Jet is an Australian hard rock band hailing form Melbourne. The band formed in 2001 with founding members Nic and Chris Cester meeting with guitarist Cameron Muncey. Bassist Mark Wilson completed the line-up.
The band first self-released their Dirty Sweet EP as a vinyl only album in 2002. It proved to be relatively successful with the limited 1,000 pressings selling out. The demand led the band to release a thousand more. This gave the band some attention that led to Elektra offering the band a recording contract.
Jet then went on to release their studio album, Get Born in 2003. the album contained the hit singles, Are You Gonna Be My Girl, Rollover DJ and Look What You’ve Done. The band’s debut album went on to sell over four million copies worldwide. Their second album, Shine On was released on August of 2006 but was not able to match the success of their debut album. The band is working on their third album that is scheduled to be released sometime at the end of 2008 or early 2009.
