"As soon as you hear it, you’re taken all the way back there."

More Silverchair More Silverchair

Silverchair's Tomorrow will be heard by generations to come thanks to its induction into the The National Film & Sound Archive

According to ABC, the iconic 1994 track was one of 10 recordings selected as part of the Archive's Sounds Of Australia registry for 2020. 

The registry was launched in 2007 and asks the public to nominate the sounds that they think should be added, with the final say going to a panel of expert judges. 

“I remember that song just exploded on Australian radio," said curator Thorsten Kaeding of Tomorrow

"And this is these three teenagers from Newcastle, who just captured that grand era, that sound, the whole vibe of the time."

"Tomorrow really summed that up and still does. As soon as you hear it, you’re taken all the way back there."
