YouTube recently launched a feature where you can view the most-replayed scenes in a music video. If you’re watching a video, it’s displayed as a grey graph above the red timeline bar.
As you hover over the graph, the highest peak will be labeled “most-replayed”. So let’s take a look at which scenes of some of the most-viewed rock videos were.
1. “November Rain”, Guns N’ Roses: Slash’s guitar solo in the desert.
2. “Numb”, Linkin Park: The first chorus.
3. “Smells Like Teen Spirit”, Nirvana: The janitor’s dance
4. “Bohemian Rhapsody”, Queen: The part that goes “I see a little silhouetto of a man.”
5. “Do I Wanna Know?”, Arctic Monkeys: When the riff hits.
6. “What’s Up”, 4 Non Blondes: When singer Linda Perry is shown in black-and-white.
7. “Zombie”, The Cranberries: When kids are running in black-and-white, right before the pre-chorus.
8. “Chop Suey!”, System of a Down: A close-up of singer Serj Tankian’s face. (???)
9. “It’s My Life”, Bon Jovi: The first chorus.
10. “Nothing Else Matters”, Metallica: James Hetfield shredding five minutes in.
