In preparation for Australia Day on 26 January, one Aussie decided to produce a song that could pin down the nation's rich heritage and multicultural society.

So, naturally he did a parody of Outkast's 'Hey Ya' and captured the very essence of the land down under.

Coach Bombay is a music project by Melbourne musician Terry Mann, who told Mashable: "You can't pin down Australia in one or two easy stereotypes. There's so much to it. Such a wide range of landscapes, wildlife, people and lifestyles. Put it all together and it makes no sense. But somehow, it's just bloody great."

The tune certainly exudes Australian-ness, but it's particularly good because it acknowledges how utterly terrifying the wildlife is.
