So, I take it everybody who contributed to this list comes from Frankston?

"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

OK, I can see the over abundance of Ac/Dc being an Aussie list, but Thunderstruck as #1? Over everything else AC/DC has done?
