Nirvana’s music video for their hit song “Smells Like Teen Spirit” reached the massive milestone on YouTube on December 25.
Bassist Krist Novoselic shared his appreciation with fans on Christmas Day, retweeting Nirvana’s announcement:
“Smells Like Teen Spirit,” which science argues is the most iconic song of all time, isn’t the first music video to garner the astounding number of views. South Korean musician PSY was first to the mark with “Gangnam Style,” which was uploaded to YouTube in July 2012 and reached the billion mark by December the same year. It currently has 3.4 billion views.
