What about Jein from Fettes Brot? Still an extremely popular song played left and right despite beginning with the line "It's 1996...".

Irgendwie Irgendwo Irgendwann can be heard on the radio here in the Czech Republic even now ;)

Many of the American superstar songs become international. Hard to say

None of our songs will ever become international because nobody can understand them, but some of them should:

Aleš Brichta - Dívka s perlami ve vlasech

Lucie Bílá - Vokurky

Lucie - Amerika

Wanastowi Vjecy - Kouzlo

BSP - Země vzdálená

I grew up on these :inlove:

From Australia it has to be anything by The Wiggles. The Big Red Car would be a good song to start with. Wake up Jeff was another monumental chart topping hit.

I know that Garth Brooks is one of the most successful singers in the US ever. But I guess nobody knows him abroad :D

Gabriella Cilmi :rocker2:.
She's is a good singer with good songs, but what it's more amazing in her it's her stuning beauty :worship:

But she's not in the OP standards of "not being famous worldwide"... She became pretty famous, even if she was a one hit wonder in international level...

Hate to play the grumpy role... but the amount of noisy crap in this thread is off the charts.
