"captain of the b team baby"

triple j’s Hottest 200 of 2020 took place yesterday, counting down the 100 songs that just missed out on Saturday’s Hottest 100 countdown.

While Glass Animals took out the top spot on the Hottest 100 with ‘Heat Waves’, it was Sydney band Middle Kids who got #101 with their track ‘R U 4 Me?’.

Celebrating their topping of one countdown but their omission from another, the band took to social media to write: “captain of the b team baby”.
