Australia inspired the creation of popular emo-rock outfit Jack's Mannequin. Main man for the Mannequin, Andrew McMahon told take40.com recently that when his old band toured here a few years back supporting The Offspring, they realized how burnt out they were and decided to take a break.
When take40.com questioned him on whether Australia can actually lay claim to creating Jack's Mannequin, McMahon's response was "I'm gonna give it to you... it's yours." Australia -- we may be a small country but we are very influential.
