ARIA Hall Of Fame Inductees

The following were inducted into the 2007 ARIA Hall Of Fame on 2007-07-18:

Added to these inductees on 2007-10-28 was::

Instead of a traditional acceptance speech, Cave noted that he didn't understand why he was inducted and the Bad Seeds weren't. Due to the membership of Tomas Wylder (Switzerlandmarker), Jim Sclavunos (USAmarker), and James Johnston (UKmarker), the band don't qualify as Australian. In rebellion against this ruling, Cave unofficially inducted Mick Harvey, Warren Ellis, Conway Savage and Martyn P. Casey of the Bad Seeds; as well as Rowland S. Howard and Tracey Pew of the Birthday Party; "by the power vested in [him] by this award". Cave did not name Hugo Race of the Bad Seeds nor Phill Calvert of The Birthday Party, who are Australian, in his unofficial induction. He did, however, close by thanking his mother, wife and sons.

Controversy

The 2007 awards were mired by controversy, after it was revealed by the ABCmarker's Media Watch programme that Channel 10 had used subliminal advertising during the course of the broadcast. Under the Australian Media and Broadcasting rules, such an activity is illegal, as it is a form of mind control. TEN disputes the findng, however their basis for defence was also criticised by Media Watch, as demonstrating an ignorance of the rules.
