So according to Triple J listeners the 90s were the greatest decade in music? Seven out of top ten songs if I'm not mistaken. And three tragic early deaths in the top four.

And I realise that this is just a popularity contest, but... Foo Fighters? Two Jeff Buckley songs?

No U2 or REM in the Top 100 at all then?

exactly. i'm not one to go "zomg u2 aren't in the list!! bomb their houses!" or anything but it surprises me that as you said, there's no u2 or r.e.m. though i knew what would be #1. having heard the song again a few days ago for the first time in years, i was reminded all over again how overrated the song is.

Yeah, very disappointing top ten. It is, however, as the Kingsmill bloke said, a most "favourite" top 100 - but Jeff Buckley, honestly. Can't get anymore lightweight than than. Might as well have Guy Sebastian or WezKa or Damien Leith in there. Or maybe not them. But Jason Mraz maybe?

That RATM song has made me cringe every time I've heard it.

And the absence of U2 is horrible.

I like to think that due to the vast number of famous songs U2 have, votes were diluted amongst all the classics, One, Streets, BD, Mysty Ways, Lemon and Desire etc...

Could have been worse. Nice to see solid results there for Rage, Hilltop Hoods, Radiohead...

I really don't like Nirvana, or grunge altogether really.

U2 should've at least been there somewhere, as well as REM but nooo ...

It's confirmed that Triple J have some sort of deadly obsession with Radiohead, it's that scary. Just out of curiousity I found this thing where it had the presenters and musicians top 10 and Radiohead featured basically in all the lists.

U2 had 3 entries in JJJ's last all-time countdown in '98. How things have changed for the worse.

I remember The Sweetest Thing featured in the '98 Top 100 edition.

I somehow have this urge to ring them up and ask why they don't play U2 anymore, I can imagine them using something cliched ala 'Bono's an arsehole' or 'U2 are sell-outs!!11!!11!!!' and then i'll just hand them a copy of NLOTH.

I'm guessing it was probably Vertigo that did it though.

Yeah, though Vertigo did finish 36th in the '04 countdown, extraordinary considering JJJ did not actually play the song at all.

Pretty surprising I guess, that gives me an idea ... I'm gonna vote for Magnificent when the top 100 of '09 voting begins.

I will personally march down to JJJ, go through their computer files and delete every instance of a vote for Magnificent

You can only vote for songs that have been released as singles, right? If not then i'd just vote for Unknown Caller.
