Men at Work was one of Australia’s hottest acts in the late 1970s and early 1980s. They were known for massive hits like Down Under, Who Can It Be Now? and Overkill in the leadup to winning the Grammy for Best New Artist in 1983. And while their music is iconic, not as much is known about the band itself. Frontman Colin Hay is a bit of a mystery. So, we’re playing our version of who can it be, now? Let’s dig in!
Men at Work had 4 top 10 hits during their 6-year career, more than most other new wave bands. They also won the Grammy for Best New Artist in 1983. ARIA (Australian Recording Industry Awards) inducted Men at Work into the hall of fame later, in 1994.
