"The Review" controversy[edit]

In 2010, amateur music blogger Simon Sweetman hit out at Autozamm in a blog post on NZ On Air music funding, describing the group "terrible" and saying "they certainly do little to reflect any distinctly New Zealand culture."[1] In response to this, Autozamm released the single "The Review" in 2012, which hit out at Sweetman and other critics.[2]
