When the War is Over. Wild Thing. Cold Chisel's songs were about distinctly Australian experiences, a factor often cited as a major reason for the band's lack of international appeal. Songs like "Shipping Steel" and "Standing on The Outside" were working class anthems and many others featured characters trapped in mundane, everyday existences, yearning for the good times of the past "Flame Trees" or for something better from life "Bow River".
But the band was also famous for its wild lifestyle, particularly the hard-drinking Barnes, who played his role as one of the wild men of Australian rock to the hilt, never seen on stage without at least one bottle of vodka and often so drunk he could barely stand upright. Despite this, by he was a devoted family man who refused to tour without his wife and daughter. Cold Chisel remained hugely popular however and by the mids had continued to sell records at such a consistent rate they became the first Australian band to achieve higher sales after their split than during their active years [ citation needed ].
