With two days to go until the Hottest 100 2019 countdown, triple j has announced it will be doing it all again with the Hottest 100 of the Decade.
This special edition of the Hottest 100 series follows on from previous all-time countdowns including the ‘Hottest 100 of All Time’ (1998 & 2009), ‘Hottest 100 Australian Albums of All Time’ (2011) and ‘20 Years of the Hottest 100’ (2013).
Triple J is calling on all music lovers to celebrate the decade that was by creating a definitive list of the 2010s.
You can vote for your favourite songs throughout February and then join triple j in March as they countdown the Hottest 100 tracks of the decade.
Warning: getting your shortlist down to 10 songs isn’t going to be easy, because a lot happened in the 2010s. Here’s just a snippet:
- We witnessed the rise of once-in-a-generation artists like Frank Ocean, Lana Del Rey, Kendrick Lamar and Florence and the Machine
- Australian acts like Gotye, Sia, Tame Impala, Courtney Barnett and Tones and I took over the world
- Producers like Flume and Alison Wonderland went from their bedrooms to stadium shows
- In 2017, we saw hip hop overtake rock and pop as the most popular genre of music in the US
- Streaming services and social media flipped the industry on its head
- Viral took on a totally new meaning and pop music had a renaissance
- Beyoncé headlined Coachella
- The Avalanches, Daft Punk and Tool made comebacks
- We mourned the loss of some of our favourite performers: Mac Miller, Juice WRLD, Amy Winehouse, David Bowie, Prince, Chris Cornell
If you’re looking for votespiration, triple j will be revisiting the decade’s Hottest 100 countdowns and looking back at the musical moments that shaped the 2010s.
Stay tuned as they announce the Hottest 100 of the Decade dates soon. Then join triple j for their Hottest 100 of the Decade in March.
