AceShowbiz - Nirvana's classic music video for "Smells Like Teen Spirit" has officially been viewed one billion times on YouTube.

The grunge era rockers, comprised of Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic and late vocalist Kurt Cobain, reached the streaming milestone with the promo for the 1991 earlier this month (December 2019), and the news was announced on the band's official Facebook fan page on Christmas Day.

"Thanks to you all!!!!," bassist Novoselic gushed on his Twitter account.

Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" is now the second most-watched music video from the 1990s on the streaming platform, according to YouTube's recently released list of the top music videos of every decade from the 1980s through the 2010s.

Guns N' Roses topped the tally in both the 1980s and 1990s categories, snagging the number one spot for "Sweet Child O' Mine" and "November Rain", respectively.

Crazy Frog's "Axel F" track came in first for the 2000s with close to 2 billion views, and Luis Fonsi's "Despacito" hit with Daddy Yankee ruled the 2010s with over 6.5 billion views.
