There were no female artists in Triple J’s Hottest 100 of All Time

As in, none.

There were lots of oldies (presented here in some freaking awesome graphs) like the Pixies, a few lines sung by women, and even a girl bassist — but as this FasterLouder thread points out, we’re really clutching straws here people.

I am genuinely perplexed. Madonna, anyone? Bjork? Kate Bush?

Anyway, my hazy conclusion has been a) the music industry is probably a bit of a boys club and b) Triple J listeners were growing up and most influenced by a certain generation of all-male acts. Also, are mens voices more pleasant? Maybe that’s it… I JUST DON’T UNDERSTAND.
