‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ Reaches One Billion Views On Youtube

Rick Astley‘s 1987 hit, “Never Gonna Give You Up,” which found new life with the “Rickrolling” prank, one of the earliest YouTube memes, passed one billion views on YouTube Wednesday (July 28th) since it was uploaded almost 12 years ago.

“Never Gonna Give You Up” is only the fourth music video from the 1980s to have one million views, along with Guns N’ Roses‘ “Sweet Child o’ Mine,” A-ha‘s “Take on Me,” and Michael Jackson‘s “Billie Jean.”

Some would argue that this version (video below) is the best version of the Rick Astley hit. Enjoy this ear-worm from your BFF, Zac Grantham.
