Aussie band Jet are going to revisit their debut album Get Born to celebrate its 15th anniversary.

Fifteen years after Jet asked "Are you gonna be my girl?" the Australian band are going to celebrate the song that became a rock anthem, and the album that it came from, Get Born.

Jet's debut record launched them onto the world stage with lead singer Nic Cester's distinctive rock scream.

The group sold 6.5 million copies of Get Born, won six ARIAs, toured the world and officially announced the return of rock.

Now Jet, who reformed last year to support Bruce Springsteen during his Australian tour, have decided to perform their debut album at a series of concerts across the country in May and June.

"We're really excited to play Get Born in full for the first time ever. The idea of playing this album and celebrating 15 years since we began our journey is something that's very special to us," the band said.

Fans in Melbourne can also head for AC/DC Lane in the CBD at 1pm on Tuesday where Jet will play a free lunchtime concert.
