Evanescence Have Joined The 1 Billion Views Club On YouTube


Goth-tinged alternative rock outfit Evanescence have joined the rather exclusive 1 billion views club on YouTube. The original upload of the music video for band’s breakout 2003 single “Bring Me To Life” recently crossed that milestone, landing them alongside the few other heavier artists to achieve such a feat, including AC/DC‘s “Thunderstruck“; Metallica‘s “Nothing Else Matters“; Guns N’ Roses‘ “Sweet Child O’ Mine“; Nirvana‘s “Smells Like Teen Spirit“; System Of A Down‘s “Chop Suey!” and Linkin Park‘s “In The End” and “Numb“.

The official music video for the track was originally uploaded to the video streaming service some 12 years ago, while the 3x multi-platinum certified single remains their most popular track to date, having racked up over 592 million plays on Spotify alone. Despite the controversy on the song’s origins, it played a key role in propelling the band’s 2003 debut album “Fallen” to 7x multi-platinum status.
