Even though the “November Rain” music video is 26 years old in 2018, nothing is slowing this Guns N’ Roses staple down.
The GnR ballad is the first music video from the ’90s to pass the billion-view threshold on YouTube, according to Forbes. It achieved this result by hitting an average of 560,000 views per day in 2017.
The majority of the views aren’t coming from the United States, or Canada: 83 per cent of the views come from Brazil, Mexico, and Argentina.
No ’80s video has yet to hit the billion-view mark, but Guns N’ Roses could be the first band to hit that record too: “Sweet Child O’ Mine” leads the pack with 696 million views.
