Triple J’s Hottest 100 of 2012

Millions of people from across the globe tuned in to celebrate the typical Australia Day tradition – Triple J’s Hottest 100 countdown. After 1.5 million votes were cast, the very predictable first place winner was Macklemore and Ryan LewisThrift Shop featuring Wanz. It’s pretty easy to see how Thrift Shop won too, it is an incredibly infectious song that has taken the world by storm. It has a beat that makes you want to dance as well as catchy, nonsense lyrics. Macklemore and Ryan Lewis have been incredibly smart in releasing their most commercial song from their album The Heist as Thrift Shop has gained them greater recognition and millions of fans worldwide. If you’re a fan of Thrift Shop make sure you check out the album because it is filled with incredible songs with insightful lyrics.
