85,000,000 hits and counting

Posted: March 18, 2018 in Babymetal, Classic Rock, General

It just dawned on me as Babymetal reach 85,000,000 hits on YouTube for the “Gimme Chocolate!!” video today that they have to be the most successful female fronted rock act on the net as we speak. A quick check has a Nightwish video (“Amaranth”) closing in on 98,000,000 hits, but that was uploaded 10 years ago (compared to less than half that time for Babymetal). Also, Babymetal has another 2013 video (“Megitsune”) that has notched up 48,000,000 hits and a 2016 video (“Karate”) with 38,000,000 hits. Add a whole bunch of stuff in the 10,000,000-20,000,000 range and it starts to look rather good, but then it is a phenomenal blend of relentless Metal with a lot of happiness on top (never ever seen before this) and it is all performed so well.

Watch the video on YouTube.
