.
(hennemusic) INXS have topped the Australian charts for the first time in 24 years following the broadcast of the debut episode of a new mini-series, "INXS: Never Tear Us Apart."

The Herald Sun reports "The Very Best" compilation hit No. 1 thanks to an explosion in sales after the broadcast. The February 9 episode - the first of two parts about the global rise and fall of the 1980s pop band led by Michael Hutchence - garnered a national audience of 2.881 million, ahead of a biopic about infamous Australian drug smuggler Schapelle Corby (1.344 million) and the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics, which drew 1.238 million viewers.

Their international breakthrough record, "Kick" also landed back in the top 10 at No.7 (it previously peaked at No. 2 when it was released in 1987). "Live At Wembley Stadium" shot to No. 17, while "Shabooh Shoobah" (No. 41), "The Swing" (43) and "Listen Like Thieves" (53) enjoyed ratings assisted boosts in sales. more on this story
