In early 1972 the Aztecs released what became their biggest hit, and Thorpe’s signature tune — “Most People I Know (Think That I’m Crazy)”, a song now widely regarded as one of the classics of Australian rock. It was a huge hit for the new Aztecs, peaking in the Go-Set National Top 40 Singles Chart at number 3 in May 1972; propelled to the top of charts by the band’s triumphant appearance at the 1972 Sunbury Music Festival. Thorpe himself claimed this as a pivotal moment in the development of Australian music, thanks to the promoters’ decision to feature an all-Australian lineup, rather than relying on imported stars.
“Most People I Know (Think That I’m Crazy)” was added to the National Film and Sound Archive’s Sounds of Australia Registry in 2008.
