Guns N' Roses' Dave Grohl Duet Leads Top Facebook Live Videos Chart
The rockers come in at No. 1 with a stream of its Nov. 15 rendition of “Paradise City” with the Foo Fighters frontman.
Guns N’ Roses tops Billboard’s Top Facebook Live Videos chart for November 2017, charting three videos in all on the latest ranking as the band continues its world tour.
The chart, whose latest edition recaps November activity, is a monthly look at the widest-reaching and most-reacted-to videos posted by musicians on Facebook Live, as tracked by media analytics company Shareablee. Rankings are determined by a formula that blends reactions, comments, shares and first-seven-days views.
As with many of Guns N’ Roses’ top-performing videos on the chart, the band’s No. 1 for November captures its Tulsa, Okla., performance of “Paradise City” with Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters. The clip, uploaded Nov. 15, was the most-reacted-to, most-shared and most-viewed video by a musical act in November, earning 100,000 reactions, 25,000 shares and 2.1 million views, according to Shareablee.
The band also ranks at Nos. 8 and 9 on the November ranking, the former a performance of “Patience” with Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top in Houston, Texas, and the latter a tour leg-closing rendition of “Paradise City” in Los Angeles on Nov. 30.
Rock bands occupy the top three spots of the chart, with Muse and Bon Jovi coming in at Nos. 2 and 3, respectively. Muse’s video, uploaded Nov. 14, was a nearly two-hour livestream of its concert in Yokohama, Japan, scoring 1 million views in its first seven days and 65,000 reactions. Meanwhile, Bon Jovi’s, which was posted Nov. 30 and also earned 1 million views along with 56,000 reactions, was a question-and-answer session with the band.
Though Guns N’ Roses’ Grohl duet was the top video of the month in three out of the four chart metrics, it wasn’t the most-commented-on clip. That distinction goes to Avril Lavigne, whose clip (No. 6) was also a question-and-answer session, earning 33,000 comments on its Nov. 2 posting.
