6 Music's 100 Greatest Hits: The Top 100

At 7am on 11 March 2002 BBC Radio 6 Music was born. Since then we reckon we've played over one million songs!

In January 2013 we compiled our Top 100 Greatest Hits and asked YOU to vote for the greatest song released in 6 Music's lifetime.

We used the results of that vote to compile this definitive chart of 6 Music's Top 100 Greatest Hits.
