The Hottest 100: Ranking the top 50 songs with GIFs

After ranking the first 50 songs in the Hottest 100 last night, I went out to sink tinnies and watch some incredible Australian bands play at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl to announce the Australian Music Prize shortlist. Only hours after #1 was announced did I discover that all I'd missed were a bunch of Arctic Monkeys songs. Here are the top 50 songs as voted by Australia from 2013 given their proper critical appraisal.

    Poor baby, I'm amazed your eyes haven't rolled clean out of your head if you hated that many of the songs.
