It’s taken a while, but a music video from the 1980s has finally gotten to a billion views on YouTube. Any guesses on who it’s from?
I absolutely thought it was going to be Rick Astley’s “Never Gunna Give You Up” but alas, it is not. (We need to start Rick Rollin’ more.)
No, the honor goes to Guns N’ Roses’ “Sweet Child O’ Mine.” The band already had a video surpass a billion views thanks to “November Rain,” According to Loudwire.

a-ha’s “Take on Me” is currently the second most-viewed video from the 80’s and Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” is number two for the 90s.
