CABERRA'S political class has shown rare unity at the peak of an election campaign for a most unexpected purpose: to star in an indie-punk music video.

Canberra band Super Best Friends have assembled the biggest names from the world of Australian politics and journalism to star in the video for their new single, "Round and Round".

Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has a cameo, so too do Tony Abbott, Bob Katter, Christine Milne and Clive Palmer.

"Messages well rehearsed [...] It's news but not really," the lyrics go. The song's title and refrain are also likely to resonate with those involved in staging and covering this year's election campaign.

Journalists appearing in the video include 7.30's Chris Uhlmann and Channel 10's Hugh Rimington.
