EUROPE’s Video For ‘The Final Countdown’ Hits One Billion Plays On YouTube

Europe's music video for the song "The Final Countdown" has surpassed one-billion streams on YouTube.


Well it looks like it has finally happened, and don’t act surprised either because it was only a matter of time. EUROPE‘s music video for the song “The Final Countdown” has surpassed one-billion streams on YouTube.

The Nick Morris-directed video for the 1986 EUROPE single hit the massive milestone just recently and given the fact that the song keeps popping up at sporting events alone has kept the song within the zeitgeist.

“Unbelievable! One Billion Views!” commented EUROPE. “You can’t really make these things up. We’re just five musicians from the suburbs of Stockholm. So lucky to still have the success in the rock world and now something like this. It’s awesome to say the least. Thanks so much to everyone out there who has enjoyed The Final Countdown song and video! We’re sure we have annoyed a few people along the way as well with this song : ) In any case we are super thrilled!”

EUROPE are expected to soon announce a 40th anniversary European tour. Take a wild guess what the encore will be at every single concert.
