Another song that should definitely find a spot in the list is.... something by MS MR. Perhaps 'Bones'.

My money is on that repulsive "Little Talks" song by the horribly named Of Monsters and Men.

The perfect mesh between indie-ness and mainstream-crossover, it is bound to snare a truckload of votes.

I still haven't voted, I'll probably need to add in 3 or 4 songs that aren't on the list of songs that JJJ want me to vote for. I still don't understand why voting for a Rihanna, Rita Ora or Calvin Harris song is discouraged, yet they would still include songs from the formulaic Foo Fighters on these lists. Reeks of snobbery.

I want Feels Like We Only Go Backwards to go high... Cracking tune.

Er, isn't their list just based on the songs that have been in their playlists in 2012? So if a song's not there, it just wasn't played much/at all on Triple J this year?

This might help us out - 100 Most Played Songs On Triple J In 2012 Revealed - Music News, Reviews, Interviews and Culture - Music Feeds

Bangarang will definitely be up there (which sucks, though it does hold the distinction of being the only brostep song that I don't outright hate), that Flume song will do well.

And, in one of the strangest realisations of my life, there is actually an Aussie hip-hop song I really like. Great chilled beat (even if it is straight out of Prince Paul's early De La-era playbook) and vocals that don't make me want to strangle kittens.

Allday x C1 - So Good - YouTube

Meanwhile, here's Rage's top 50 videos as voted by the populous. Actually pretty great list. I'm not even bothered by the #1, that's a hilarious video.

I must admit I'm surprised by how little I know on that list. For somebody who likes to think he's right up on the Aussie music scene, that's a tad embarrassing.

Cool that Alpine's on it twice though.

I stopped listening to Triple J in the middle of the year. It was a great idea.

I stopped listening to Triple J at the end of 2009. I haven't been enticed to go back.

I never really listened to Triple J to begin with. Stopped listening to radio in 2002, what with having the Internet and all.

The only reason I would be listening to it to begin with was if I was driving and didn't have my iPod or any CDs handy. I just had to knuckle up and make sure my iPod was definitely always charged.

I work at home, always have done. And somehow stuffing around with what I want to listen to when I'm busy and mainly just need noise on in the background... yeah, it's by default that I hear a certain amount of the radio. Besides, I find a certain level of irritation is a spur to creativity. It's like, the grit that makes the pearl.

Not sure if that's the one song of theirs I've heard, but the one I heard was pretty terrible. Cannot stand those vocals, and the music is just about as dull and ordinary as it gets.
