Around this time of year, Australia’s national broadcaster Triple J counts down the Hottest 100 songs of the previous year, as voted by the Australian public. It’s one of the most popular broadcasts from this radio station of the year and this year was even more outstanding because the Australian band, The Wiggles, took out the number one song.
Back at the beginning of last year, the well-known children’s musical act covered a song by the indie Australian band, Tame Impala in Triple J’s Like A Version studio. The song, titled Elephant, racked up millions of views on Youtube and fans of all ages were in raptures when The Wiggles combined the song with their famous hit – Fruit Salad.
As you can imagine, when it was announced the number one spot on the Hottest 100 was Elephant, social media went into overdrive with comments from everyone. Sure, some were annoyed at the win but most were thrilled with The Wiggles finally gaining the recognition they probably deserve.
So here’s some of the best reactions we’ve seen to this amazing win for the Australian music scene. After all, there are generations of young people who’ve grown up with The Wiggles and now they can still listen to their favourite band on Triple J!
And if you’ve been living under a rock and you haven’t heard it yet, here’s The Wiggles Like A Version of Elephant – winner of the 2022 Hottest 100…
