Melbourne band Jet announces end

CHART-topping Melbourne rockers Jet have called it quits.

The band announced their "discontinuation" today via their website and Facebook page.

"A Message To Our Fans: After many successful years of writing, recording and touring we wish to announce our discontinuation as a group," the statement said.

"From the many pubs, theatres, stadiums and festivals all across the world it was the fans that made our amazing story possible and we wish to thank them all. Thank you, and goodnight."

The four-piece found fame with the catchy song Are You Gonna Be My Girl from their debut album Get Born, which went platinum eight times in Australia.

Jet's songs were also used in several movies and TV series including Spider-Man 2, Spider-Man 3 and She's Out of My League.
