Fuck you Australia. I honestly don't mind this band, but this isn't even top 200 material.

I'm sure if we dig through Interference's deepest darkest depths we'll find people trying to drum up votes for it.

Oh fucking hell, at the same time as the fucking Rubens hit #1, Shane fucking Watson dismisses Rohit Sharma.

What a disgusting moment.

My cousins got me that single for Christmas that year. Needless to say I never see them anymore.

So many terrible #1s in recent years. This, Big Jet Plane, Thrift Shop, Riptide...

At least when Pretty Fly for a White Guy won back in the late nineties everybody KNEW it was a stupid song.

The Rubens are a bunch of nobodies, a hack band. I'm not entirely surprised they got number one, although, I thought top ten somewhere would be about it for them.

I can remember that one time JJJ played 'Salome' in 2011. It was Xan (Zan?) on the morning show talking about the then-new AB reissue. Wasn't the more familiar dance remix, but it was nice.

That's literally it. Lemon used to be on their 'we're off the air' loop. Oh back around 2000 they used to play Beautiful Day and Stateless and Ground Beneath Her Feet, but that was a long time ago.

This Hottest 100 is definitely going to be recalled in years to come as "remember in 2015 when The Rubens somehow beat Kendrick?"

Wow, LM, have you learned nothing? Hello would never be eligible. She and Taylor are "too mainstream". But Lean On, which went to #1 in 18 countries, is fine. :eyeroll:

Hahahahaha I thought the exact same. Jesus.

This is everything that's wrong with Triple J. This Hoops song, which I'd never heard, wins. Is it a bad song? Like Riptide, Big Jet Plane, etc, no. It isn't bad. But it is just okay. So decidedly average. A pleasant song that would elicit no reaction if it came at #50. King Kunta, on the other hand, was the mammoth single from a revolutionary, fearless, boundary-pushing album. Such fucking bullshit. Really disappointing. But I shouldn't be surprised I guess.

I'll just leave y'all with this, best tweet of the day:
