Rockers Jet have topped an amazing year by landing seven nominations for the AUSTRALIAN RECORD INDUSTRY ASSOCIATION (Aria) AWARDS.

The four-piece leads the pack for the awards in their native Australia, which take place on 17 October (04).

The Melbourne-based group is a favourite to win Best Group and Single of The Year (ARE YOU GONNA BE MY GIRL?) categories, and their hit album GET BORN is also up for Best Album and Best Rock Album. The band are also up for Highest-Selling Album and Breakthrough Artist awards.

John Butler Trio and singer Pete Murray each have five nods apiece.

Meanwhile, the Little River Band will be inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame at the ceremony. In the 1970s, they became the first Australian act to sell one million albums.
