@panzade,
From you Panz, that's a compliment. You have to remember though that the Js have been promoting alternative music since the mid 1970s, rather than pop or mainstream rock. I'd say they are largely responsible for the explosion of interesting oz music since the early 80s, merely by giving airplay to Australian indie acts and exposing them to a wider audience, which in turn gave the artists the confidence to hock their wares overseas.

Dempsey's top 10 are interesting - but only one Australia artist. I'm gonna go through them all and see if anyone else has more juxtaposition than Dylan and Slayer....

Some of the celeb top tens are pretty cool - I love it when someone name checks a song for the same reasons I think it's great, but have never found anyone who agrees with me.

I was surprised though that Kermit the Frog's 'Rainbow Connection' got at least two mentions.

@dadpad,
I've seen so many great radio personalities move on from the Jays, but someone new always fills the gap. I get my Myf fix on Spicks and Specks. And I like Marieke Hardy. I was sad when Mikey and Paul left, and Adam and Wil. And Jay. And Maynard. And Arnold Frollowes. And Doug Mulray. And Cherry Ripe. Stuart Matchett. George Wayne. Laurie Zion. Sheesh. 33 years on i'm still listening. I'd love to find a discussion group talking about the music they used to play in the 70 to mid 80s - there's so much stuff I liked that I never knew the name of and have never been able to find.

Well the poll has closed and the jays are working backwards from 100

here's the list so far:

http://www.abc.net.au/triplej/hottest100_alltime/countdown/cd_71-80.htm
http://www.abc.net.au/triplej/hottest100_alltime/countdown/cd_81-90.htm
http://www.abc.net.au/triplej/hottest100_alltime/countdown/cd_91-100.htm

Kind of surprising. I don't think they can call themselves 'youth' radio any more....

I'm listening to the live stream now:

60 Hurt - Johnny Cash!!! I love this song can't believe that nearly 20,000, 000 others do!

59 One crowded hour - Augie March
Australian. Popular in 2005, good song, was voted best for that year on the hottest 100 - which surprised me then as it does now

I like this band, I've met them a couple of times, once in the early 90s when they were supporting Grant Lee Buffalo. Had a nice long chat to the bass player after their set - I had never heard of them and just stood their smiling while they played, it was kind of like live at Pompeii Floyd, atmospheric songs that you couldn't tell whether they were anarchic jams or highly structured mini-symphonies. Eventually evolved into a quirkly alt pop/rock band

58 Around the world - Daft Punk
Never been a huge fan, and prefer better, faster, stronger to this track. People's tastes are always interesting - I can't imagine anyone putting this in their personal top ten of all time, but a lot must have.

57

46 and 2 - Tool

Tool have a hard core fan base, I've never really got into them, they strike me as intelligent prog metal but a little hard to get passionate about.

56 Lover you should have come over - Jeff Buckley

another act people get passionate about that I can take or leave (I kind of liked his version of Hallelujah).

That's his second appearance, so I'm guessing he has at least two more entries. Jeff Buckley responsible for four of the best 100 songs of all time? Na.

54 Close To You - The Cure


I like the Cure, but again I ask "Who would put this in their personal top 10?"

@hingehead,
53 Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd

PPPFFFT (coffee on screen), yeah I like it but it's hard to believe the J audience would vote for it.

Man I want to see the demographics on the voters!

@hingehead,
52 ( I think, been tinkering with openfire and distracted) Bullet with butterfly wings - Smashing Pumpkins.

Ok this one I understand, might have been in my top 100 at one point. You move on from songs don't you?

@hingehead,
Oops I was distracted

52 was Berlin Chair by You Am I (another Australian alt act - this song is notable in that it inspired the 'chair' part of Silverchair's name. I think the other part was inspired by a song called Sliver by a band like Helmet or Tool - too lazy to look it up.

That's it till 4pm local time. Thanks for listening
