Jump to navigation Jump to search

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").[1]

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.[2] 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,[3] but the track was eventually disqualified from the countdown.[4]
