"Axegrinder" was a single by iconicAustralian rock group Hoodoo Gurus. It was released on RCA Records in August, 1989 from their album Magnum Cum Louder; and was written by Dave Faulkner. B side "Spaghetti Western" was also written by Faulkner.
"I often describe "Axegrinder" as the song that 'killed' Magnum Cum Louder. We had enjoyed considerable airplay for "Come Anytime" (and prior singles) but "Axegrinder" stopped everything cold. Funnily enough, it became one of our biggest showstoppers in concert within 12 months." - Dave Faulkner.
