Guns N’ Roses top Billboard Facebook Live Video chart

Guns N’ Roses are No. 1 on the latest Billboard Top Facebook Live Videos chart with a performance of “Sweet Child O’ Mine” from their December 8 concert in Hawaii.

Billboard reports the footage earned top spot on the monthly chart of videos streamed on Facebook Live as tracked by media analytics company Shareablee, with rankings determined by a formula that blends reactions, comments, shares and first-seven-days views.

“Sweet Child O’ Mine” led the chart in two of the four metrics, including reactions (26,000) and views in its first seven days (447,000).

The Honolulu date – which closed out the band’s three-year Not In This Lifetime reunion tour – was also their first-ever concert in Hawaii.

“Mahalo Hawaii!,” posted GNR after the show. “Thank you for an unforgettable closing night.”

Axl Rose recently streamed a video for his first new song in a decade, “Rock The Rock.”

The clip from a recent episode of the New Looney Tunes series sees the Guns N’ Roses singer taking on an incoming asteroid with music from a band that includes Bugs Bunny and Porky Pig on guitars.

While no details about the possible release of “Rock The Rock” have been confirmed to date, the tune marks Rose’s first new song since Guns N’ Roses issued their sixth album, “Chinese Democracy”, in 2008.

Guns N’ Roses were named the No. 7 Rock News Artist Of The Year as part of the 2018 hennemusic Rock News Awards.
