The songs that almost made the Hottest 100

You already know which songs made it to the Hottest 100 for 2011 and which songs were most played by the team at triple j in 2011, now we have yet another list for you – the Hottest 101-200.

The list of the less favoured, yet still reasonably hot, tunes reveals just how close we came to tragedy with songs including Nero’s Aaron Carter tribute Crush On You and S.Mouse’s classic Slap My Elbow both making the list.

Both Nero and Justice managed to get three tracks into the second tier list, which also includes 46 local tunes that didn’t receive quite enough of the 1.3 million votes cast in the annual poll to make it into the Hottest 100 countdown on Australia Day.
