Never underestimate the popularity of Guns N’ Roses. They’ve just hit the YouTube billion views club for the second time.
2018 saw their rather legendary clip for November Rain become the first 1990s music video to clock up over one billion hits – and it continues to remain on its lonesome in that many zeroed club as we type.
Now the band’s 1980s smasheroonie Sweet Child O’ Mine has repeated the feat.
It isn’t surprising when you learn that Guns N’ Roses have snared an average of 3.1 million views on YouTube every day in 2019. Every day! Not surprisingly, their homeland of the USA is the biggest viewer, with Brazil coming in second.
