Due to the nature of sound waves, they travel fastest through solids rather than liquids or gasses, due to the close proximity of molecules in solids that can easily vibrate and transfer the sound waves.

Explanation:
Sound wave is a mechanical wave. It travels in the form of longitudinal wave through physical mediums such as solid, liquid and gas. It has different velocities of solid , liquid and gas.
The molecules in solid are tightly and closely packed. Sound wave in solid can be easily transferred from one molecule to another in very short interval of time. It means that sound wave travels fastest through solid mediums.
