Facts for 1991's #101-200

The 1991 Hottest 100's list of places for #101 - 200 is the list of songs that didn't make the final 100 in Triple J's Hottest 100 of All Time for 1991.

The Countdown

The Hottest 100 of All Time for 1991 countdown took place in 1992 and for the first time, the list for the tracks in positions #101 to #200 were released.
Originally these were posted on the Triple J website in their Hottest 100 History section, however, from 2005 onwards, the list for these has been removed. Varying reports say that these tracks were indeed counted down in 1993, in place of the annual All Time countdown, which was in hiatus for that year.

Triple J themselves had this list under the heading of '1992', indicating that this was the Hottest 100 of All Time for 1992. But, as can be heard here, when the number 1 song for the 1991 countdown was announced via Krist Novoselic of Nirvana, the announcer joked that the #1 song was 'Black Or White', by Michael Jackson. He shortly amitted he was joking, and stated the song was actually at #113. While the song actually reached #112, it's more than enough proof to show that this is the #101-200 list for the 1991 All Time countdown.
