Kendrick Lamar Wins Triple J’s Hottest 100 Of 2017

As the internet’s foremost stat-crunchers rightfully predicted, Kung Fu Kenny nabbed the number 1 spot in today’s big countdown with his highly J-rotated single, narrowly beating out Aussie faves Gang Of Youths, who bagged a silver medal on the hottest hundo podium with ‘Let Me Down Easy’ as well as taking #41 with their Like A Version cover of Middle East’s ‘Blood’, #5 with ‘The Deepest Sighs, The Frankest Shadows’ and ‘What Can I Do If The Fire Goes Out?’ at #10.

The rest of the top 10 songs Australia voted as the most fire of 2017 included Lorde’s ‘Greenlight’ at #6, Methyl Ethel’s ‘Ubu’ at #4 and Vance Joy at #9.

Awesomely, this year’s Hottest hundo was 65% homegrown, with 65 of the tunes to get a guernsey on the Big List performed by Aussie artists, including 6 out of the top 10.

26 artists also popped their Hottest 100 cherries this year, including UK jokester grimelord Big Shaq with ‘Man’s Not Hot’.

ICYMI: This year marked the first time in yonkers that JJJ’s Hottest 100 didn’t take place on Australia Day, after triple j decided to move the countdown away from 26th January.
