Australian Conservatives have launched their own song list to listen to on Australia Day after Triple J dumped our national date of celebration for their ‘Hottest 100’.
Writing yesterday afternoon in his first Weekly Dose of Common Sense for 2018, Australian Conservatives founder and leader, senator Cory Bernardi said Triple J’s decision was “complete BS and needs to be called out as such”.
Senator Bernardi went on to say: “If you like Australian music and want to celebrate Australia Day with some great home-grown tracks, the team at Australian Conservatives have put together the AC100 playlist on Spotify. It’s a collection of some of our favourite Aussie music to help you celebrate Australia Day.”
You can access the play list and vote for your favourites at www.conservatives.org.au/ac100
Overnight, play list nominees Darren Hayes from Savage Garden and the Hilltop Hoods complained on Twitter about being on the list. Senator Bernardi responded to Hayes that he needed to get over himself, and that music is for everyone.
