Triple J’s Hottest 100: Glass Animals take out countdown with track, Heat Waves
Glass Animals have taken out Triple J’s Hottest 100 with the track Heat Waves.
Saturday’s countdown finished with the song from the British group’s third album, 2020’s Dreamland.
The Hottest 100 top three were rounded out by Booster Seat by Spacey Jane and The Difference by Flume.
Glass Animals were favourite for No.1 and took out two other spots on the list, with their track Tangerine at 18 and Your Love (Deja Vu) at 51.
Australian acts made up two-thirds of this year’s list, according to Triple J.
Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews also made his Hottest 100 debut and almost cracked the top 10.
Brisbane duo Mashd N Kutcher’s viral hit Get on the Beers, which sampled quotes from the premier’s pandemic news conferences, came in at No.12.
Mr Andrews congratulated the group in a message during the broadcast, saying he had heard the song “once or twice”.
“I’m pleased to be in great company among other Hottest 100 novelty artists like Denis Leary, Adam Sandler, and Pauline Pantsdown,” he said.
“I think we can all agree their contributions have stood the test of time.”
