Aussie rock group Jebediah have been wowing fans on stage and radio for more than two decades, but their latest news has shocked fans around the country.
In between performing at the Australian Open this week, and some other Melbourne gigs, the group have taken to their Facebook page to announce that a “slice of rock and roll history” is for sale.
And fans are lapping it up
“The house we filmed the Jerks of Attention video clip in, (also Kev’s first share house after moving out of home, the inspiration for another certain song), is up for sale and apart from a fresh lick of paint and some new carpet, still looks exactly the same as it did in 1996,” Jebs wrote on their page.

Listing agent Joseph Mansour, from Majestic, also notes in the ad “Please note that the property is tenanted and we respectively ask that you view the home from the street should you drive past and not enter the property without prior arrangement with the agent.”
For many fans — according to their comments on Facebook — the price appears to be out of their budget too buy, but some are looking outside the box.
“ahh you assume I have savings and could actually afford travel costs to Perth to visit it! Now I know where it is I just wanna take a photo in front of it with the copy of my Jerks single,” one fan commented.
Another wrote: “If only I had a spare million lying around”
“I’ll have to check down the back of the lounge to see if I dropped $1.2m in coins back there,” another joked.
Others reminisced about the songs that may have been written there.
“Bet the lino needs a scrub too,” one fan wrote.
And others wondered if “Leaving Home” was also written there, and another asked the question “What’s worth more? 1) Profits from Leaving Home, or 2) Profits from buying that house in 1996 and selling now?”
