YouTube Tuesday #02

With much of Newcastle still under water it seemed appropriate to feature a Silverchair song about natural disaster on this week’s edition of YouTube Tuesday.

Faultline was written about the 1989 Newcastle earthquake which killed 13 people and caused extensive damage around the city.

This performance took place on 21 January 2001 in front of over 250,000 people at the Rock In Rio Festival.
