Back in 2006, The Living End charted at #53 with their song 'Wake Up'. This placing meant that The Living End were the first band to have placed in 10 consecutive Hottest 100s in a row. While this is currently the highest record for consecutive entries, this small list aims to collect a list of the artists who have had the most consecutive entries. Two lists are provided here; one for artists who have appeared 5 times or more, and another for those who have featured in 4 consecutive countdowns.
The only artists so far to achieve these consecutive appearances, and have no other songs chart in other years, have been Butterfingers, The Butterfly Effect, Korn, Machine Gun Fellatio, Rebecca's Empire and The Whitlams.
Appearing in any countdown is an impressive feat, however these artists have managed to feature in 5 or more countdowns consecutively
The last artist to enter this list was Ian Kenny in 2010, after featuring in 5 consecutive countdowns from 2006 to 2010.
