I noticed that there isn’t a thread yet, so here we go.

It’s not looking like like it’ll be a flash one this year, with some of the contenders being the epitome of bland (Dean Lewis and Amy Shark) and the epitome of a dickhead (Fisher). There’s also the Gambino meme, and Drake and Post Malone are unfortunately quite a chance.

This is as good a place as any to leave this; the hottest 100 songs to have missed the hottest 100. Some absolute legendary tracks in here from the Foo Fighters, Pearl Jam, Oasis, Radiohead and more.

Good topic, looking @ the list there are a lot of songs I wouldn't argue with being left out. Pretty much anything from Foos or PJ would feature for me, have posted Disarm b4 and Silverchair have at least a couple that should have made it.

Linkin Park - Numb!

SAN MARCOS my number 1 song of the year. Bit of an odd song but it just keeps getting better the further you go into the song and belting out the end is a great sing-a-long.
I can't believe I voted for Drake... never thought I'd see the day. But its just so damn catchy

I have seen the 100 Warm Tunas 2018 prediction playlist and the countdown seems to be turning more and more into a Triple J "Unearthed 100" every year since about 2014.

I used to enjoy the year's snapshot of popular global alternative music the Hottest 100 would provide, with some Australian tracks scattered throughout the countdown to make it uniquely “Triple J”. However recent countdowns provide minimal insight into what is actually making waves across the globe, with voters preferring to favour generic local artists simply because they are Australian.

Would anyone care or listen to The Rubens, Vera Blue, Mallrat, Ball Park Music or Meg Mac if they were from the UK or South Africa say? Absolutely no chance.

Just a reflection on what the ratio of music they play on triple J now. Plenty of home grown stuff. Im sure the percent would have only gone up.

DaRenegade as we are getting closer to the countdown I'm getting more interested. I had no intention of making a prediction this year, but I think I will in the end. Are you going to do won, especially after your success of last year?

A question for everyone, how do you think Trophy Eyes will finish in the end?
