Guns 'N Roses' rockin' black-and-white video for "Sweet Child O' Mine" has become the first video from the 1980s to hit one billion YouTube views.

The classic, off 1987's Appetite For Destruction, features the band performing the tune and hanging out. The video is actually the band's second decade-based record, as their 1992 video for "November Rain" remains the only video from the 90s to reach a billion views.

The band currently has 6.7 million YouTube subscribers. Watch the "Sweet Child O' Mine" video below.
