Now in its 23rd year, triple j’s Hottest 100 pulled in 2,094,350 votes cast by music fans from 172 countries around the world. 

The network’s core demographic of 18-24 year olds made up 44% of the voters. 

Of the 16,000+ songs voted for in the 2015 Hottest 100, it was The Rubens song ‘Hoops’ which triple j listeners crowned #1.

triple j’s Content Director Ollie Wards says of the song “Dropping in July 2015, the song’s four to the floor beat and sing along lyrics make it a total earworm for triple j listeners. Despite it being a slower song for the band, ‘Hoops’ always gets the crowd moving at their awesome live shows. After just a few listens the song makes you feel like you’ve been hearing it for years. That familiarity combined with The Rubens trademark RnB-meets-blues-rock swagger got it to 2015’s Hottest 100 #1.”
