Hotlanta
The Alman Brothers Band played a song called "Hot'Lanta" in 1971. The Atlanta Constitution is being digitized and we'll soon know if there are any earlier citations, but "Hotlanta" appears to have spread in the 1970s and 1980s.

2 December 1973, New York Times, pg. 651:
"Hotlanta," the good ol' boys from the hinterlands cry, and every night you can find people craning their necks at the glass elevators sliding down the middle of the vast Regency Hyatt House lobby, the No. 1 tourist attraction in the city.
