Jet were an Australian rock band formed in 2001 in Melbourne. The band consisted of lead guitarist Cameron Muncey, bassist Mark Wilson, and brothers Nic and Chris Cester on vocals/rhythm guitar and drums respectively. The group sold 6.5 million albums. Brothers Nic Cester and Chris Cester grew up in a suburb just out of Melbourne, Victoria, listening to their father's classic rock records from the 1960s and 1970s, such as The Who, AC/DC, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, and John Lennon. However, according to Nic, it was Australian band You Am I who had the biggest influence on Jet's developing musical tastes. The brothers decided to form a band with Cameron Muncey. The band met Mark Wilson one night in 2002 at a concert and, despite already having a bass player, asked him to play with them.

Jet entered the Sunset Sound Studios in Los Angeles with Dave Sardy and James Donovan to produce their debut album Get Born. Their singles Are You Gonna Be My Girl and Rollover DJ were voted number one and number nineteen respectively on the 2003 Triple J Hottest 100. Later the same year, Jet received nominations for the annual Radio Music Awards, including Artist of the Year: Rock Radio, Artist of the Year: Rock Alternative Radio, and Song of the Year: Rock Radio (for Cold Hard Bitch).

Shine On was released on 30 September 2006 (2 October in the UK, 3 October in the US) with a final track listing of 15 songs. It debuted at No. 3 on the Australian charts. Critical reaction to the album was mixed, though British music magazine NME called the record "another joyfully old-fashioned rock'n'roll album immersed in the classics".

Shaka Rock was released in Australia on 21 August 2009: it has been certified gold in Australia in 2009. On 26 March 2012, Jet announced their 'discontinuation as a group,' via the band's website and Facebook: A Message To Our Fans: After many successful years of writing, recording and touring we wish to announce our discontinuation as a group. 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. « hide
