It's time to countdown Australia's favourite songs of 2022 and with voting closed, speculation over the frontrunners is emerging.
Australian DJ and music producer Flume is tipped to take out the top spot this year with the song "Say Nothing", featuring MAY-A, according to Sportsbet and TAB.
Other top contenders on betting sites include Emily Rose and Interplanetary Criminal's "B.O.T.A. (Baddest of them All)" and Gang of Youths' "In the Wake of Your Leave".
"I'm looking forward to not just crowning a new #1 song of the year, but also seeing which amazing artists crack the 100," Triple J host Dave Ruby Howe told ACM.
"These 100 songs give us an accurate snapshot of where music tastes were in 2022," he said.
"It's a musical artefact that we can look back on to gauge the sound of triple j in a calendar year," the radio host said.
The Hottest 100 countdown kicks off from 12pm AEDT on Saturday, January 28 and can be streamed here.
For those following the full countdown, songs ranked 200 to 101 will be revealed from 10am AEDT on Friday, January 27.
Catering to an older audience or those coming down from Saturday's party, Triple J spinoff radio station, Double J will revisit the countdown of 2002.
"It's the summer tradition that reminds just how great our music taste was 20 years ago.
"While occasionally making us wonder what the hell we were thinking voting for some of these songs," Double J said, announcing the 2002 countdown.

The Triple J Hottest 100 is a cultural institution, holding an election for Australia's favourite songs annually since 1989.
The first Hottest 100 competitions allowed listeners to vote on any song, regardless of release date.
Joy Division won the first countdown with their 1980 hit "Love Will Tear Us Apart".
The Hottest 100 has courted its fair share of controversy, from Wil Anderson and Adam Spencer's fictional song "6.66 (1/100th of The Number of The Beast)" to the 2015 "#Tay4Hottest100" campaign.
Consultation with Indigenous representative groups, and a survey of public opinion, reflected that Hottest 100 celebrations held on Australia Day lacked sensitivity towards the country's violent past.
Triple J shifted the countdown's date in 2018, from January 26 to the fourth weekend of the year.
