good but seriously overrated song.

surprised November Rain hit the mark first but I guess that had a huge budget video which would’ve helped. on Spotify Sweet Child has twice as many streams than it.

Even more surprising when you consider it has a time-length of over 9 minutes! I know it's a hugely popular song in the rock scene but still!

Looking at kworb, 'Sweet Child O' Mine' is the 250th most viewed music video of 2019 ('November Rain' is the 308th with 153m). Regarding music videos over 5 years old, 'Sweet Child O' Mine' is currently averaging as the 49th most viewed with 427k ('November Rain' is higher at 29 with 500k). On the list of most viewed music videos of all time, 'Sweet Child O' Mine' is 162nd ('November Rain' is 112nd).

I tried to guess which song it would be before I opened the thread...I thought it would be Never Gonna Give You Up! Turns out that's "only" on 611 million. You'd think Thriller would be in the running too but it's at 621 million!
