The slightly less hot 100countdown results

In recent years triple j have published a list of the 100 highest-ranking songs that didn’t make it into the Hottest 100 poll. This year, rather than simply putting the list on their website, they played the countdown live on the air.

All eight of the songs predicted by the Warmest 100 that didn’t make the Hottest were present, with Frank Oceans’ ‘Pyramids’ at #125, Japandroids’ ‘The House That Heaven Built’ at #123, The xx’s ‘Chained’ at #112, Kanye West’s ‘Mercy’ at #111, Van She’s ‘Idea of Happiness’ at #105, Something For Kate’s ‘Survival Expert’ at #103 and Haim’s ‘Forever’ and ‘Don’t Save Me’ at #106 and #101 respectively.

If you’re just wondering where the Parkway is, they got ‘Dark Days’ in at #135. Of the other upsets, Twinsy landed ‘Water Bombs’ at #163 and Bloc Party’s ‘Truth’ was at #172 and ‘Octopus’ in at #150. Cloud Nothings and Cat Power were still notable by their absence, however.

The Hottest 100 results can be found here. You can begin proclaiming that this was the better list… now.

amity came in at 107 so by that logic that means amity are better than japandroids.

Good to see some SFK, although a few more votes and we could have got Survival Expert into the 100, you goddamn sons of bitches.

that logic is flawed however when lisa came in at 92 and they didn't come anywhere in the top 100 buddy:cool:

I guess I should have voted. I would have voted for SFK. I think I nominated it in the 4zzz hot 100 poll from memory.

there was once a day when most of my votes featured in the 100, now they are mostly in the 101-200. i think society is out of touch with me,

Why, there are no children here at the four-H club, either! Am I so out of touch...? No, it's the children who are wrong.

Maybe your music taste has become less mainstream as you've got older.

That would probably be the case with 90+ per cent of music fans.

I'll get over it, but Paul is giving you the side-eye.

He'll probably write a song about you for the next album. Not that any of us will know it's about you anyway. Course, I'll still have to cut you.

Yeah, that's pretty much me. GY!BE and Lawrence English and No Anchor in the hottest 100? Never.

Also, I don't think Triple J gives much of a break to Brisbane bands unless they come from Mucho Bravado or Dew Process.
