It began as a meme, but the now iconic ‘get on the beers’ line made history at the weekend, with Brisbane electronic duo Mashd N Kutcher’s dance hit based on the phrase ranking 12th in triple j’s Hottest 100.
The countdown is done for yet another year, with the Saturday streaming event resulting in British band Glass Animals taking out top spot with their hit ‘Heat Waves’.
Young West Australian guitar band Spacey Jane claimed second place with ‘Booster Seat’, followed by Sydney producer Flume who took out third on the list with ‘The Difference ft. Toro Y Moi’.
Perennial Hottest 100 placers the Hilltop Hoods were on the list yet again with their hit ‘I’m Good?’ coming in at ninth, which saw them equal Foo Fighters and Powderfinger as the band with the most entries in the history of the Hottest 10, with 22 each.
But arguably the biggest news out of the Hottest 100 is that Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews placed in the nation’s most anticipated music countdown, becoming the first politician to do so.
Amid the strangeness of 2020, it’s fair to say that anyone familiar with the streaming smash hit ‘Get On The Beers’ was unsurprised it made the Hottest 100—placing at number 12 on the list.
Andrews, 48, admitted this would probably decrease the competition’s heat.
Two things are clear:
1. Now that a politician has made the Hottest 100, it is no longer hot. Sorry about that.
2. It's officially time to get on the beers.

With the song placing in the top 20 of the Hottest 100, it also saw Mashd N Kutcher awarded shares in Brisbane’s Brew Dog, after the brewery pledged ownership to the electronic duo.
Congrats @MashdNKutcher for coming in at #12 in the Hottest 100 Countdown. Not only have you won the hearts of a nation, you've also scored shares in our Brisbane brewery.

Cardi B also made Hottest 100 history, with her sixth placed hit ‘WAP’ making her the first female rapper to feature in a Top 10, and the highest-ranking woman of colour following Thelma Plum reaching number nine last year with ‘Better In Blak’.
In other great news, the event saw more than $653,000 raised for Lifeline by voters, which means nearly 16,700 crucial calls can be answered.
