And for those of the patriotic sort; Countries represented;
Australia - 48 songs
United States - 29 songs
England - 13 songs
New Zealand - 5 songs
Iceland - 2 songs
France - 1 song
Norway - 1 song
Scotland - 1 song

Over 800,000 votes were received, and over 1000 parties registered for the 2008 Hottest 100. Not too shabby at all.

Fantastic contribution by the Aussies, and I'm very happy Birds of Tokyo and Cog got multiple entries Smile The Kings of Leon at number 1, was predictable to say the least... I'm not all too happy about that one though. Granted it aired on Triple J long before Nova, Fox, Triple M etc were airing it, so it had a MUCH longer run.
