Aaaaaaaaanddd Daniel Ricciardo is awake.

Woke up, it's Australia Day so what does one do? Streams #Hottest100 @triplej. Living in Europe won't take away some traditions 🙌🏼🇦🇺

Flume gets the spot everyone's been waiting for him to get. Great track #24.

#24 @flumemusic - ‘Some Minds’ {Ft. @Wyattish} #Hottest100

More Jamie XX (#26). So many favorites for the Top 10 have already come and gone. What's gonna make it? Drake?

#26 @jamie___xx - ‘I Know There's Gonna Be (Good Times)’ {Ft. @youngthug / @PopcaanMusic} #Hottest100

Posted at

#27 and it seems we're heading into the wind-down before the start of the Top 20. Vallis Alps came from Triple J Unearthed, awesome stuff to see them so high up the list.

#27 @vallisalps - ‘Young’ #Hottest100

Solid Oz Day setup going on in this pic:

Seems like everyone loved The Wombats this year; this in at #29.

#29 @thewombats - ‘Greek Tragedy’ #Hottest100

Also, let's take this opportunity to reflect on Karl Stefanovic, who earlier today blew his thongs out.

Oh no @karlstefanovic busted a plugga! #straya #Today9

Wil Anderson, like most of Australia, is drunk.

Number 30: Peking Duk. Make up your own Chinese Restaurant jokes at hoe I am too drunk #Hottest100

This just in: Pocock loves Urthboy.

#tune! This was in my Top 10. #hottest100 https://t.co/SbKYJ2l0AT

Oh, completely forgot about Jamie XX. He'll definitely have quite a few tracks coming up. What an album, what a tune. 👍👍👍

Here's a behind-the-scenes look at what's going on at Triple J.

It's #hottest100 day and I'm jacked up on lamingtons playing some wonderful tunes with my friend from school 💯⚡️👌

More trippy album artwork as Tame Impala go in at #34.

#34 @tameimpala - ‘Eventually’ #Hottest100

Posted at

We have just under three hours left, and SAFIA is #35 with "Counting Sheep." Stay awake, though. We're almost at the top 20.

#35 @SAFIAmusic - ‘Counting Sheep’ #Hottest100

~allll my friendsss are wasteeedddd~ #36

#36 @snakehipsuk - ‘All My Friends’ {Ft. @Tinashe/@chancetherapper} #Hottest100

Also 2016 is for sure gonna be the year of Chance the Rapper.

Florence and the Machine with some more tracks in the 100. She's creeping up on Courtney Barnett, surely?

.@flo_tweet (Florence And The Machine) - Delilah [16:52]

Posted at

We're back. Sorry, my computer crashed again. I'm not sure if our site has handled a post with this many embeds at once before. #39 is Illy. The chorus is a lot of him saying "Fuck you."

#39 @illyal - ‘Swear Jar’ #Hottest100

Posted at

Yep, Courtney Barnett has had FOUR entries already in the Hottest 100. Wolfmother has the record for most in the one year with SIX. So let's see if history is about to be made.

For those asking, that was @courtneymelba's fourth entry into this year's #Hottest100

Had to step out for a bit, sincere apologies, but Hayden James' "Something About You" is some stunning stuff. I'd also never seen the album art, which is very striking indeed.

#44 @haydenj_music - ‘Something About You’ #Hottest100

Posted at

Bring Me The Horizon at #45. They've had plenty of tracks this year. Good for them.

#45 @bmthofficial - ‘Throne’ #Hottest100

Posted at

Goood beats. #47 is Asta feat. Allday.

#47 @Asta_world - ‘Dynamite’ {Ft. @alldaychubbyboy} #Hottest100

Posted at

oooooh that's what he's saying.

Like this song by Parkway Drive but as far as I can tell all the lyrics are FUCK YOU DAD #Hottest100

Posted at

Oh good, that dude is screaming at me again.

#48 @parkwayofficial - ‘Crushed’ #Hottest100

Posted at

Boo Seeka's "Deception Bay" is #50, but more importantly look at this:

A cracker for number 17: Frankie Valli's Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You #Smoothest100

Posted at

Same.

The Hottest 100? Never heard of it. In fact, I've never listened to any music. I am above sound.

Posted at

It's CHVRCHES. They hate U.

#51 @CHVRCHES - ‘Clearest Blue’ #Hottest100

Posted at

Ratatat was always a really under-used Pokemon imo. Like, I understand that it was a normal type, but hyperfang is a curious move. It has a really high critical hit chance. Also, they're kinda cool looking. Never really understood why they were purple tho

#52 @ratatatmusic - ‘Cream On Chrome’ #Hottest100

It's Matt Corby! Here's how to sing every Matt Corby song ever: pout your lips like you're saying "ooh" and then just say "ooh" at different volumes and length! You're welcome, it's angelic!

#53 @MattCorby - ‘Monday’ #Hottest100

Indie darling Skrillex is up next, teaming up with ZHU to get "Working For It" to #54.

#54 @ZHUmusik x @Skrillex x @unofficialTHEY - ‘Working For It’ #Hottest100

Posted at

These kiwi dudes are awesome I saw them live a few months back and the singer climbed up the speakers. IDK why, because he just got back down. But it was interesting, I tell you what.

#55 @UMO - ‘Multi-Love’ #Hottest100

Posted at

Sia is apparently still breathing and "Alive" ;) ;) ;) at #56. Good on her. Weird, though. Expected her to be higher.

#56 @Sia - ‘Alive’ #Hottest100

Posted at

Oh this is nice. I mean. I can't tell if its just because they're not screaming at me.

#57 @alpineband - ‘Foolish’ #Hottest100

Posted at

Alison Wonderland (cool) hits #59 (also cool).

#59 @AWonderDJ - ‘Run’ #Hottest100

Posted at

Oh Christ these dudes got Triple J tattoos.

What can I say... @mattandalex fans are loyal #PackErUpBoys

Annnnnnnnd straight after getting your heart racing with Disclosure we're back to the chill vibes of Tame Impala.

#61 @tameimpala - ‘‘Cause I'm A Man’ #Hottest100

Posted at

Yoooooo Disclosure's "Omen" with Sam Smith is at #62 and yes my computer did crash (again).

#62 @disclosure - ‘Omen’ {Ft. @samsmithworld} #Hottest100

Posted at

Alabama Shakes in at #65 with "Don't Wanna Fight." Funny story about Alabama actually. One time I was trekking through America's south and at around 1am, in Alabama, my car was stopped and searched by police. Haha, good story. Anyway. This is a good song.

Posted at

TKAY Maidza gets her first track in the Hottest 100, probably the first of many!

#66 @TkayMaidza - ‘M.O.B.’ #Hottest100

Posted at

Someone just proposed on radio! Also, another dude texted in to say he just lost his virginity to the countdown. Good for him, I guess. Anyway here's The Wombats (again).

#67 @thewombats - ‘Give Me A Try’ #Hottest100

Side note: Snapchat forgot Tasmania on their Australia Day filters today :S

Posted at

It's the sex number! #69 is Japanese Wallpaper.

#69 @jpnswllppr - ‘Forces’ {Ft. @airlingx} #Hottest100

Posted at

Florence & The Machine's breakup track, "What Kind of Man" at #70.

#70 @flo_tweet + The Machine - ‘What Kind Of Man’ #Hottest100

Posted at

#72 is Birds of Tokyo! Did you know they got their name after one of the members read about the lack of birds in Tokyo's CBD because of pollution? Well, now you do.

#72 @BIRDSOFTOKYO - ‘Anchor’ #Hottest100

Posted at

Apologies, the internet seemed to be messin' up a bit. We're back though. Major Lazer played at #74, which makes it three for the day. Now it's NGAIIRE at #73, "Once" being one of the most chill songs of the year.

Posted at

The DMA's, who had one of their tracks in a covered version earlier in the countdown, are at #77!

#77 @dmasmusic - ‘Lay Down’ #Hottest100

Posted at

We bring the mood down a little bit for #78, chillin' with Jack Garratt's "Weathered."

#78 @JackGarratt - ‘Weathered’ #Hottest100

Posted at

More swearing as A$AP Rocky's "Everyday" crashes through at #80.

#80 @asvpxrocky - ‘Everyday’ {Ft. @rodstewart/@miguel/@MarkRonson} #Hottest100

It is my understanding that he still loves bad bitches.

Posted at

#81 on the countdown is some Aussie dude rapping over an old Angus & Julia Stone track. OK?

Posted at

Let's check in on BuzzFeed News' Lane Sainty. Lane?

@lanesainty lost my mind seeing Stevie Nicks do Gyspy live. What a moment.

Posted at

This is... Not a bad idea.

the triple j hottest 100 should let you vote for ten songs and against one.

Posted at

No Sufjan Stevens yet. Like, I get that it's not exactly uplifting music. But still...

Posted at

... And another one.

#82 @courtneymelba - ‘Depreston’ #Hottest100

Flight Facilities crushin' it rn with ~another~ track.

#83 @FlightFac - ‘Down To Earth’ {Radio Edit} #Hottest100
