Midnight Oil (known informally as “The Oils”) are an Australian rock band composed of Peter Garrett (vocals, harmonica), Rob Hirst (drums), Jim Moginie (guitar, keyboard) and Martin Rotsey (guitar). Midnight Oil have sold more than 20 million albums worldwide as of 2022.

Midnight Oil garnered worldwide attention with 1987 album, Diesel and Dust. Its singles “The Dead Heart” and “Beds Are Burning” illuminated the plight of indigenous Australians, with the latter charting at number one in multiple countries.

The band’s music often broaches political subjects, and they have lent their support to multiple causes. They have won eleven ARIA Awards and were inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame in 2006. Midnight Oil‘s legacy has grown since the late 1970s, with the outfit being cited as an influence, and their songs covered, by numerous popular artists. Aside from their studio output, the group are celebrated for their energetic live performances, which showcase the frenetic dancing of Garrett. Guardian writer Andrew Street described Midnight Oil as “one of Australia’s most beloved bands”.

The group have influenced international acts, such as Green Day, R.E.M., Pearl Jam, Garbage, The Cranberries, Biffy Clyro, Candlebox, Maná, Hot Water Music and Shades Apart, as well as Australian performers, such as Crowded House, Powderfinger, The Living End, John Butler, DMA’s and Tim Freedman. R.E.M. frontman Michael Stipe described Peter Garrett as a “brilliant” songwriter who is “able to imagine a situation, put himself into it and write about it”, adding, “That, to me, is incredible”. Crowded House singer Neil Finn went on to have multiple collaborations with Jim Moginie, whom he called “a great guy and an amazing guitar player”. Biffy Clyro vocalist Simon Neil said of Midnight Oil, “Every night for about three weeks, driving home from the studio, I would just put ‘Beds Are Burning’ on, just on loop… They’re a really underrated band.”

Midnight Oil‘s songs have been covered by performers such as Pearl Jam (and frontman Eddie Vedder solo), U2, Patti Smith, The Killers, Imagine Dragons, Silverchair, Tom Morello (as The Nightwatchman), Billy Bragg and Anti-Flag. U2 singer Bono recorded a speech for Midnight Oil‘s ARIA Hall of Fame induction, sections of which aired intermittently. He recited the chorus lyrics of their song “Forgotten Years” and hailed the outfit as an “extraordinary” band whose music “brought people’s differences together, not to resolve them, just to get them in the same room, up each other’s noses”. The Killers vocalist Brandon Flowers said, “I wish I’d written ‘Forgotten Years’… That song touches my heart.” Midnight Oil‘s music is the subject of 2001 tribute album, The Power & The Passion, which features covers by several mainstream rock acts from Australia and New Zealand, including Something for Kate, Regurgitator, Grinspoon, Jebediah, Augie March and Shihad.

 In 2009, a version of “Beds Are Burning” was recorded by numerous musicians – among them Duran Duran, Lily Allen, Bob Geldof, Fergie, Mark Ronson and Scorpions – in protest of global warming and climate change.

On March 14th, 2009, Midnight Oil headlined the Sound Relief concert in Melbourne. This event was held at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) to raise money for victims of Victoria’s February bushfire disaster. The event was held simultaneously with a concert at the Sydney Cricket Ground. All proceeds from the Melbourne Concert went to the Red Cross Victorian Bushfire relief. Appearing with Midnight Oil in Melbourne were Augie March, Bliss N Eso with Paris Wells, Gabriella Cilmi, Hunters & Collectors, Jack Johnson, Kasey Chambers & Shane Nicholson with Troy Cassar-Daley, Kings of Leon, Liam Finn, Crowded House, Jet, Paul Kelly, Split Enz and Wolfmother.

Through a long and distinguished career, Midnight Oil became known for its driving hard-rock sound, intense live performances and political activism, particularly in aid of anti-nuclear, environmentalist and indigenous causes. Their discography includes thirteen studio albums, forty-three singles, two EPs, five video albums, five live albums, and six compilation albums.
