This is a list of awards won by Australian band Crowded House. Crowded House has won several awards internationally, including twelve ARIA Awards from the Australian Recording Industry Association, and eight APRA Awards from the Australasian Performing Right Association. APRA also named "Don't Dream It's Over" the seventh best Australian song of all time in 2001.[1]

History[edit]

As Crowded House is a band that was formed by two of the final five members (including singer-songwriter Neil Finn) of popular New Zealand originated rock group Split Enz, their popularity was established before their first album was released. With this anticipation, the group performed in an array of venues and through this, earned industry and fan credibility, and won awards based on the quality of their music and the skill of their members' respective crafts.[2] Of the lauded works, the most awarded is the group's song "Don't Dream It's Over" from their self-titled debut album Crowded House. The song has earned two ARIA Music Awards,[3] three APRA Awards (including the seventh best Australian song),[1][4][5] a BMI Award,[6] four MTV Music Video Awards,[7] and in 1998 were placed 76th on the Triple J Hottest 100 of All Time, having also had two other songs in general Triple J Hottest 100, an annual Australian selection of the best songs of that year.[8] The group also won the BRIT Award for Best International Group in 1994.[9] The group dissolved in 1996,[2] however reformed in 2007.[10] Since reforming, the group has released their fifth studio album Time on Earth. The album's first single "Don't Stop Now" was nominated for the New Zealand Silver Scroll, an APRA Award, for 2007.[11]

ARIA Awards[edit]

In Australia, the group has won twelve ARIA Awards from 30 nominations, including being the first ever winner of the Best New Talent award in 1987, the ceremony's first year. These awards are presented by the Australian Record Industry Association. The group's success has been across categories, but they have been particularly successful in the "best group" category.[3] Notably, the majority of the ARIA Awards were won in the band's earlier years from their first two albums, Crowded House and Temple of Low Men.[3]
