10 Songs That Make You Proud To Be Australian

They're the cheesy songs that warm your heart when you hear them abroad.

Posted on

These are the songs that turn you into a "proud 'strayan" at the drop of a hat when you're abroad.

Usually, you don't really care. But when they come on somewhere else...

8. AC/DC - "It's A Long Way To The Top If You Wanna Rock N' Roll"

Why it makes you proud: Because you've sung along (more than once) and changed the lyrics to "It's a long way to the shop if you want a sausage roll" or something similar.

Aussie Pride Rating: 8.1/10

9. Icehouse - "Great Southern Land"

Why it makes you proud: I had to learn this song in primary school music class, so maybe it's just a personal thing, but this song makes me think about Australia's natural beauty and is sure to be belted out whilst you're on that Contiki tour.

Aussie Pride Rating: 7.5/10

10. INXS, "Never Tear Us Apart"

Why it makes you proud: As soon as you hear those violins (synth) you're ready to belt out the lyrics. This is a sad song, but it's one that all Australians resonate with, only made sadder with the death of Hutchence.

Aussie Pride Rating: 9.5/10
