Oasis Tops Triple J’s Hottest 100 ’20 Years’ Edition

Drumroll, please! After an epic weekend strolling down memory lane, indie tastemakers triple j have finally revealed their number 1 pick of tunes from the last 20 years, and taking out the top honour is the rather controversial choice of Oasis‘ 1995 classic Wonderwall.

The countdown has been rolling all weekend, with 50 songs revealed per day, in celebration of 20 years of tasty Hottest 100 action. Lots of old favourites safely took their place in the list, like Foo Fighters at number 6, with Everlong and The White Stripes in number 2 position with Seven Nation Army, but Oasis couldn’t be stopped, with the Britpop staples claiming the number 1 spot.

Aussie favourites Powderfinger made a strong showing, placing at number 10 spot with My Happiness, as well as These Days at 8, taking us back to that point in 2000 where you couldn’t swing a dead cat without hearing the ‘Finger playing on jjj, and it wouldn’t be a Hottest 100 without an appearance from Gotye and Kimbra‘s worldwide smash Somebody That I Used To Know.

If you missed the live countdown, don’t worry – the Hottest 100 ’20 Years’ edition is sure to be released as an album at some point, so you can relive the classics until next summer comes around and we count down the Hottest 100 of 2013.
