The annual countdown has generated controversy for its shift to Jan 27th.
triple j has attracted a good measure of support and criticism for its decision to move its annual countdown away from Australia Day, to January 27th.
As reported by radioinfo, the Hottest 100 was not created as an Australia Day celebration (also as argued by triple j management), and made its decision after extensive consultation with community leaders, musicians, and listeners.
Each year hundreds of thousands of music fans from all over the world vote for their favourite song of the past 12 months, culminating in a count down of the Hottest 100 songs of the year.
Recent #1’s include Flume’s ‘Never be Like You (feat Kai)’ (2016), The Rubens’ ‘Hoops’ (2015) and Chet Faker’s ‘Talk Is Cheap’ (2014).
Listeners have until 9am AEDT Monday 22 January to have their say.
Check out triple j presenters’ fave songs of 2017, including votes from Ben, Liam & Brooke, Gen & Lewis, Linda Marigliano, Zan Rowe, Dom Alessio, Tom Tilley and more.
