Sounds (originally known as Sound Unlimited) was a popular Australian television series featuring pop and rock music. It was broadcast on Saturday mornings on the Seven Network from the late 1970s to the late 1980s.

The series began as Sound Unlimited in late 1974, just before its longtime rival, the ABC's Countdown.

The show's producer and original host was the former commercial radio DJ Graham "Spider" Webb, who later handed the compère position to the former horse jockey and 1960s pop singer Donnie Sutherland. Jeffrey James was a co-compere with Webb and later with Sutherland but left the show.

Many music stars appeared on the show, and it is notable as the venue for the final public appearance, on 30 September 1978, of Australian rock'n'roll legend Johnny O'Keefe, who died a week later on 6 October.

Sound Unlimited (initially without the plural) was the first live studio programme broadcast in Australia in March 1975.[citation needed]
