I definitely think it's possible, triple j played S&T a fair bit and I think most of their fanbase will give them a vote.

Mumford and Sons wasn't really in the conversation the year it won. When it leaked they had won there was genuine shock.

yeah, except that Gotye winning last year was the most foregone conclusion, nothing had come even close. And like Nap said, the only reason M&S was obvious was because they accidentally revealed it.

Those conditions you're talking about - JJJ smashing a song, and then it being picked up? They apply to Thrift Shop, as well as quite a few other songs this year. Little Talks is one of the favourites, but not a foregone conclusion.

This song is for the guy who keeps yelling from the balcony, and it's called "We Hate You, Please Die".

mumford and sons was paying $1.50 before it was leaked. it was a foregone conclusion. won by more votes than any song has ever...

the problem is:
i used to thin k that the hottest 100 represented the listeners of triple j.
then mumford & sons.
now it's just a music poll for morons.
i'm telling you, ke$ha and taylor swift. put money on them.

This. I'm not sure if any future winner of the Hottest 100 could be as bad as Big Jet Plane, it sounds like it was written by a five year old and sung by two manic depressives who forgot to take their meds.

Quite possibly the most boring song I've ever heard. Man, I was so mad. I didn't even like Rock It that much either, but when it got down to the top 2, I was begging for it to be the winner over BJP.

triple j Hottest 100 betting 2012: 'Little Talks' Vs 'Thrift Shop’
so its a toss up between what i can only assume is a novelty song that would not have been given a second listen if not about op shops and a song that sounds like a bad version of home by edward sharpe and the magnetic zeros. i guess i shouldn't be surprised.

Those two bands are completely different. Arcade Fire are like "where's the car", and OM&M are like "where's the car".

I think OM&M should not be written off before seeing them live.
I currently rank their corner show in my top 5 best performances I have seen
