Superstars from Down Under have flown up the charts on countless occasions, bringing a savvy mix of pop and rock smashes to American audiences. In the past several decades, Aussie acts have earned a compelling portfolio of No. 1 songs and albums and established several chart records as they've taken the U.S. (and the world) by storm.

The chart’s rankings are based on actual performance on the weekly Billboard Hot 100, from the chart’s inception in August of 1958 through the Dec. 24, 2016, ranking. Songs are ranked based on an inverse point system, with weeks at No. 1 earning the greatest value and weeks at No. 100 earning the least.
