Well, this was always going to be the way it was gonna go, hey? There were rumours that Amy Shark would edge ya boy Flerm out of the top spot, and even a longer shot that Childish Gambino‘s Redbone might come through, but… nope. Your triple j Hottest 100 #1 is Flume’s Never Be Like You.

Speaking to triple j after it all went down, he seemed pretty dazed.
Thank you everyone who voted. Thank you everyone in this room right now. Everyone in my house, please don’t break anything.
Your top five, for posterity, and for you to argue endlessly over with your deadshit mates:
1. Flume – Never Be Like You
2. Amy Shark – Adore
3. Tash Sultana – Jungle
4. Hilltop Hoods – 1955 (Ft. Montaigne/Tom Thum)
5. Childish Gambino – Redbone
There ya go, team. We’ll see you next year, and we’re sure it’ll be an equally furious affair.
