This long-lost Aussie anthem could be our '80s rallying cry



The Stuck In The '80s blog and podcast, now in its 11th year, has been a great meeting place for those to relive their glory days and the music and movies of our youth. Even in the '80s, we started to feel the nostalgia and perhaps you might see a little bit of your past in Noisework's In My Youth.

Noiseworks was a popular band in Australian in the late '80s. Their second album in 1988 was Touch and their fourth and final single from that album was In My Youth that only made it to No. 44 on the Aussie charts. More of a sing-along song rather than their usual rockers, the video for In My Youth paints a picture of carefree days of recreation, sports, romance, arcades and menial part time jobs that we can all relate to whether we surfed on a beach in Australia or grew up in the states.

Noiseworks broke up in 1992 and from 2000-03, lead singer and New Zealand native Jon Stevens was the lead singer for INXS becoming the first official lead singer INXS had after the death of Michael Hutchence.
