Have a peek at this year’s Hottest 100 with these juicy stats

triple j’s Hottest 100 begins Saturday 22 January at midday.

As a little treat, here’s a peek at the results. No spoilers here, just cold hard stats.

  • More than 2.5 million votes were submitted this year!
  • 25 artists will be making their Hottest 100 debut
  • 8 songs in the countdown were uploaded to triple j Unearthed this year
  • A f*cked up year: you’re going to hear 102 f-bombs across the countdown (as many as the last two countdowns combined)
  • Despite being the middle of winter here, August was the hottest month, with the most amount of entries
  • 3 artists will join the 15-Songs-Or-Over Club across all Hottest 100 annual countdowns

To find out more, tune into triple j tomorrow from 10 am local time, as the party gets started playing tracks that landed at 200-101. Then from 12pm AEDST on Saturday 22 Jan for the Hottest 100 songs of the year.

You can listen to the Hottest 100 on the triple j app (iPhone and Android), FM radio, digital radio, and on triple j’s website, and follow along via Instagram, Facebook, TikTok, and Twitter. After the countdown, you can chuck on our Hottest 100 playlists on Apple Music, YouTube, and Spotify.

Then on Sunday 23 January, go back in time with Double J for the Hottest 100 of 2001. Relive Hottest 100 history as you recover from the day before!
