I actually loved Catch My Disease. I think he was in on the joke.

Hindley Street is a pretty good song as far as Powderfinger go. Partly because it's a street I pass through on a fairly regular basis.

If I hear that fucking 'I Can't Take It' song (which along with 'Is It A Banger' will probably make the top 20) again, I am probably going to go on a murder spree.

So my regular hottest 100 friends and I realised two things:

1. We're not likely to recognise much of the songs this year based on the likely choices
2. Aussie Day is on a Monday, with work on Tuesday impeding our ability to get smashed whilst listening

Solution: we're making our own playlist on Sunday to listen to on shuffle. Specific shots to drink when your song choice comes up depends on how close it is to the end. Plus BBQ and sleepover at our new digs. Result!

What's everyone else up to, triple j wise?

That sounds awesome man. I'll be at Rainbow (donko) festival again. Like you I doubt I'll recognise many songs.

This is definitely a stealworthy idea.

And I have bugger all idea what Triple J has been hyping this year. I fully expect to not recognise the vast majority of stuff.

There is a campaign underway to get Shake it Off into the Hottest 100, since it wasn't included in the shortlist.

Well that worked for Beautiful Day in 2000, didn't it?

Personally I think most such campaigns are pretty silly.

And Vertigo made in 2004 despite not being played at all.

My top ten picks for the JJJ hottest 100

Can't stand Swifty so hopefully this campaign falls flat. At the end of the day, for all their flaws, JJJ are still far more noble than other popular music stations in Australia.

That campaign has gotten wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyy out of hand. People are taking it so seriously. I've been in like five twitter debates. Feminists are absolutely furious, 1 that she wasn't included in the first place and 2 that the Hottest 100 is sexist. Swift fans are furious at J's elitism. JJJ fans are the funniest though, they are so disgusted that a Taylor Swift song could dare to be in "their" countdown that they're really flipping their shit. It's so entertaining.

And Inte your argument is complete bullshit. JJJ is pretty much as mainstream as Fox, NOVA, MMM et al. You're kidding yourself if you think otherwise. Have a look at the history of the Hottest 100. Last year's top three were all played constantly on "commercial" radio as well. Lorde was number two. She's best friends with Tay Tay. How come Lorde's alright but Taylor Swift isn't? Sex on Fire is mainstream as hell. That won.
