triple j Hottest 100 of 2021: here are all the songs in the countdown

Here are all the tracks that triple j listeners voted for, from Doja Cat to Gang Of Youths to The Wiggles

Here are all the songs in the triple j Hottest 100 of 2021, which the Aussie youth broadcaster counted down today (January 22).

Voting for the 2021 countdown closed on Monday, with algorithmic predictor 100 Warm Tunas tipping The Wiggles and their Like A Version cover of Tame Impala’s ‘Elephant’ to win. The Wiggles ultimately beat The Kid LAROI and Justin Bieber‘s ‘Stay’ to top the countdown, marking the first time a cover has ever taken out the Hottest 100.


Ahead of the Hottest 100, triple j have released some facts and figures about the countdown – 25 artists made their debut in the Hottest 100, and eight of the 100 songs were triple j Unearthed uploads.

There are 102 instances of the word ‘fuck’ across the Hottest 100 of 2021 – as many as the last two countdowns combined – and three artists marked their 15th song making any Hottest 100 countdown.

Yesterday, in a first for the station, triple j counted down the Hottest 200-101. Narrowly missing the Hottest 100 at Number 101 was NME 100 member MAY-A with ‘Time I Love To Waste’.
