Remember when music videos were declared so dead that MTV retreated to the Jersey Shore and MuchMusic became Much? Well, music television may have gone the way of the dot-matrix printer but music videos have simply galloped on over to YouTube.
In fact, 29 out of the 30 most-watched YouTube videos are music videos — with "Charlie Bit My Finger — Again" as the lone non-music entry. (Though someone must have made a dubstep remix.)
K-Pop legend Psy — whose ubiquitous "Gangnam Style" is hitting the two billion mark, almost double Bieber's "Baby" in second place — is the undisputed champion of YouTube's most watched videos list. He's locked down three spots, including his "Gangnam Style" remake with female K-Pop star Hyuna at 22 thanks to 481 million views and his "Gangnam" follow-up "Gentleman" at number seven with 687 million views.
Other multiple most-watched video artists include Bieber, Bruno Mars, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Eminem and, sigh, Pitbull.
Oh, and don't tell your daughter but despite her best efforts "Let It Go" from "Frozen" has not yet cracked the top 30 with a "mere" 242 million views since December.
Here's the full list of YouTube 30 most watched videos, but we don't expect any of them to knock Psy off his high horse.
