Facts for 2000

The 2000 Hottest 100 was the eighth annual Hottest 100 countdown since the change of the format which allowed only songs from the previous year to be voted for.

The Countdown

The countdown took place in January of 2001 and featured a mixture of 78 different artists.

Powderfinger had the second Hottest 100 win in a row, meaning that 2000 became the first time, and only time to date, that an artist has topped the Hottest 100 twice, let alone in consecutive years.
Powderfinger also became the second band to achieve 2 tracks in the top 5. This was done previously by The Offspring in 1994 and later also done by Gorillaz in 2005 and Kings Of Leon and MGMT in 2008.

At #11, 28 Days featured with 'Rip It Up'. The song includes the line "You know that I'm down with doin' wrong, I don't give a fuck like hits from the bong". This line alludes to the Cypress Hill song 'Hits From The Bong', which charted at #17 in the 1993 countdown.

Limp Bizkit reached #27 with their theme song 'Take A Look Around' from the film 'Mission: Impossible II'. This is only one of a few movie themes to be voted in. The others being from the movies 'Mission: Impossible' in 1996, 'Somersault' in 2004, 'Team America: World Police' in 2005 and the James Bond film 'Quantam Of Solace' in 2008.

At #55, R.E.M. featured with their song 'The Great Beyond'. This song was written about the late comedian Andy Kaufman as part of the soundtrack for the film 'Man On The Moon', which R.E.M. composed. The film itself was named after R.E.M.'s song of the same name, also written about Kaufman, which featured in the 1993 countdown, reaching #93. Near the end of 'The Great Beyond', lyrics to 'Man On The Moon' can be heard, albeit very faintly.

The countdown also features the moderately rare distinction of having no artists reach consecutive entries. This has also happened in 1993, 1996, 1997, 2005, 2007, 2008 and 2010.
