Consider this question: What song from the last century has been streamed the most on all platforms?
If you guessed Queen and “Bohemian Rhapsody,” you’re right.
When it was released in 1975, no one had personal computers, let alone access anything close to the Internet. But when streaming hit with the arrival of YouTube 30 years later, it exploded into a new type of cultural phenomenon.
Yesterday, Universal Music revealed that “Rhapsody” has blown past 1.6 billion streams, both for the song and the music video.
In second spot is Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” followed by Guns N’ Roses “Sweet Child O’ Mine,” GNR’s “November Rain,” and “Take On Me” by a-ha. (Via TheMusic.com.au)
