Muswellbrook, New South Wales（英語版Wikipediaより抄）
Muswellbrook is a town in the Upper Hunter Region of New South Wales, Australia,about 243 km (151 mi) north of Sydney and 127 km (79 mi) north-west of Newcastle.
The Steely Dan song "Black Friday" from the 1975 album Katy Lied contains the lyrics:
"When Black Friday comes,
I'll fly down to Muswellbrook, gonna strike all the big red words from my little black book.
Gonna do just what I please, gonna wear no socks and shoes, with nothing to do but feed
all the kangaroos."
> Songwriter Donald Fagen explained the lyrics in an interview with Paul Cashmere of Undercover Music; "I think we had a map and put our finger down at the place that we thought would be the furthest away from New York or wherever we were at the time".
