Summary This chapter provides a historical context and a cursory sketch of a selection of geo-historical specificities for popular music in Australia and Aotearoa/New Zealand. Our specific interest lies in the cities or broader urban areas of these countries-cities are indelibly connected with the production and consumption of popular music. We also collate and synthesize established research in an original manner, with a view to instigating new concepts and understandings of this existing knowledge in such a way as to reimagine popular music "down under." As such, this is the first study that pairs the popular music histories of both Australia and Aotearoa/New Zealand together in relation to cities; a timely inclusion to the academic literature. In doing so, we reveal contemporary concerns born out of Australia and Aotearoa/New Zealand's colonial pasts and post-colonial presents, and how they respond to globalization in relation to popular music in revealing ways.
