The Coldest 100 was the creation of Andrew Sholl on Twitter in 2016 and has been the Giddy Uncle of Triple J’s Hotest 100 ever since. Anyone can have a guess at the hottest song of the year, but who has ever nominated the Bunnings theme or Kylie Minogue performing her version of Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep?
Andrew only does this on Twitter (he has a real job) and releases his Coldest 100 in parallel with what ever number Triple J is up too.
The Coldest 100 can best be described as questionable songs by Australians and about Australia. So Andrew Sholl sat down with me at The Madame Frou Frou Cafe to sample a sixpack of his 100 cold ones.
Here are a selection of 2019 Coldest 100 entries on YouTube. A list of The Coldest 100 from 100 to 75 is below. You’ll have to wait till January 27th to find out the
worst coldest of The Coldest 100.
Here is the entire Coldest 100 as a Youtube playlist. (you have been warned)

Bunga Bunga 51 brings you all the hope and excitement of 2019. Thus making you really nostalgic for 2018 almost immediately.
Tim Ferguson & Maynard or Maynard & Tim Ferguson, but probably all four of them, have the starts and the smarts to show you a good time in January as we venture into a very certain uncertain political landscape.
Maynard is starting a new Saturday night of retro grooves in Sydney at Red Bar in March and Tim is taking his new solo show on tour across Australia.
Bunga Bunga 51 also leads you down the comedy back alleys less travelled as we meet Richard Wilkins, an unattended chicken and wake up to smell the cupcakes (or is that onions?).
