Really quite surprised Green Day didn't get in. In some ways I'd think Time of Your Life would have been top five. There are some odd non-inclusions. A lot of complaining on Twitter about the lack of women in the list, but there were 940,000 votes cast so that's a little disingenuous.

ABSOLUTE FUCKING DISGRACE that Nosebleed Section was #4. Aussie hip-hop the fourth best song of the past 20 years? Get the fuck out of here.

Pretty solid list overall, I'd say. A LOT of great songs in there.



No REM is pretty surprising, given their stature as a loved alternative band. But maybe they were a victim of vote-splitting? Can't see Everybody Hurts making too many lists so votes were probably split over a bunch of other tunes.
In fairness - although REM had further triumphs with New Adventures in Hi-Fi and (kinda) Up, the aforementioned song doesn't make the 1993 cutoff. That probably hurt them. But someone like Bjork, whose entire solo career falls squarely inside the timeframe, and who used to be massive... oh how the mighty have fallen!

REM did so well in the Hottest 100 early on, but in the Hottest 100 of All Time done in 2009, I'm not sure they had a single song. No surprise they didn't make it this time - I just don't get why they've fallen off with the Triple J crowd when they've done nothing to lose their j-wanker cred. It's not like how U2 used to make the Hottest 100 but nowadays are widely loathed by the j-wankers.

And at least there were some women at all, compared to that 2009 All Time list that had NONE.

Fun fact: highest placing song from the 2009 All Time released between 1993-2012 that did not make this year's chart? Radiohead - Fake Plastic Trees, which was #28 in 2009. Also, in 2009, of songs eligible for this year's chart, Hallelujah (#3), Paranoid Android (#5), Last Goodbye (#7), and Everlong (#9) all placed higher than Wonderwall (#12).

Man, that 2009 all-time list is pretty bad, considering every song ever was eligible.

Maybe that was the problem. Constraints focus the mind.

We all know what the last thirteen years of their career look like, but the Triple J blind spot where U2 are concerned (hey, they'll play the Smiths, even now, quite often; not the Cure or REM though) is amusing. At their peak, on full throttle, U2 pissed all over pretty much anything on the playlist that you can think of.

The Cure's another band whose results in early Hottest 100s are sensational, yet might as well not even exist in Triple J land now. Robert Smith got into the Hottest 100 via Not in Love in 2010 at least.

Though as far as today's edition goes, The Cure didn't have anything worthwhile to qualify anyway. Wish just missed out on eligibility.

(Actually, no, wait, I'll come out and champion Friday I'm in Love - fuck da haterz - and it was eligible. Thinking about it, that's another song I'm surprised didn't make it, like the Manics' If You Tolerate This.)

There's some stuff in there that really makes me happy, like Berlin Chair, ! (The Song Formerly Known As), and Everlong being so high. Because Memories. And I'm really glad to see No Aphrodisiac and Gangsta's Paradise make it, not that there's any big surprise over it, but they were on my list.

Also I like Jeff Buckley

Your fondness for No Aphrodisiac, not Jeff Buckley, is what should be hidden in small text.

Shit, I just realised, no Arcade Fire either.

Ok, I guess their career is still newish (!) depending on how you judge 2003/04 on to be.

...wow. This is definitely surprising. I guess their vote must've got a bit split?

That's a pretty good description of The Whitlams right there.

(Actually, I don't know if I'd hate it at all if I heard it for the first time today, but when I hear it, I immediately just have flashbacks to how much I thought it sucked when I was eleven.)

It's funny, I'm the exact opposite - I love it (and the rest of Eternal Nightcap) largely because I'm pretty sure it was the only album my parents listened to in 1998. And that could really go either way on forming an opinion, but after seeing Eternal Nightcap performed in full a few years ago, I still think it's great.
