The triple j Hottest 100 countdown continues to be a culturally important moment for many Australians from those who are there to have fun to those who will proudly exclaim they know what number 1 will be after hearing songs 100-2.
It appears that some segments of triple j listeners have been forgotten during the annual countdown, a segment that is defined by having not listened to the station for the last five years.
During the musical countdown, one such community member, Jennifer Mein (32), interrupted the songs her friends were specifically gathered to listen to in order to let them know she’d never heard of it.
“I don’t know any of these songs, how do you all know them?” asked Mein, who believes Matt Okine and Alex Dyson still host triple j breakfast show.
“Isn’t G-Flip like a Danish breakfast?”
Mein proceeded to criticise her friends for listening to the music that was unknown to her as she chooses to spend her commutes listening to podcasts about brutal murders like a normal person.
“Oh hang on, Bulls on Parade I know this one. What’s this doing in here?”
