Rock music is a broad genre of popular music that originated as "rock and roll" in the United States in the early 1950s, and developed into a range of different styles in the 1960s and later, particularly in the United Kingdom and in the United States. It has its roots in 1940s and 1950s rock and roll, a style which drew heavily on the genres of blues, rhythm and blues, and from country music. Rock music also drew strongly on a number of other genres such as electric blues and folk, and incorporated influences from jazz, classical and other musical styles. Musically, rock has centered on the electric guitar, usually as part of a rock group with electric bass, drums, and one or more singers. Usually, rock is song-based music usually with a 4/4 time signature using a verse–chorus form, but the genre has become extremely diverse. Like pop music, lyrics often stress romantic love but also address a wide variety of other themes that are frequently social or political.

Triple J Hottest 100 annual music poll in Australia

The Triple J Hottest 100 is an annual music listener poll hosted by the government-funded, national Australian radio station, Triple J. The public is invited to vote for their favourite Australian and alternative music of the year, in an online poll conducted two weeks prior to the new year. Since its inception in 1989, the 100 most popular songs were counted down from 12pm on Australia Day. From 2018 however, the countdown has been held on the fourth weekend of January due to opposition to Australia Day's celebratory commemoration of British colonisation. On the day after the Hottest 100, Triple J plays the Hottest 200 from 10am.

The 2003 Triple J Hottest 100, announced on 25 January 2004, was the eleventh such countdown of the most popular songs of the year, according to listeners of the Australian radio station Triple J. As in previous years, a CD featuring 40 songs was released. A DVD, containing film clips of songs from the Hottest 100 was also released. A countdown of the videos of each song was shown on the ABC music series Rage in March.

The 1993 Triple J Hottest 100, counted down in January 1994, was the first countdown of the most popular songs of the year, according to listeners of the Australian radio station Triple J. As opposed to previous incarnations of the poll where listeners could vote on any track or song, the 1993 poll was the first poll to restrict voting to tracks released in that year. About 50,000 votes were counted for this countdown.

"The Nosebleed Section" is a song by the Australian hip hop music group Hilltop Hoods. It was a radio single from their 2003 album The Calling. In the Triple J Hottest 100, 2003 it placed at Number 9, in 2009 it was voted Number 17 in the Hottest 100 of All Time and in 2013 it was voted Number 4 in the Hottest 100 of the Past 20 Years, making it the highest placed Australian song and the highest placed hip-hop song in both countdowns as well as the highest placed song from the 21st century in the former, despite never being released as a physical single. It is one of their best-known songs and was a radio hit in 2004, even appearing on the Channel 9 police drama Stingers, but it was not an ARIAnet chart hit, which they did not attain until 2006 when they released "Clown Prince".
