the chords of this song to write his first (no doubt faster!) Ramones song.

Hermetico

Balkan Beat Box

Described in some quarters as an Israeli American electronica-world fusion band (whatever that means), these guys know how to party. This song was featured on their second album Nu Med. But if you didn't know that, you might recognise it from Jason Derulo's  2013 release 'Talk Dirty' (which sampled it).

Little Monster

Royal Blood

One of the killer tracks (frankly, they were all killer) from their first EP, 2014's 'Out Of The Black'. This show was filmed in a small club as part of a promo tour in support of their first album.

Breathe Me

Sia

Ever seen the HBO series 'Six Feet Under'? If you watched right through to the very last episode (one of the all time great finales), you'll recognise this song as the soundtrack to those last devastating minutes. We think it's hands down the best Sia song ever.

Sweet Child O' Mine

Slash (feat. Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators)

This one genuinely gets people asking themselves whether Myles Kennedy actually sings this better than Axl Rose. You be the judge!

Under The Milky Way

The Church

Not just a great Church song (of which there are many), and not just one of the great Australian songs of all time, but a damn fine song full stop. It somehow never gets old - it even featured in the soundtrack to 'Donnie Darko'.

She's Gone

Hall & Oates

This one takes you straight back to the '80s! The show features hit after hit (and this was a big one) - the guys seem timeless (but maybe, just maybe, they should have left the sax at home).

Bohemian Like You

The Dandy Warhols

We still can't quite work out just which Rolling Stones song this sounds like, but no matter - it's a cracker and you can't help but get swept up by it

Blues Hand Me Down

Vintage Trouble

You just gotta see these guys! Fronted by Ty Taylor, it's hard to recall a more energetic performance - and a knockout song to go with it. A track from their 2011 debut 'The Bomb Shelter Sessions'

Over And Over

Hot Chip

Who doesn't love this track? If you don't know it, you should! In 2011, NME ranked it no. 7 in their Top 150 tracks of the previous 15 years. Or if you're a Pitchfork kinda person, they had it at No 45 in their end of decade list in 2009. To quote the band's own lyrics 'Laid back? We'll give you laid back!'
