I can't believe the Mall's Balls only got 4 SAs out of 5!

Enough of the putrid fucking Aussie hip hop in the hottest 100!

I call dibs on making the thread in B&C too.

Pretty interesting listening to the Hottest 100 from here in London, having been here for about 18 months, hearing most of the Australian content for the first time.

Begs the question: REALLY?!?!?

Soooo much garbage on the list this year, more than last year.

Eh, it's not that bad. It's at least listenable, even if the enjoyment level is like listening to myself ripping toilet paper slowly.

The list is always pretty underwhelming, but I'm not sure I can even see one song I genuinely like in the top 10, or even the top 20 this year. Also, that fucking Kanye song can get fucked, I don't know what the start of it was like but that last five or so minutes of noise/piano was an IDEA, not an original one at that, and not fucking good music by any stretch of the imagination. I can't believe how long it went for, and why anyone would vote for it, especially over the good hip-hop released in 2010. And holy shit, I can't believe Pendulum's "mix" of the ABC song actually got in - it's just so incredibly slack. It's one thing to cover something, another thing entirely to extend it and add drum and bass. What's the story behind it, anyway? If those boganerd favourites actually put effort into it, they're even worse than I already thought they were.

A very large 'meh' in the direction of the number 1.

Bonnie, i've decided, we have to meet before you move away, one way or another. this post reflects my feelings about the list this year perfectly. i could go into detail, but you've pretty much expressed all that i thought.

Being an old codger, I didn't listen to the 100, but it was enough to hear what made No. 1. If something that twee could make it to Number 1, then I weep for the future of this country...

And it was all I could do not to run over all the bogans wearing Aussie flags as capes yesterday. It would have done hell with my rating 1. I have never seen so many Aussie flags flying everywhere, on cars, on houses, on shops. This flag thing is a new century thing, I don't remember seeing any flags other than on official flag poles when I was growing up in the dark ages. Too bad I associate the flag with skips expressing bogan pride, grrr. Thus endeth the rant....

it's a bit ugly, i agree.

apparently it's illegal in America to wear their flag.

Saw too many Union Jacks for my liking, time to get a pair of scissors, cut it out of every flag and make it our official flag. Would look fantastic without that painful reminder dominating our national symbol.

yeah, there's a lot of things illegal in america that have to do with flags. though it's probably all for the best because it's so tacky. it doesn't stop people from wearing it as underpants or something though.
