Gang of Youths Acceptance Speech 2017 ARIAs

Gang of Youths Sweep the ARIAs — and Their Speeches Were Award-Worthy, Too

Australian indie rock group Gang of Youths were the big winners on ARIAs night on Tuesday, walking away with three of the night's major gongs and adding a whole lot of new fans to their collection.

Taking home the ARIA Awards for Album of the Year, Best Rock Album and Best Group, the five band members — who all hail from Sydney's west — could hardly believe their success, and weren't about to forget where they came from. "I grew up in the inner west of Sydney and I didn't have a lot of money," said lead singer David Le'aupepe. "My parents spent the last $200 they had on a guitar, and that guitar changed my f*cking life. Go and pick up a guitar, go pick up an instrument, go and get a laptop and download some software, because the world needs good artists who have something to say."

Watch the full acceptance speech for Best Rock Album below, and congratulations to Gang of Youths!
