Triple J May Change The Date Of The Hottest 100

Youth music radio station Triple J’s Hottest 100 is one of the institutions of January 26th, the day that for many citizens represents Australia Day, an anniversary celebration of the landing of the First Fleet.

In the last couple of years, the mystique and mystery of Aussie youth radio station Triple J’s Hottest 100 has been dampened somewhat by the easy availability of voter statistics — Facebook posts, Instagram screenshots and Twitter lists of listeners’ top 10 music tracks of the year.

Warmest 100 Won't Go Ahead This Year After Triple J Clamps Down On Social Vote Sharing

The Triple J Hottest 100 is an institution. On Australia Day, most young Aussies gets together with some beers and a barbecue to listen to the 100 best songs of the last 12 months counted down on their radios. That institution was spoofed last year when some clever programmers realised they could predict the countdown based on everyone’s social sharing, and managed to nail a high percentage of the tracks, including the number one position. Triple J cracked it at the programmers, and cracked down on social sharing to the point that the Warmest 100 is impossible this year. Nick Drewe of the Warmest 100 talks to Gizmodo about the cool-down.
