>The Cockroaches was an Australian rock / pop band which achieved reasonable success in the 1980s and 1990s. The band took its name from an obscure nom de plume favoured by The Rolling Stones during the 1960s.

The band is today best known for containing several members of the internationally successful children’s musical group The Wiggles.

When you watch what they did as The Cockroaches with a great song like She’s The One and then compare with The Wiggles’ Hot Potato you’d clearly prefer to be stuck on a desert island with a CD of the former than the latter. If you were their manager then you’d choose the latter incarnation, as The Wiggles generate nearly $50M per year in sales. Amazing.
