Powderfinger ‘Internationalist’ Tops Double J Best Australian Albums of the 90s List

Powderfinger ‘Internationalist’ has been named the top Australian album of the 90s for Double J.

The list is obviously designed around the Double J audience ignoring major 90s releases such as Jimmy Barnes ‘Two Fires’, John Farnham’s ‘Chain Reaction’, Daryl Braithwaite’s ‘Rise’, Diesel ‘Hepfidelity’, Baby Animals self-titled album, Wendy Matthews ‘Lily’, The Badloves ‘Get On Road’ or Savage Garden ‘Savage Garden’. We can leave that job to GoldFM or Triple M to fill in that gap.

Silverchair ‘Frogstomp’ from 1995 is the only album in this list that was actually a biggest selling Australian album of its year. Powderfinger’s ‘Internationalist’ actually came in at Number 66 on the ARIA End of Year Chart for 1998.
