#ChangeTheDate
Always Was, Always Will Be.

Earlier this year, triple j finally listened to the thousands of voices calling for respect and had a review into the date they hold the Hottest 100 countdown. Unfortunately, they decided the whining of a noisy minority of racists on the internet was more important than showing a bit of empathy towards Australia's first peoples and left the celebration on that day, perpetuating division and hurt.

Most young Australians don't have Australia Day parties, because we've begun to recognise that 'celebrating' invasion, dispossession and genocide is what is commonly called a Major **** Move. But because triple j holds its Hottest 100 countdown on that date, thousands of people across the country celebrate on a day which is one of mourning for Australia's first people.

By voting for a song which is both an explanation and rejection of the idea of January 26 as a day of celebration - and which also happens to be a thorough banger, thanks to the effort of Briggs, Trials and Dan Sultan - we have the ability to send a message to triple j. Let's end the division and change the date.

Vote for A.B. Original's "January 26" in the Hottest 100.
