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. [1] [2]

A double CD featuring 32 of the songs was released. This compilation was, and many of the ones to follow in future years were, some of the highest selling CDs in Australia.

Triple J Hottest 100 Australian annual music listener poll

The Triple JHottest 100 is an annual music listener poll hosted by the publicly-funded, national Australian radio station, Triple J. Members of the public are 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. From 1989 to 2018, the 100 most popular songs were counted down from 12 pm on Australia Day. Since then the countdown has been held on the fourth weekend of January, due to increasing controversy about Australia Day regarding its marking of the colonisation of Australia and dispossession of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander land. On the day after the Hottest 100, Triple J plays the Hottest 200 from 10 am.
