Vote for Green Day in Double J 1998 Countdown

Recommended Posts

aydge89

So in Australia they do a Hottest 100 countdown every year as voted by listeners on the Triple J radio station. On their companion station Double J they play the Hottest 100 from 20 years ago, being 1998 this year. Some people weren't happy that Pretty Fly for a White Guy made it to number one, so they're doing a revote for all the songs that made it into the Hottest 100 and they're going to reveal the top 10 based on votes next week.

Green day had 2 entries - The Grouch and Time of your Life, so you can vote for either. Surprisingly The Grouch made it higher than Time of your life.

My main memory of PFFAWG is when I heard a girl in high school use that phrase to describe some guy.  I knew the song was over at that point.

There's actually a lot of good choices (GD, Living End, Offspring, Foo Fighters) . So much better than what's been in recent countdowns.

I don't think the songs had to be singles to be on the list. It is kind of a strange one to include...maybe their infamous performance of it over there was the reason :lol:
