Art vs Science take Hottest 100 by surprise

Although this year’s Triple J Hottest 100 will most likely be remembered as the one where the horse bolted out of the gates four days in advance, the announcement of the full list still held some surprises for listeners of the Australia Day countdown

There were no prizes for ‘guessing’ the #1 song, with Mumford & Sons taking it out as the leaked info indicated last week, however the next in line did cause some surprise with hotly tipped indie electro band Art vs Science coming up trumps for Parlez Vous Francais? The band are about to hit the road for the Good Vibrations Festival tour in February, and you can be sure they’ll draw a significantly bigger crowd as a result of their ranking.

Other notable mentions include Phoenix with Lisztomania at #4 and 1901 at #13, La Roux with Bulletproof at #6 and In For The Kill at #27, the Bag Raiders with Shooting Stars at #18, The Bloody Beetroots with Warp 1.9 at #23 and Awesome at #43, Simian Mobile Disco with Audacity of Huge at #41, The Prodigy with Omen at #68, MSTRKRFT with Heartbreaker at #73, Miami Horror with Sometimes at #82 and Deadmau5 Ghosts N Stuff at #96.
