Linkin Park Are First Band To Get 1 Billion YouTube Hits
Linkin Park have become the first rock act to receive 1 billion hits on YouTube. Thanks to their Linkin Park TV channel on YouTube, they're miles ahead of the next biggest rock acts on the channel. Red Hot Chili Peppers are in second place with 327 million hits, and Green Day follow with a relatively small 245 million. They're not the first musical act to pass 1 billion views. In the pop world, Lady Gaga hit the milestone in 2010, and Justin Bieber soon screamed ahead with a whopping 2.8 billion. Rihanna has also passed 1 billion. Despite some criticism of their fifth studio album "Living Things", the band have had a hugely successful year with the album selling over 500,000 units. Better yet, their breakthrough album "Hybrid Theory" made it to 10 million sales in the US last month, 12 years after its original release. Linkin Park is currently touring with Incubus on the Honda Civic tour. Do you spend much time streaming your favorite bands on YouTube, or do you prefer a more traditional platform? Let us know in the comments.
