Little Lion man can win, Art Vs Science were robbed! Not that I think either song were probably the two totally best of the year. Parlez Vous Francais? is a great song, but they were pretty popular. Which is seemingly the way the hottest 100 is going these days.

At least Sex On Fire couldn't make the list this year

Good to see plenty of Florence, A Crooked Vultures tune and some Regina.

Still a lot of wierdo JJJ stuff in there. Pretty forgettable top 100 really. '05 was much better.

Muse fans came out in force despite them all seeming quite lukewarm to their new album.

There's a lot of very good songs on that list.

YouTube - Official 'Parlez-Vous Francais?' clip - Art vs Science

not enough Oasis though, you're right.

I'm surprised and a little embarrased that I don't know most of these songs.

I'm a bit surprised to see La Roux, I would have thought they were too bubblegum for Triple J. But then I don't really have a clue about what's popular on Triple J. We very rarely have it on at work, I can stand it only for a while before it starts to do my head in.

So U2 are officially off their radar huh?

They haven't been on Triple J's radar since about 1993!

Well I don't know how much U2 were actually played on Triple J since 1993, but they came second in the 2000 poll with Beautiful Day though, didn't they? And no. 38 with Vertigo in 2004.

Beautiful Day in 2000, from what I've been told (wasn't paying attention to Triple J at the time), was pretty much the result of an online fan action.

... can't help but wonder if the depths of Interference may shed some light on that!

what is this "fundie bluegrass" you speak of?

personally i think half the reason the song became popular is because it has fuck in the lyrics.

Well, they've a bit of a bluegrassy vibe going on and some of the lyrics in some of their songs are kind of fundie. My main complaint is that they're boring as all hell, though; completely unlistenable music for bores. "Fundie bluegrass" is just fun hyperbole.

and just quickly - you all think this is bad.

wait until Triple M's Greatest 500 Rock Songs countdown finishes.

i won't post the list until it's complete, because it will deaden the impact it has on your eyes.

but it's bad.

I have a hard time seeing how it could be worse.
