Triple J is Australia's most prominent youth-orientated radio station and has been broadcasting since 1975, but since 1989, one of the defining aspects of the station has been its annual Hottest 100 music countdown.
After the station initially began counting down the Hottest 100 songs of all time in 1989 through to 1991, the focus shifted to yearly countdowns in 1993. What followed has led to the Triple J Hottest 100 becoming the biggest musical democracy in the world.

The Triple J Hottest 100 is one of the most accurate example of listener's opinions of alternative music.
It has become the largest music poll in the world and, as such, has spawned countless facts and figures associated with the songs that have been voted in.
The statistics section gives insights into how artists have performed over the years, cover songs reaching the countdown, the available voting lists for previous years, and, possibly the most intensely researched area of the site, the release dates of each song.

About This Site
I've been a fan of Triple J for a long time, and as any listener would know, one of the defining aspects of the station is the annual Hottest 100 countdown. After years of helping to maintain Wikipedia articles and adding information to them, I became annoyed at the lack of interesting, allowable information available on those articles, and the accessibility of past, albeit very good, information from the Triple J website.
So in early 2012, the original version of this site was launched. A year later, and after a massive redesign, and a shift to a far more reliable web server, the new unofficial Hottest 100 database was launched in January 2013.
So, this site intends to collect as much data relating to the Triple J Hottest 100 as possible. To get started, simply click on any of the links at the top of the page, and enjoy as much as possible.
Please remember that this is essentially a fan site. It is intended for reference only and is in no way officialy linked, connected or sponsored by the ABC or Triple J. I do not own any of the information and pictures on here (except for the statistics and facts, which are all my own research), I'm merely collating them for easy reference.
