For any artists, having a song appear in Triple J’s hottest 100 is a big deal. For Australian acts however, there seems to be a deeper level of appreciation for being recognised by fans of Australian music. The following is a selection of reactions posted on Twitter/Facebook from Australian artists who have so far entered 2012s Hottest 100.
Sparkadia – #56: China & #47: Mary –“Wow! 2 sparkadia tunes so far in the hottest 100. Amazing. Thankyou!!! #strong”, “#Thankyou to everyone who voted for #china in the #hottest100. You all have such great #taste x Alex”
Illy – #35: Cigarette (after having a song voted in to the Hottest 100 for the third straight year) – “#35. 3PEAT. BOOM!”
Hilltop Hoods – #10 I Love It (on their freshly finished BDO set) – “‘I Love It’ #10 in the Hottest 100!!! Thanks so much everyone, especially
