A grungy garage band from Australia, performing and supporting artists before coming into their own with the release of Highly Evolved in 2002. This achieved some measure of mainstream success with their song 'Get Free'.
A few MTV appearances later, they disappeared from the mainstream, much to the relief of some of their fans who were NOT 14 year old girls just jumping in on the new rock group.
A second album, Winning Days, followed in 2004. This achieved very limited sales, and later in the same year Craig Nicholls, the frontman, assaulted a photographer. This caused the band's public image to collapse (obviously the public feels that rock stars should be polite and well-mannered). Nicholls was later diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome, a form of Autism.
Despite now being virtually docile, the band's musical talent cannot be denied.
Winning Days is actually an excellent album.
The Best Rock Band in all Rock History.

A cool mix of grunge and 60's revival. The bands name came from the name of Craig Nicholls dads band from the 60's by the name the vynes. Awesome band with awesome songs like winning days, and vision valley, and....ah hell i dont even need to name them.

A great Austrailian rock band with a pot head for a lead singer.
An Australian Band, who's fast rise to fame, due to them being over-hyped as the 'Next Nirvana
' by the stupidest magazine ever NME
led to their rapid decline in fame, and the unfounded comparation to Kurt resulted to much distrought and animosity by Vines and Nirvana fans alike.
Lead singer Craig Nicholls is known for having the autism
spectrum disorder Apsperger's Syndrome
which explains his being a prat.
Everyone says The Vines sound like Nirvana, when although they are only mildly influenced (as most bands are) by them. The lyrics and vocals sound nothing alike except for their major Hit 'Get Free' which is similar in structure to 'Negative Creep'. I lizen to da Vines becoz NME tells me wot to do and now NME tells me 2 hate dem so i do, but now coz craggles hav asperger NME want me to write crag letter 4 support even do NME told me to hate dem. NME iz god. it tellz me what i shood hate and like coz i hav no opinion. 111!!!
