“Smells Like Teen Spirit” has entered a very elite club, reaching 1 billion views on YouTube.

Sitting behind Guns N’ Roses’ “November Rain,” the video for the opening track on Nirvana’s Nevermind is the second most-watched of those from 90’s, according to figures released by the streaming site.

Among the rock videos to cross the billion mark is GN’R’s “Sweet Child O Mine,” which tops the 80’s views chart and “Numb” from Linkin Park, which earned second place for the 2000’s. Thanks to the successes of the Queen biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody is the oldest music video to break a billion.
