November Rain becomes first ’90s video to top a billion YouTube views
Guns N’ Roses’ November Rain video has become the first music promo from the 1990s to score over a billion YouTube streams, according to Forbes.
Axl Rose and his bandmates also hold the title of most-viewed 1980s hit as well, with their video for Sweet Child O’ Mine, which has almost 695 million views.
The nine minute long video for November Rain was released in 1992 and has become a steady view in recent years, following Axl’s reunion with former bandmates Slash and Duff McKagan for the Not In This Lifetime… tour, which is currently the fourth highest grossing tour of all time.
The trio and its bandmates are currently wrapping up the European leg of the tour.
