Silverchair took out five awards in last night's ARIAs, making them the most successful ARIA winner in history.

They won five awards: Album of the Year and Best Rock Album with their album "Young Modern"; Single of the Year and Motorola Highest Selling Single with the song "Straight Lines"; and the award for Best Group. With a track record like that, you'd have to agree.

Still, Daniel Johns himself was surprised that the band had eclipsed all others to win the most ARIAs in Australian history.

"Even John Farnham? Even Barnsey? Even Chisel? Even Midnight Oil? Even AC/DC?" Daniel asked. "This is out of control. Can I hear a hallelujah?"

The John Butler Trio and Sneaky Sound System also soared in the ceremony, with The John Butler Trio winning Best Blues and Roots Album and Best Independent Release for their album Grand National, and Sneaky Sound System winning Best Dance Release, and Breakthrough Artist Album. Operator Please, meanwhile, won Breakthrough Artist Single for their hit single "Just A Song About Ping Pong".

Best Male Artist was won by Goyte, while Best Female Artist was won by Missy Higgins. The Hilltop Hoods scored the award for Best Urban Release with their album "The Hard Road- Re-strung". To read our interview with the Hilltop Hoods three weeks ago, where MC Pressure predicted their win. And if you're looking for a full list of winners, just see below. You might especially want to see the winner of the Best Children's Album - it was The Wiggles, of course. We figure they've got to be in the run-in for the most ARIA wins in the same category - this makes their sixth award.
