Vevo has shared the top 10 most-viewed rock videos of all time
Vevo, the music video streaming platform, is celebrating its 10th birthday this year. Now, they’re celebrating the only way they know how; by creating their own special “best of” lists and we’re starting with some rock classics.
The list is only focusing on the US but still remains a great view of what we’ve all been watching these years. With a host of incredible acts discovered by Vevo it’s easy to forget that they have a huge back catalogue of uploaded rock videos, over 400,000 in fact.
The below list shows the top 10 most-viewed videos and includes some notable favourites you’d expect to see. Nirvana ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit‘ is obviously high up, then Guns ‘N’ Roses’ ‘Sweet Child O’ Mine’, which passed 1 billion views on YouTube recently, is a place ahead of Cobain and Co. But we were a little confused by the number one spot.
Perhaps confused is the wrong word, I think we mean disappointed. The top of the pile is a position held by Imagine Dragons and their hit ‘Believer’. While we go pull our hair out we think we should probably all take a long hard look in the mirror, after watching these videos.
10 – The Cranberries — ‘Zombie’
9 – Evanescence — ‘Bring Me to Life’
8 – Five Finger Death Punch — ‘Wrong Side of Heaven’
