Chain is an Australian blues rock band that was formed in 1969 by Phil Manning and Stuart Speed in Melbourne. The original line-up included bassist Barry Harvey, drummer Paul Housden, and organist Peter Robinson. The band released their debut album, Chain, in 1970, which featured their first single, "Black and Blue", and was the first album ever released on the Mushroom Records label. The band's second album, Toward the Blues, was released in 1971 and featured the singles "My Lady" and "Satisfy My Soul".

In 1972, Chain released their third album, Boom Boom, which featured the single "Don't Need Your Lovin' Anymore" and became their biggest hit. The album also featured their cover of the J.J. Cale song "Cocaine". In 1975, Chain released their fourth album, Flying High, which featured the single "Don't Lose Your Cool".

Chain released their fifth and final album, Two of a Kind, in 1976. The album featured the singles "Good Times" and "Dreams in My Head".

Throughout their career, Chain achieved cult status in Australia, and were the first blues band to tour Australia. They also released four live albums. One of the most interesting facts about the band is that they were the first blues band to ever appear on Australian television.
