The Triple J Hottest 100 started 34 years ago in 1989.
In 2017, ABC decided to move the countdown from Australia Day to the following Saturday after hearing feedback from listeners.
On Friday, Sportsbet named Flume’s Say Nothing as the number one song in its annual music listener poll.
Flume, aka Harley Streten, missed out on 2021’s 100 Hottest Spots, but the famous music producer won #1 in 2016 with “Never Be Like You,” #2 in 2019 with “Rushing Back,” 3rd place in 2020 with “The Difference”.
Fremantle indie rock band Spacey Jane were also competing for first place in the popularity polls for “Hard Light” and “Sitting Up.”
Spacey Jane ranks number three on the 100 Hottest of 2021 with her hit “Lots of Nothing.” The band’s track “Lunchtime” also scored her number 12.
1st and 2nd place went to The Wiggles’ rendition of Tame Impala’s Elephant and The Kid LAROI and Justin Bieber’s rendition of Stay.
Also competing with Saturday’s odds is Sydney’s Gang of Youth song In the wake of your leave.
The Hottest 100 was first launched in 1989 and invites members of the public to vote for their favorite Australian and alternative music of the year in an online poll.
It comes from The West Australian asking 50 Australian celebrities to name their favorite local song.
Among the names on the list are Birds of Tokyo’s Ian Kenny, who chose Tame Impala’s Let It Happen, and award-winning musician and Australian Idol judge Amy Shark, who chose Silverchair’s Miss You Love. Includes famous Australian singers.
Also, Prime Minister Anthony Albanese said Washington State’s favorite song was Wide Open Road by The Triffids, while Prime Minister Mark McGowan chose Midnight Oil’s Power and the Passion.
Prominent businessmen, women and television personalities from across the country also shared their top picks from bands and artists, from INXS hits to classics reimagined in the Noongar language.
