20 Years Of Triple J's Hottest 100 Release Dates

This list compiles the dates for when each track that appeared in the Hottest 100 was released, and the name of the accompanying album or other applicable media format it was released on. It should be noted that the release dates listed are the earliest date at which the track in question was first released. This may mean it differs from the official release date of its accompanying album. In many cases, a track can be released months, or even years prior to its accompanying album. This may be due to a song being released as a single first, or being picked up and popularised by a radio station prior to an official release. Regardless, every date listed here has been thoroughly researched and checked to ensure its accuracy.
