Triple J are continuing to crunch the numbers following the broadcast of their much-frothed Hottest 100, with the stations’ latest in-depth analysis focusing on a comparison of taste between the two main genders.
We already knew that more women than men voted in this year’s big countdown (51% vs 48%), but now the J’s have gone ~deeper~ to discover whether there was much of a difference between the tunes that tickled each genders’ tunerag.
And it turns out, there was a fairly big one.
Triple J‘s Hottest 100 gender comparison revealed that, although both males and females equally voted Kendrick Lamar’s ‘HUMBLE.’ to the #1 spot, as well as PNAU at #6 and Khalid at #12, the rest of the votes differed pretty significantly.
Vera Blue was definitely more of a hit with the ladies, scoring two songs in the top 20 tunes most-voted for by Aussie lasses, but the ‘Mended’ singer didn’t figure into the dudes’ top 20 at all.
There was also way more Aussie artists in the girls’ top 20, due to a preference for female solo artists like Meg Mac, Alex The Astronaut and Lorde.
The ladies also had more love for Angus & Julia Stone, Thundamentals, The Jungle Giants and Ball Park Music than the gents, who preferred the likes of Post Malone, Big Shaq, The Smith Street Band, The Killers and Baker Boy.
