Facts for 2012's #101-200

The 2012 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 2012.

The Countdown

The Hottest 100 of 2012 countdown took place in January of 2013. For the first time since the countdown began, and the first time since the #101-200 positions were released, a second Hottest 100 countdown was held a week later on February 2nd, in which the songs which reached #101-200 were counted down as a normal Hottest 100 would be.

At #127, Hermitude featured with 'HyperParadise'. In the original countdown, the Flume remix of 'HyperParadise' featured at #18.

At #189, Cub Scouts featured with 'I Told You So'. In mid-2013, the band were forced to change their name to 'Cub Sport' following a legal dispute with Scouts Australia.

Lana Del Rey achieved 3 tracks in the countdown, with her best reaching #144. 15 other artists also managed to chieve 2 tracks each.

Australia's 61 entries is a record for any form of countdown, beating the previous records of 52 for the 1999 and 2007 normal Hottest 100 countdowns.

Both the Netherlands and South Africa made the chart, which is the first time that either country has been seen in a Hottest 100.
