THISBeautiful Day, Groovejet & Teenage Dirtbag were all ARIA #1 towards the end of the year and J-friendly enough, not out-n-out pop. Not all that surprising. Teenage Dirtbag had a bit of a school passout/friends forever vibe to it then as well.
U2 were in their J tail end then. Beautiful Day just had that Insta-banger cut through, but it was becoming harder for them to feature.
Were you a JJJ listener back then?It's really odd hearing Coldplay in the top 10. I guess they were pretty heavily featured on JJJ until Viva La Vida came out (Clocks and Fix You featured in the Hottest 100 of their release years).
I was a bit young back then and, yeah, Parachutes and A Rush of Blood... were quality.Were you a JJJ listener back then?
Their first two albums were great.
Shake It Off got booted because KFC actively put up a promotion to encourage people to vote for it. Not only is that a big no-no from the ABC, it's blatant vote fixing. Triple J would've allowed her in otherwise.The Hottest 100 has always had meme songs like Teenage Dirtbag or Pretty Fly or even Big Jet Plane to keep it interesting but WAP was absolutely a bridge too far, should have been Swift'd from the countdown.
