Update 06/02/19: Here Are The Results From The 1998 Hottest 100 Revote – Updated Live
Just when you think you can’t re-write history, Double J come along and give you the chance to re-write what is deemed as one of the greatest Hottest 100 scandals of all time – centred around the 1998 Hottest 100 and its winner, The Offspring‘s ‘Pretty Fly (For A White Guy)’.
Triple J‘s sister station aired the entirety of the 1998’s Hottest 100 yesterday, and once the countdown ended, they announced that they’re giving you the chance to vote again for the 1998 Hottest 100 for their own ‘in-hindsight’ countdown.
However, it doesn’t work in the same way we’re used to voting for Hottest 100 countdowns. As opposed to the ten songs you get usually, you only get one vote. Yep, just one and you cannot undo it. On top of that, you only get to vote for the 100 songs that made the original countdown.
Voting closes on Monday, 4th February and Zan Rowe will be counting down the top 10 votes on Wednesday, 6th February from 9am on Double J.
In case you missed it, the 2018 Hottest 100 aired on Sunday, with Sydney band Ocean Alley taking out the number one spot with ‘Confidence.’
In the meantime…
