Triple J fans are angry about a social media campaign to get tragically unhip pop star Taylor Swift’s Shake It Off into this year’s Hottest 100. But is Taylor Swift really more embarrassing than these songs that actually made it into the countdown?

Triple J might think Tay Tay will hurt the integrity of the Hottest 100, but honestly, she can’t be any worse than these ghosts of countdowns past…
