On ya Gunners! 'Sweet Child O' Mine' is officially the first 1980s music video to reach one billion views on YouTube.

The video, which has two versions — a black and white version and a combined black and white-color version — debuted in 1987 and was then uploaded to YouTube on Christmas Day in 2009.

Rock now takes top spot in this category for the 70s and 80s, after Queen's 'Bohemian Rhapsody' became the first video from the 70s to reach one billion views earlier this year.
