Triple J Hottest 100 Of All Time

Just voted in the Triple J Hottest 100 of All Time. Some tough decisions were made. I’ve listed my choices in this post as well as the full shortlist of 25:

1. Nirvana – Smells Like Teen Spirit
2. Rage Against the Machine – Killing In The Name
3. Pixies, The – Where is my Mind?
4. Bright Eyes – First Day Of My Life
5. Mountain Goats, The – This Year
6. The Grates – Burn Bridges
7. The Shins – New Slang
8. Kimya Dawson – I Like Giants
9. Björk – Hyperballad
10. PJ Harvey – Good Fortune

11. Metallica – One
12. Guns N’ Roses – Estranged
13. Pulp – Common People
14. R.E.M. – Be Mine
15. Gnarls Barkley – Crazy
16. Spoon – The Way We Get By
17. Red Hot Chilli Peppers – Under the Bridge
18. Green Day – Longview
19. Pearl Jam – Go
20. Silverchair – Israel’s Son
21. Smashing Pumpkins, The – Today
22. John Denver – Leaving on a Jet Plane
23. Simple Minds – Don’t You (forget About Me)
24. Blind Melon – No Rain
25. Fleetwood Mac – Dreams

The list isn’t strictly ranked, other than the top 10 being the ones I submitted to the Hottest 100, and number one is not accident. Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit will absolutely, undoubtedly, be the number one song in this countdown. Unless enough smartarses vote for Joy Division 😉
