Frogstomp is the debut album of Australian rock band Silverchair. It was released in Australia in early 1995, when the members were only 15 years of age, by Murmur Records and reached number one on the album charts. On 20 June 1995, Frogstomp was released by Epic Records in the U.S. and has been certified double platinum by the RIAA.
When asked why the album's name is Frogstomp, Johns said:
"I was at a guy from our record company's house one night and I was looking through his CDs because he's got a really good collection. I found this '60s pop collection record and I was just going (laughs), "Why do you have this?" I looked at the back and there was this song that some guy did called frogstomp and I said, "That's a pretty good name." (laughs) I just rang up Ben and Chris and we just thought it was really funny so we used it for the album."
