Linkin Park, that nu-metal rock band you tell everyone you outgrew 10 years ago but actually didn't, has become the first rock band to hit 1 billion views on YouTube. According to Fuse, the band is now in the company of super-pop acts like Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber and Rihanna in terms of most-viewed music videos.
Another video is making headlines today: "Gangnam Style." According to the "Guinness Book of World Records," Psy's infectious, hilarious and hypnotic horse dance video has become the most-liked YouTube video of all time, with over 2 million likes. To celebrate, you should probably go watch it again.
