Voting Opens for Triple J’s Hottest 100 – And there’s some Australia Decides artists on the list
It’s that time of year again – the voting has opened for Triple J’s Hottest 100, and this year, a few Australia Decides artists have made it on to the list of songs to vote for.
For those of you who don’t know, Triple J’s Hottest 100 is Australia’s biggest music countdown, and usually airs from 12pm AEDT on the Saturday of Australia Day’s long weekend. In 2021, the broadcast will be held on Saturday, 23 January.
The Australia Decides artists who have made the list include Didirri’s ‘Raw Stuff’, Jaguar Jonze’s ‘Rabbit Hole’, and even Montaigne’s ‘Don’t Break Me’.
Didirri’s ‘Raw Stuff’ came fourth at Australia Decides in February, with a total of 63 points, and Jaguar Jonze’s ‘Rabbit Hole’ came sixth, with a total of 46 points. Montaigne’s winning entry came out with a total of 107 points.
Alongside their Australia Decides songs, Didirri’s ‘Don’t Fight With What You’re Fighting For’, and Jaguar Jonze’s ‘Deadalive’, ‘Murder’, and ‘Rising Sun’, all made the list.
Of course, just because a song isn’t on the list doesn’t mean you can’t vote for it, meaning that you can manually add any song to your shortlist, so long as it was released between 1 December 2019 and 30 November 2020, meaning that almost every song from Australia Decides this year can be manually added.
