Plans are already underway to hi-jack Triple M’s Ozzest 100 which was shamefully created to fill the space left by Triple J’s Hottest 100
In case you already didn’t know, Triple M has decided to create their very own version of the Hottest 100 which was moved away from Australia Day/Invasion Day as a show of respect towards Indigenous people in Australia.
The recent announcement has drawn a large amount of criticism from the Indigenous community as well as from people who are in support of Indigenous rights (basic moral respect). Now plans are underway to turn the Ozzest 100 into the Awkward 100.
A campaign is already underway to make sure that certain ‘educational’ hits make it to the top of the countdown. The Ozzest 100 is believed to be an all time Aussie music countdown and that means there are quite a few of these ‘educational’ songs to choose from.
Take a look at what some of the top songs may end up being.
- A.B Original – January 26
- Midnight Oil – Beds are burning
- Yothu Yindi – Treaty
- Goanna – Solid Rock
- Mau Power / Archie Roach – Freedom
- Warumpi Band – My Island Home
- Christine Anu – My Island Home
- Archie Roach – Took the children away
- Paul Kelly – From little things big things grow
- Gurrumul – Wiyathul
The move is also being torn to shreds on social media.
