Ah, the 'forefathers' of indie rock. I must be an hour behind, makes sense.

Huh, do they actually play it on an hour delay in Queensland? I've given up on listening because this thread made me think I needed some Midnight Oil in my STRAYA DAY lieu day, but here's SPOILERZZZ then, the chart so far: Triple J’s Second Hottest 100, The Hottest 200 2013 – Live Updates - Music News, Reviews, Interviews and Culture - Music Feeds

I guess we do have a delay. It's not like I'm specially hanging out for this stuff, I just have jjj on most days when I am working, out of habit (yes, even today). This is why I speak from knowledge when I gripe about them.

Oh god, the Smith Street Band at 180. Now those guys are rolled-gold working class, Chavforit would like them.

1.49 million votes and Riptide is apparently the best song of 2013. Give me a fucking break. I actually hate it more than I really do because of how popular it is. It's not a terrible song, but it is just not that fucking good. Any fuckwit with floppy hair and an acoustic guitar could write it in five minutes. I would have been totally fine with Royals winning it. At least it's interesting, even if I'm not a big fan of it.

Really wanted to be on here and Twitter as well yesterday but we had no reception.

Listening to 200-101 now. Disgrace that New Slaves only got to 200. Cool to hear Giorgio By Moroder in here though. This presenter is a fucking idiot.

Love love love that song.

I like that song, although the stoned idiot who talks throughout gets really tiresome.

Yep. Fucking atrocious. And a good example of a blasé song making the countdown because it has the word fuck in a spot you don't expect it.

He typed his name into a Wu-Tang Clan name generator and got that.

This post is fucking fantastic. Thanks for the laughs.

At least "Lanterns" didn't make the top five or ten like some predictions suggested, though.
I was hoping we'd be spared Lanterns given MMM started smashing it, but alas not.

That lyric "caught in the middle" sounds so much like another song that I can't put my finger on... anyone got any idea?

This is my favourite London Grammar moment

I'll never forget when I saw Washed Out and Toro y Moi last year and EVERYBODY talked through Chet Faker's opening set. About three months later I'm pretty sure every wanker there was all "hurrr I saw Chet Faker before he was famous" and FUCK YOU because you thought he was shit boring at the time.
I like them both, though not as much as many of my peers. Chet Faker drummed and sang for Bonobo, which was cool.

Indeed.

Nothing by Courtney Barnett either, which was disappointing.

I always picture Birds of Tokyo's singer (no idea what he looks like) being like that guy in the Sopranos, Adrianna's ex boyfriend who fronts this used-to-be-cock-rock-now-sensitive-and-proggy band called Defiler.

Just fucking laughable that Riptide gets #1 while a song as accomplished as Jubilee Street doesn't even chart.

I doubt it will even be in the 100-200 list. I just do doubt it.

That Kings of Leon song that was just on was pretty decent actually.

Great to see Avant Gardener get to 140.

Still running behind here in Qld, but I do like Avant Gardener.
