Triple J Hottest 100 2018 Winner and Top 10

The 2018 Hottest 100: See Who Made the Top 10!

The Triple J Hottest 100 countdown moved to January 27 and this year, was all about Gang of Youths and Kendrick Lamar, with both names regularly thrown in as possible first-place contenders.

Local band Gang of Youths' songs "Let Me Down Easy," and "The Deepest Sighs, The Frankest Shadows," from their ARIA-award winning album Go Farther in Lightness and Kendrick's song "Humble.," from his Grammy-nominated album Damn., were all expected to make the top 10, along with Lorde's hit, "Green Light."

The feather-ruffling date change had no ill effect on the beloved countdown: more than 2.3 million votes were registered, breaking records and beating last year's engagement rates by five percent — not bad, huh?
