    I would make some facetious comment about Aussies and how high they can count, but I guess in this case they did at least aim to get to 100. I guess they got a bit bored??

    It's a top 100 every year, and those are the winners...

    They aren't all there though.

    Smells Like Teen Spirit would be the winner IMO, even if I don't particularly like any of the songs in the original list.

    Where the Wild Roses Grow for mine from that list, even though it's not even the best song on the album. Have a soft spot for Wonderwall though.

    I raised my eyebrows when I saw "Love Will Tear Us Apart" was No.1. As much as I loved Joy Division as a punk when I was 15 it's not the sort of song you expect a commercial survey like this would throw up as winner

    It's not a commercial survey. Triple J is a government owned station with no ads.


    Although the music on it lately has resembled a commercial station.
