Key Dates
VOTING OPENS: 14th Dec 2011
VOTING CLOSES: 16th Jan 2012
THE COUNTDOWN: 26th Jan 2012


It's that time of the year again, voting opens in an hour and a half (12pm EST) for Triple J's Hottest 100 for 2012.

Assuming we're all not dead by the apocalypse, it should be a good day like usual getting crunk and listening to the countdown on Australia Day.

What will you be voting for? What song do you think will come in at #1?

Weeeeeeee! It's that time of year again.

Scrillex OH MY GOD will be my vote, if it is indeed a 2011 track.

I didn't recognise nearly as many songs on the list as last year, so I mostly just chose ones I've listened to or downloaded because I didn't hate it.

Also after I finished I noticed you can hit the little 'play' button on each song to listen to it on youtube if you need to get your brain jogged.

So here's my shortlist so far.. 30 songs which I need to cut down to 10.

Architecture In Helsinki - Contact High

Austra - Lose It

Is there any chance that the top two songs won't be the Gotye one and Pumped Up Kicks? I don't follow these countdown things but it seems kind of likely.

I really loved the Wombats album and M83 so I voted twice for them. The only song I forgot to add was The National - Exile Vilify

Also I don't really understand the craze over Skrillex. I really hope he isn't in the top 10.

I don't even know who these people are let alone what the songs are. I suppose you get then when you stop listening to the radio.
