The band's bassist Krist Novoselic shared the announcement from the band's official Twitter account. "Thank you to all," he wrote. Novoselic previously tweeted before it reached the milestone the feat would serve to honor late frontman, Kurt Cobain. “The One Billionth view will be for Kurt!!!!” he tweeted six days prior.

Of course, it's far from the first video to reach a billion views, but it is among less than 200 videos to do this. Others include Luis Fonsi's ”Despacito," which is the most-viewed Youtube video of all time with 6.5 billion views, Katy Perry's "Roar" and Justin Beiber's "Sorry."
