Facts for 2013

The 2013 20 Years of Triple J's Hottest 100, was the seventh Hottest 100 countdown for which votes were not restricted to a single year, but the first Hottest 100 countdown for which votes were restricted to a range of years. It was announced on May 8th as a way to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the yearly Hottest 100s, and to find out the public's favourite song for the past 20 years. Voting was only open to songs whose release date fell between January 1st, 1993, and December 31st, 2012. These voting restrictions immediately knocked out songs that voters mentioned would be #1 via social media, such as Radiohead's 'Creep' and Rage Against The Machine's 'Killing In The Name'; both of which featured in the 1993 countdown, but were released in 1992, and therefore ineligible.

The Countdown

The countdown took place over the weekend of June 8th and 9th, 2013, and featured a mixture of 84 different artists. 940,000 votes were counted in the countdown, significantly less than previous years, All Time or otherwise, especially considering votes were limited to 20 per voter for this countdown, rather than the 10 votes each voter recieves for a normal countdown. Despite this, on June 2nd, the date that voting closed, Triple J reported they had seen the largest instance of voting in one day for any countdown they've ever held.

Out of the 100 songs to feature in the countdown, 5 songs had not featured in a yearly countdown, whereas one song had never featured in any countdown before. Bloc Party's 'Banquet', Daft Punk's 'Around The World,, and Jeff Buckley's 'Hallelujah' had not featured in a yearly countdown, but had all featured in the 2009 All Time countdown. Daft Punk's 'Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger' had featured in 2007 as part of a live version, mixed with 'Around The World'. The Kook's 'Naïve' had never featured in any countdown ever held by Triple J before. The Temper Trap's 'Sweet Disposition' had only been featured in the 101-200 list before, reaching #102 in the 2008 Hottest 100 countdown.

In 1997, Blur's 'Song 2', which runs for 2 minutes and 2 seconds, was voted in at #2. This year, in the 20th anniversary edition of the Hottest 100, it was voted in at #22.

Only 5 songs which had previously reached #1 did not chart in the countdown. Denis Leary's 'Asshole' (1993), The Offspring's 'Pretty Fly (For A White Guy)' (1998), Alex Lloyd's 'Amazing' (2001), Bernard Fanning's 'Wish You Well' (2005) and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' 'Thrift Shop' (2012).
However, prior to Hilltop Hoods' 'Nosebleed Section' being played at #4, presenter Alex Dyson made reference to a lack of hip-hop being present in the countdown before 'accidentally' playing the intro to 'Thrift Shop', presumably as a way to tease listeners who had vented on social media that 'Thrift Shop' was 'too recent' to make the list, 'a novelty', or just didn't deserve to make the list in general.

On June 11th, during Tom & Alex's breakfast program, it was revealed the #101 song was 'Zebra', by The John Butler Trio, reportedly being behind the #100 song by only 50 votes.


Hottest 100 Quiz

In the lead-up to the countdown, the Triple J website hosted a special section for the Hottest 100, including access to previous countdowns, as well as a Hottest 100 quiz in which player's could answer questions and compete for prizes. Below are the questions asked throughout the quiz period. (The answer accepted by the Triple J website is given in bold, while other information given about the question is in normal text.)

US band Eels formed in 1995. The frontman's dad is a famous what (one word)?
  • Physicist
    Mark Oliver Everett, better known as 'E', is the frontman for US band Eels. His father, Hugh Everett III, was a famous physicist who was known for his work with quantam theory. Eels first appeared in a Hottest 100 in 1996, reaching #39 with 'Novocaine For The Soul'.

    Strangely, this question was removed soon after being asked, with no reason for its removal, and is not listed on the official list of questions on the Triple J website.
What side project for Death Cab For Cutie’s Ben Gibbard put out their debut album in 2003?
  • The Postal Service - 'Give Up' (2003)
    While the album contained no songs to feature in the Hottest 100 for that year, in 2006, Ben Folds' cover of the album's lead single 'Such Great Heights' reached #70.
Australian sports journalist Les Murray accepted an ARIA on behalf of which band in 1995?
  • TISM
    The group recieved the ARIA for 'Best Independent Release' for their 1995 album 'Machiavelli And The Four Seasons'. Les Murray was chosen as the recipient of the award due to one of the songs on the album being named 'What Nationality Is Les Murray?'. The Hungarian-born Murray read a vaguely insulting acceptance speech, also in Hungarian, at the awards which translated to "When the revolution happens, the music industry will be the first to go. Thank you."
The 2007 Hottest 100 was the first in 10 years NOT to feature this Australian act.
  • The Living End
    Starting in 1997, the group featured for 10 consecutive years with the following 15 songs:

    • 1997: Prisoner Of Society (#15)
    • 1997: From Here On In (#49)
    • 1998: Save The Day (#10)
    • 1998: Second Solution (#15)

    • 1999: All Torn Down (#41)
    • 1999: West End Riot (#48)

  • Pauline Pantsdown
    Pantsdown featured at #5 in 1997 with his highly controversial song 'Back Door Man' (which also featured in the 1998 All Time countdown at #92), and again in 1998 at #58 with 'I Don't Like It'. Oddly, the question only mentions Pantsdown featuring in the 1998 countdown, which is probably due to the fact that 'Back Door Man' was actually banned from airplay in 1997 due to its percieved defamation of Pantsdown's political eponym, Pauline Hanson.
Which American ska band claimed never to have been tested for cowardice in 1998?
  • The Mighty Mighty Bosstones
    In 1998, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones featured at #38 with their song 'The Impression That I Get'. The question relates to the line in the song that goes as such: "I'm not a coward, I've just never been tested./I'd like to think that if I was I would pass."
Which Hottest 100 cut from 2010 was recorded live at the Brit Awards in this same year?
  • You Got The Dirtee Love
    Florence And The Machine's cover version of The Source & Candi Staton's 'You Got The Love' was performed live at the 2010 Brit Awards with Dizzee Rascal, who incorporated parts of his own song, 'Dirtee Cash', to make a version that was dubbed 'You Got The Dirtee Love'. This recording reached #27 in the 2010 Hottest 100.
On which planet did Ben Harper record his 2001 live album ‘Live From Mars’?
  • Earth
    Ben Harper's live album 'Live From Mars' featured a cover of The Verve's 'The Drugs Don't Work'. This track reached #22 in the 2001 Hottest 100, while the original version also reached #22 in the 1997 Hottest 100.
Which American band sang about 'Superman skivvies' in 1994?
  • Weezer
    In 1994, Weezer featured at #40 with their song 'Undone - The Sweater Song'. The question relates to the line in the song that goes as such: "It's good to see you lying there in your Superman skivvies./Lying on the floor, I've come undone."

In the video for Foo Fighters' 'Learn To Fly', how many characters does Dave Grohl play?
  • 6
    In 1999, Foo Fighters featured at #11 with 'Learn To Fly', which was accompanied by a humourous music video, which featured members of the band playing different characters. Singer and guitarist Dave Grohl is featured as a flight attendant, a pilot, a fat lady, himself, a teenage fan and an FBI agent in the video, in addition to being featured performing the song with the band via a video screen within the video.

    Soon after this question was posted, it was taken down, with Triple J citing an error being the reason. However, it may have also been due to confusion over the answer, mainly as to whether Dave Grohl's appearance in the video as a performer should be counted as a seventh character.
What combo did Ben Folds grow when he 'thought about the Army'?
  • Moustache and a mullet
    In 1999, Ben Folds Five featured at #51 with their song 'Army'. The question relates to the line in the song that goes as such: "Grew a moustache and a mullet, got a job at Chick-fil-A./Citing artistic differences the band broke up in May, and in June reformed without me, and they got a different name."

Tyler Touché's 'Baguette' did however reached #188 in the 2012 Hottest 100 countdown. Considering that the 2012 #101-200 was the first time that the runner-up countdown had been aired, it may have been viewed as acceptable to ask this particular question.
