Marc Bolan and T Rex once told us to Get it On, Bang a Gong.
Welcome to Bang a Gong‘s videos and song info in celebration of the radio hits of the ’60s and ’70s in Australia. Our selections are based on the Kent charts and Kent Music Report and the Go-Set National Top 40, with many of them from 1966 to 1974 – more about that period HERE.
This is a continually evolving site with new songs added frequently. We have only just scratched the surface so keep checking back. You can also Like our Facebook page to ensure you don’t miss any.
