Facts for 2008's #101-200

The 2008 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 2008.

The Countdown

The original Hottest 100 countdown for 2008 took place in January of 2009. For the first time since the 1991 All Time Countdown, the list for the tracks in positions #101 to #200 were released on January 27th, 2009; the day after the 2008 countdown.

At #161, The Kooks' cover of MGMT's 'Kids' marks the third time that a song has featured in the same countdown as cover of itself. Since it's below the 100, it doesn't count officially, however, it has been done twice before, with Something For Kate covering Jebediah's 'Harpoon' in 1998, and Scissor Sisters covering Franz Ferdinand's 'Take Me Out' in 2004. It also occurred in 2013 when San Cisco covered Daft Punk's 'Get Lucky'.

Artists Featured

Bloc Party, Flight Of The Conchords and Kings Of Leon were the best performing artists, all charting 3 times, while 15 other bands managed 2 tracks each.
