Triple J Hottest 100

Who will top the Triple J Hottest 100 chart in 2015? Winner announced on Australa Day!

Triple J Hottest 100

The Triple J Hottest 100 is as synonymous with Australia Day as barbecues, thongs and idiots draped in flags. It’s the hands-free no-fuss option for your barbecue and, if nothing else, it prevents tantrums from your stereo-hogging DJ-wannabe mates (and blokes in flags). And these days it’s not all about mid-strength guitar rock either – 2013 saw the first hip hop song voted number one, with Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ Thrift Shop – so Triple J Hottest 100 betting is more diverse than ever.

What started out as a handful of listeners writing in with their favourite song for the year has now morphed into the largest music poll in the world. That’s right, the Triple J Hottest 100 2015 will attract over half a million votes! Voting starts in mid-December and numbers are tallied in time for the songs to be played out on 26 January. Nowadays you can have your say via the Triple J website and text message, and you can vote up to ten times via each method. So, if you’re gonna be voting, why not check out Triple J Hottest 100 odds while you’re at it!

The History of the Triple J Hottest 100

Originally, the Triple J Hottest 100 poll started in Sydney by DoubleJay in the 1980s, before Triple J became a national DJ. It was originally named the Hot 100 and was played on New Year's Day. Brisbane radio Station 4ZZZ had run a poll under the same name and the same day since 1977, in which they also owned the rights to the name Hot 100. Triple J then changed the name of the poll to Hottest 100.

In 1989 to 1991, there were no restrictions to the eligible songs. The first winner to top the poll in 1989, and again 1990 was Joy Division, with "Love Will Tear Us Apart". The song was originally released 9 years prior to the poll in 1980. In 1991, Nirvana won the song of the year gong with "Smells Like Teen Spirit" which happened to be released on that year.

The Triple J Hottest 100 poll had to take a break in 1992 as the organisers thought that Nirvana and Joy Division would top the poll again on that year. Therefore, new rules were implemented and the popular poll returned in 1993. The rules were changes so only songs released that year could enter the poll. That year, American actor, comedian, writer and film producer topped the poll with his song ‘Asshole’.

What happened in the 2013 Triple J Hottest 100?

Vance Joy’s Rip Tide took out first place in the poll. This was a bit of a coup in terms of the gravity of competition (Daft Punk and Arctic Monkeys!) and the fact that he’s the first Triple J Unearthed (a station initiative that gives a leg-up to emerging talent) artist to win the Hottest 100 outright.
