In the interest of balance and a good time, triple j yesterday broadcast for the first time the second Hottest 100 – the home-schooled, less hot sibling of the actual Hottest 100, which played out like a bloody musical melee on social media after Thrift Shop took the top spot last weekend. 

A contentious win, sure, so naturally that prompted us to ask just ‘What is the greatest number one in Hottest 100 history?‘ It also gave cause to a lot of people who asked ‘um lk wtf?¿?!!1’

Don’t be deterred by these musical vagrants, these unloved urchins of the also-ran airwaves, there’s still a good time to be had amongst a fine list that is bookended by Knife Party at one end and HAIM at the other; HAIM especially, Knife Party, not so much, maybe.
