Silverchair were honoured with five awards at the Ninth Annual Australian Record Industry (ARIA) ceremony at Sydney's Darling Harbour convention centre on Oct. 2, 1995.
The band were nominated for eight awards and won in the following categories:
Best Australian Single (Tomorrow)
Best Australian Debut Single (Tomorrow)
Highest Selling Australian Single (Tomorrow)
Best Australian New Talent
Best Australian Debut Album (frogstomp)
In typical silverchair style, the band members chose not to go to the podium to accept any of their awards, instead sending up Josh Shirley, the young son of frogstomp producer Kevin "Caveman" Shirley.
silverchair did make an appearance on stage, however, teaming up with You Am I lead singer Tim Rogers for the ARIA Awards closing number, a performance of the Radio Birdman track New Race.
At the end of the song, Ben Gillies decided to take a header at the front of his bass drum. A slit was supposed to have been cut in the drum skin but it wasn't, so Gillies was left seeing stars for a moment.
