The 2014 Triple J Hottest 100 was announced on Australia Day, 26 January 2015. It was the 22nd countdown of the most popular songs of the year, as chosen by the listeners of Australian radio station Triple J. It was won by "Talk Is Cheap", one of three songs that Chet Faker had in the top 10 (the others being "1998" and "Gold").
Voting commenced in mid-December 2014, and closed on 18 January 2015. Voters nominated ten songs that were released between December 2013 and November 2014 and submitted them through the Triple J website.In total, over 2 million votes were cast, breaking the previous record set in 2012. The year's countdown was notable for having seven Australian artists in the top ten and the top three positions being awarded to Australians, the first year for both to have occurred.
BuzzFeed campaigned for Taylor Swift's song "Shake It Off" as a protest against Triple J's exclusion of the song from their shortlist of songs,but the track was eventually disqualified. If the song would have been allowed for inclusion, it would have been ranked 12th.

The Triple JHottest 100 is an annual music listener poll hosted by the publicly-funded, national Australian youth 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.
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 2008 Triple J Hottest 100 was announced on Australia Day, 26 January 2009. It was the sixteenth countdown of the most popular songs of the year, as chosen by the listeners of Australian radio station, Triple J.
The Triple J Hottest 100 of All Time was a music poll conducted in 2009 amongst listeners of Australian youth radio network Triple J. Over half a million votes were compiled, with Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" collecting the highest number of votes. Voters could submit a list of up to ten different songs as well as nominating one of these as their "all-time" favourite song. It was the fifth such poll organised by Triple J, following similar polls in 1989, 1990, 1991 and 1998. Initially, all songs were eligible for the annual Triple J Hottest 100. However, from 1993 onward, only songs released in the previous year were permitted. Thus, the Hottest 100 of All Time is conducted via a separate vote, held irregularly to reflect listeners' favourite songs across all eras. The 2009 list was designed to reflect the twentieth anniversary of the Hottest 100's inception. The Triple J Hottest 100 of all time was broadcast over two nights on ABC TV's music show Rage. However, certain songs were omitted from the broadcast because they were never made into music videos.
The 2009 Triple J's Hottest 100 Volume 17, was announced on Australia Day 26 January 2010. It is the seventeenth countdown of the most popular songs of the year, as chosen by the listeners of Australian radio station Triple J.

Voting began on 6 June, and concluded on the evening of 26 June. The countdown was carried out over two weeks, starting on 28 June 2011, and finishing at 5pm on 10 July, with Brisbane band Powderfinger's 2000 album, Odyssey Number Five, announced at No. 1.
