Yep, hit pause on that VHS of Titanic, pull out that high-cut tank top, dust off those enormous platform shoes and grab the nearest pair of colour-tinted sunglasses – we’re going back 20 years and we’re going to unashamedly love every single minute of it.
Now, we are aware that you can easily head to the triple j website and see the full list of songs that made the countdown. If you wanna do that, then go for your life.
But we reckon it’s gonna be a whole lot more fun to listen to the whole thing and lose your mind when you hear that song you haven’t thought about in almost 20 years.
Caz Tran will be with you to count down the best songs of 1997 (well, what we all thought were the best songs of 1997 back then) from 12pm AEDT. Hear archival interviews, fresh chats with artists you haven’t heard from in a while, and so much 90s gold.
Hear the Hottest 100 of 1997 in full on Sunday 28 January from midday.
