Linkin Park become first billion band on YouTube


Rockers Linkin Park have made history after becoming the first band to boast more than one billion hits on

The group's videos, live performance clips and interview footage have helped the hitmakers gain access to the exclusive club, which already counts Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Justin Bieber as members.

Gaga was the first to break the billion hits mark on YouTube in 2010.

Over one tenth of all the hits Linkin Park notched up are linked to the video of "New Divide," the band's theme from "Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen."

EFF...even the title gives it you see, the others aren't, as the title states...they were the first BAND to hit a Billion views...which is different from solo artists like Gaga, Rhianna, and Beiber...hence, the article was written just just read it poorly...just in case you missed it earlier, I'll help you by re-printing the title of the know...just to help you out a little!!!

Linkin Park actully had over a billion views a couple of years ago. Then Youtube decided to delete most of their video's because of a dispute between them and Warner Music Group (WMG.) Looks like Linkin Park wins again. Best band there is was and ever will be. Period. Chester Bennington, Mike Shinoda, Brad Delson, Rob Bourdan, Joe Hahn, and Phoenix. All of you haters have absolutely no idea of what good music is, get the F*** off this article.

If I was in that club, I would cancel my membership immediately.


Congrats to LP, though. "Living Things" placed them firmly back at the top of my favorite artists list.
