A-ha's "Take On Me" Passes 1 Billion Views

A-ha's revolutionary music video for "Take On Me" has passed the one billion views milestone on YouTube, immortalizing the Norwegian trio in Internet history.

The 1985 music video holds the distinctive honor as one of the few 80's videos to join the billion-views party, alongside Guns N' Roses' "November Rain" and Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody." The electro-pop outfit also celebrates becoming the first European act to achieve the streaming landmark while their legendary "Take On Me" takes the title as the only video of its time to feature the rotoscope-styled illustration.
