Courtney Barnett is one name that needs no introduction.

I mean, she basically took over triple j from 2015-16. She’s won numerous ARIA Awards, and toured here and abroad countless times. Just a month ago, she was one of triple j’s most played artists.

Gosh darn it, she even copped a Grammy nomination. There aren’t many Australian acts who have achieved even just a fraction of what ol’ mate Barnett has.

We’re counting down her 10 biggest tracks, according to streaming figures. We’ve also popped in any triple j Hottest 100 placings, according to hottest100.org.
