Compilation Notes


  • The 1994 Hottest 100 compilation album was released on July 24th, 1995. It contained 32 songs on two discs, featuring the same tracklisting as its cassette counterpart.

  • This is the first of two editions released in 1995. Another edition, which features the same track list and was released on the Universal record label, can be found below.

  • Like the reissue of the 1993 CD, the Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds track that is featured, 'Do You Love Me?', is listed on all versions as being a solo track. Strangely, the fold out poster that lists the tracks in the countdown also mentions 'Do You Love Me?' as being a solo Nick Cave track, but the other Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds song that charted, 'Thirsty Dog', is listed under the full band title.

  • Likewise, the fold out poster included also incorrectly lists Whale's 'Hobo Humpin' Slobo Babe' as 'Robo Humpin' Slobo Babe'.

  • The following tracks are different to the versions that charted in the corresponding countdown:
    • #21: Sweetness And Light - Itch-E & Scratch-E: The version on the CD is a radio edit of the song. This edited version is entitled 'Sweetness And Light (Radio Edit)'.
    • #37: Voodoo People - The Prodigy: The version on the CD is and unknown edit of the song. The CD single includes a version titled 'Voodoo People (Edit)', and runs for a time of 4:05. The version on the Hottest 100 CD is 3:21, 3 minutes shorter than the album version, and doesn't appear to be found elsewhere.
    • #43: Monkey & The Turtle - Christine Anu: The version on the CD is an edit of the song found on the corresponding CD single. This edited version is entitled 'Monkey & The Turtle (Single Edit)'

  • The following songs are unique to this edition of the CD:
    • #2: Closer - Nine Inch Nails
    • #6: Seether - Veruca Salt

1995 Reissue

Record Label: EMI
Catalogue Number:
4798062
Barcode Number:
7 24347 98062 6
Release Date: 1995

Release Notes: This is the 1995 reissue of the compilation. Released on the Universal record label, it contained 32 tracks, featuring the same tracklisting as the original version.

It is unknown as yet why it was released on a different record label so soon after the original release.

Universal Records did not release another Hottest 100 compilation until the 2002 edition in 2003, which corresponds with the release date Allmusic has for this CD. Oddly, the catalogue number on the release corresponds more with releases that were released in 2004, roughly the time that the Hottest 100 CDs saw reissues, such as with the 1993 and 1994 editions. However, this 1995 reissue uses exactly the same artwork as the original edition, including the original ABC Music logo, and the addition of track times on the rear of the CD, something the 2004 reissue lacks.
