Kitaen starred in the music video for the song, which hits No. 1 on Hot Hard Rock Songs.
In the week ending May 13, "Here I Go Again," which led the Billboard Hot 100 for a week in October 1987, drew 2.5 million U.S. streams, up 22%, and sold 1,000 downloads, up 178%, according to MRC Data. (Older songs are allowed on the Hot 100 and its genre-based charts that use the same methodology if ranking in the lists' top halves and have meaningful reasons for their resurgences.)
Kitaen died May 7 at age 59. A cause of death has not yet been announced.
